The milder epithets

So, what do you say when the situation doesn't warrant a good rattlin' swear word, or you are around little ones, or if you're just not the type to curse?

Some of my favorites:

Rats!
Harpo, Crappo, & Zeppo

When I need to curse in front of a friend's children, a lot of sputtering and stammering is usually involved. Sometimes followed by an apology, which can be ruined by starting off ... "Oh shit, I'm sorry I said *really bad word*."

Under ordinary circumstances, I embarass sailors.

As a long time reader of Elfquest, I have been known to resort to "puckernuts" on occasion. Rare occasion. I don't usually use the made up bad words from SciFi channel like my friends do. Never really got into that one with the blue not quite chick and the farting alien. My friends say "Frill" a lot.

"nammit". I have a friend who uses this as his catchphrase and is constantly finding new and wonderful uses for it. He got me saying it before my son was even born and it's served me well. Correct pronunciation requires that you do it in either a poor impression of Cartman or a low rumbling, maybe how it would be said could King Kong say it.

I use "Feh!" a lot. Have also been known to tell someone to "Blank off."

In typed things like IMs it's "carp" and "$#!T".

I follow Eugene Levy's example. When I forget myself and begin to say the Eff word, I turn it into "FUCKeddaboudit"

Thank you. See, I told you I didn't watch it much!

For some reason, perhaps I've had a ministroke or somesuch, I have caught myself saying "Golly Gosh." I am not sure what has motivated this.
