Favorite Not-Dirty Word
« on: July 20, 2012, 10:38:56 AM »
I think we all find ourselves in situations where the most natural of reactions is too great for the ears around us.  So sometimes you need to censor yourself.

My phrases of choice when I need to remain somewhat professional around little ears are:

"Oh... expletives!"
"Uh!  Profanity!  Lots of profanity!"
"Sugar ants!"
"Piece of work machine!"

"So that just happened." (Alternatively: "Or that could happen," depending on which suits the context of events better.)

"I'm just saying"
"Has anyone seen Gloria Estefan lately?"
"Mother pus bucket"
"Gorramit"

But, I really like your "Profanity!  Lots and lots of profanity!" Star.  I'm going to remember that one. ;-)

Well, since English isn't my native language, I'll have to translate. But some of them don't really translate very well.

If I hurt myself ( I can sometimes be a little dramatic. ):

"Pain! Indescribable pain!"
"Why!?" or "Why me!?"

The one I generally use to express annoyance or frustration is ... well, it's basically the color black, in adjective form. Normally - that is if I don't have to censor myself - I'll add a "hell" at the end.

I swear in Klingon. It's a wonderful language for swearing, really lets you get oomph into the words, and no one is likely to take offense unless you translate for them. :)

I use that one. too ♥ Only a true nerd uses such a dirty word, eh?
I also use 'fork', and I've used it so much, it basically replaced the more dirty word.

The rest of the cursewords I use are mangled up Dutch curses, so I think I can't really entertain you with those, sorry.

I have envy written all over my face, right now.

Having gone all the way to Moscow, with the Tsar and his army retreating before him, Napoleon is supposed to have exclaimed this when he got word that the city around him was burning, set alight by the Russians themselves:

"What an astonishing decision! This is one that couldn't be calculated!"

I read the story of Napoleon's great army in a book Episodes from History when I was a little kid, and ever since I've been using that sort of half-detached line - "This is one that couldn't be calculated!" as a stock comment either, in irony, for things that you could obviously see coming long before they happened, or for when something totally unexpected does happen.

When I'm annoyed with someone, I tell them to go defenestrate themselves.

No self respecting Klingon lunch is simply going to obey orders. You have to beat it into submission first :) Klingons conquer all that they desire ... including lunch. Why else would it be served live?

Also, I tend to say 'shiza' more than I should (still technically a dirty word, just not in english).

A German friend of mine once told me that she used 'Scheibenhonig' (lit. 'slice of honey') in place of Scheiss (lit. - well, you know.)
