Swearing in different tongues

#1
Has anyone else noticed that no matter what language a person is speaking, when it comes to swearing they immediately revert to English. I have worked with German, French, Italian, Thai and even Chinese and in times off stress when they need to curse I can always understand the words. Is this the reason that English has been chosen as the language of commerce?

Ahh, many a truth told in jest Josie :)
It stems from the hundred years war, when the French were perceived as filthy beings, using filthy language. Swearing was "against the Church" (ie totally wrong for "respectful" people ) thus the saying came about....
