I think asshole may be the most universal "bad" word there is.

And everyone has an asshole. Unless you have some weird medical condition or something.

It's a cultural bonding of using ideas counter to their original and co-current insult intending ways.

Cocksucker is fun to say when you're angry, just like cunt or Jesus Christ. But I've tried to stop myself from using it, because I don't want to imply that engaging in fellatio is in and of itself a pejorative. It's not a curse word that meshes well with an otherwise sex-positive outlook. My best friend is gay, but we also both love Louis CK and his take on it.

I usually do it myself.

Actually that's not correct. Usually would imply that there are exceptions.

Edwin Stanley "Nigger" Brown (1898–1972)

Brown was an Australian rugby league footballer of the 1910s and 1920s. A Queensland state and Australian international representative centre he played club football in Toowoomba. Brown, an Anglo-Australian was nicknamed "Nigger" because of the wide use of the "Nigger Brown" variety of Kiwi shoe polish at the time.

Note the replacement name (insert) below the main image.

In Toowoomba, they had a grandstand called the E. S. "Nigger" Brown Stand, named in honour of Brown. In 2002, a lawsuit was brought before one of Australia’s highest courts to have the named changed—by an Aboriginal activist, Stephen Hagan. The judge who heard the case ruled the stand's name could remain as it was not offensive. Then in 2003, the United Nations ruled the grandstand's name should be changed. Australia’s federal government ignored the United Nations ruling. When the stand became a public hazard due to neglect, it was demolished, and in 2009 the Toowomba Sports Ground Inc. agreed not to use "Nigger Brown" in any new tributes.
