Which cities in the world are the rudest and most foul-mouthed? Based on the word choices in tips left by Foursquare users, we have a list.
The folks at location-based social-networking service recently took the time to discover which cities in the world are the rudest. They did this by running a query which checked for curse words within the tips left by users who "check in" to a location.
Foursquare took the results of that query, tossed out any cities which has less than 1,000 submitted tips, and sorted the rest based on the percentage of tips which contained curse words.
A discovery that the folks in Manchester, UK are the most foul-mouthed Foursquare users in the world.
Curiously enough, that No. 1 result was one of only two non-U.S.-based entries in the list of the top 20 rudest cities (the other was Melbourne, Australia). It's also notable that California managed to land seven of the top 20 spots.
