Linguists tell as that hundreds of new words are added to the English language every year. I think it is now our turn to do our part in enriching the English lexicon. Please post your favorite alternative swear words hear, and please keep it clean!

In honor of our nation's attempts at economic recovery, I hereby declare TARP to be a new swear word! I recommend using it in the following contexts:
You son of a TARP!
Ewww, I just stepped in a big pile of TARP!
TARP OFF!
TARP IT!
I think you get the spirit of it!:)
Does the Cadbury Bunny realy lay those eggs? If so, does anyone know where I can get one?

You mean like.....what a bunch of Pelosi!!?:)
We've got nothing to fear...but fear itself?
Not pain, not failure, not fatal tragedy?
Not the faulty units in this mad machinery?
Not the broken contacts in emotional chemistry?

Uffda? Could you use that in a sentence for me?
Is it kind of like: What a bunch of Pelosi! You guys are TARPing the uffda out of me!
Good, I like it!

I used to live in Pahrump, Nevada. "Pahrump IT!" quickly became a favorite of most of my mission companions!

FIDDLESTICKS!

In all caps because I'm usually yelling it, after dropping something on my foot.

Also, farfenuggen. Not sure how to spell it. Farf-en-nuggen.

In a side note. When my brother was three he learned some bad words and thought it was awesome to yell them as loud as possible. Having him think fiddle sticks was a bad word, the worst of them all, was very helpful while grocery shopping.

Russian composers' names lend themselves well as alternative swear words. My favorite is Schostacovich. You just yell out the name, it sounds great. SCHOSTACOVICH!!

Or how 'bout Funk & Wagnalls (as in the publishing company). You gotta really emphasize the Funk. AH, FUNK n WAGNALL!

When I was in boot camp, I had a drill sergeant who called us all "huckapucks". I found that amusing.

Edit: Speaking of political expletives, I hereby propose we banish the word "Cheney" from the American English vernacular now that he no longer matters.

LOL.... Anyone watch Battlestar Gallactica. They have a whole list of alternate swear words. The most often used in the series is "frack"....

To me... it doesn't matter which word you use its still swearing. Yes, I swear on occassion. Oh Heck, Dang, Dang it, H&D, . . . When my kids were young H&D got them moving real fast. They knew Mom was at the end of her rope when she said "H AND D!!!" :eek:

EDIT: I've only heard my husband swear twice in 34 years (I'm including the two years we dated.) He tells the story of going with the neighbor (Sheep Rancher) to buy some lambs. The rancher they were visiting couldn't say a single sentence without inserting a swear word. It was really overwhelming. The man my husband was with quietly told the boys (his son and my husband) that some people just didn't know better. That's all he said. It made a big impression on my husband and he just doesn't swear. His coworkers and employees over the years eventually ask me if he ever swears at home, so I'm guessing he doesn't swear at work either. :D

my kids were watching this cartoon with these circus clowns that were preparing for a picnic and the mom just knew she was forgetting something and then she remembers and exclaims "oh, candy apples!" i was in the other room and heard it and thought the way she said it that it sounded like an alternate to swearing. i thought it was pretty funny, keep saying i'm going to use it but never remember when the opportunity comes. lol

i don't have problems, i have issues
problems can be fixed, issues you just deal with

i'm not sure that she's such a wonderful rolemodel, but i like the way that hannah montana says, "oh, sweet nibblets!" instead of swearing. it sounds funny and tasty at the same time!

Let’s see, what are some of the ones we have used in the past…

Exclamatory Oaths:

Oh my stars and garters!
That frosts my cake/case!
Darn it all!
Dag nabbit!
Dog gone it! (which turns into “Dog Vomit”) which can also be said, “Dog gone it all!”
Oh my goodness!
Oh my golly gosh!
Frell off! (from Farscape – used much like the “F” word)
POed (for being angry) used as – “He got me so POed!”
Fornication! (also used like the “F” word)
Screw it! (which I thought was one of the worst swears growing up)


Mild Oaths:
I feel blargley today.

Some of the kids at my daughter's elementary school have taken to using the word "Frack" from the Battlestar Galactica show.
Jesus said, "The first in importance is, love the Lord God.'
And here is the second: 'Love others as well as you love yourself.'
There is no other commandment that ranks with these."

This thread just reminded me of a fast food chain back East called Cluck-U Chicken. Their catchphrase: "Can I take your cluckin' order?"

Frell, I remember that one! We almost named our daughter Moya, after the ship on that show. Ok, not after the ship, but like the ship. We're dorks;)
