Onze Taal > some inaccessible site: "Mierenneuker [ant-fucker] is the swearword most frequently used against the [Dutch] police." Here, however, is the case of the man who was fined for calling a traffic warden an ant-fucker, appealed, and won: according to the judge, "ant-fucker" can also be complimentary. The British equivalent of an ant-fucker is a nitpicker, which is still more or less acceptable as a compliment. The Spanish, poor things, according to WordReference, are stuck with the pathetic pararse en pequeñeces, getting bogged down in trivia.
