That's "bollocks."

And there goes my zero tolerance for commercials featuring sweet kids.

F-ing priceless.

How dirty is "bollocks" considered to be in places where it's heard regularly? Around here, "nuts", "balls", and the like probably rate around a 4 to 6 out of 10, depending on the audience. Also, we don't generally say "balls" when something bad happens.

Also, we don't generally say "balls" when something bad happens.In England, I'd say it is slightly more severe than 'nuts' or 'balls' - perhaps because it has only one literal meaning - testicles.

Its comedy value offsets its severity a bit, though.
