Fan n y in US English usually refers to one's rear end.
Fan n y in UK English refers to female genitalia.

Do NOT tell your English friends you like to pat your wife on the Fan n y.

I once had a little book explaining French that you didn't learn in high school. One section was a restaurant menu translated to English. Some things I remember are
~ dribbling snot omelet (undercooked eggs)
~ nun's farts (cinnamon rolls)
~ bleeding meat (They like meat rare, so this is an option.)

Around here we have Indian, no bad words at all, and a dialect of Spanish for every town. It gets to where you can't speak the name of your favorite beer outside the bar, and you better be careful until you find out what they call eggs in public.
