    What do you say when you really want to curse but can't?

    Do you have a personal "swear" word to vent your feelings?

    I sometimes say "dang," and I picked up "cheese and crackers" and "cheese and rice" from my grandmother who I never heard utter a real swear word.

      "Cheese and rice" is a new one on me, actually sounds kind of rude when said quickly. I bet some people do a double take! Interesting.

      haha my mom says cheese and crackers. just recently my niece was cooking and something happened in the kitchen and she said "I curse you in the name of pasta."  That's my new catchphrase-you can use that for a small fee. teehee

    I simply replace the profanity with ridiculous phrases like horse-radish, H-E-double hockey sticks, "fun to you too" or my favorite, yippie Kiy yeah (to you) mother hubbard...

    I replace a certain word that starts with "F" around my kids with variations of "Fudge." So you'll hear me say "mustard fudger," "fudgin'," "fudgebag," etc.

      You might be on to something with "mustard fudge(r). If they can make bacon brownies?

      I use fudge as well. Can be quite satisfying.

    Bar steward is my favourite but I never swear around children although it can be quite challenging as I work in schools and colleges.

    This reminds me of a former co-worker of mine. She was a very prim lady, and never swore, but one day she was very frustrated with her computer and she burst out with "Pardon my language, but son of a beehive." The rest of us all laughed and told her she doesn't have to ask for pardon for that kind of language.

    "Fiddlesticks!" but then I'm over 50.  Having spent my adult life around soldiers and newspaper people, I usually just let the blue vocabulary rip!

      I've never been sure if frickin is offensive to some people or not, but if you say it, I'm sure it's fine!

    I make up fun and interesting variations on the words.   Just a few examples...

    Son of a biscuit eater.
    Dag-gum-it.
    Mother hell.

    Silly things like that.  Growing up in the south you learn interesting ways of saying things while still being a polite southern lady.

    I sometimes like to use the "elongated and drawn-out" painful gasps that Peter Griffin uses whenever he trips on something. If that doesn't fit the situation, my fallback is usually "BUGGER!" or "BOLLOCKS!". On the rare occasion I will use the names of food (ie "AW MUFFINS!" or "SONUVACAKE!").
