    Way back, a (then) young lady told me that during her exchange student stay in USA she got somebody to back off in a hurry by uttering the Finnish version of "I love you", using a sharp tone.

    Instead of flipping the bird while driving, I just grip the steering till my knuckles go white. I'm seeing too many people getting shot at in road rage incidents. Too much of that "Taking care of things, like we did in the days" nonsense. For words, I like what Kristen Bell uses in the comedy series "The Good Place"...You can't swear in heaven, so it comes out as Holy Shirtballs, and What the Fork...or just Oh Snap!

    In my classroom I always exclaimed, "Oh, s-s-s-s-sugar cookies!" Also my favorite contradictory cuss, "Oh, prune juice!"



    Edit: Tintin fan from 'way back, here. I'm googling up the complete set, might order one. Re-edit: I'm reading the Wikipedia article about Herge', the Tintin author. I'd never realized how very political his works were. Makes sense in retrospect.

    Lol. Too many good ones. I slipped on the ice the other day and found myself shouting “Jon Bon Jovi!”....a slight improvement over the usual.

    I used to drive a small school bus up in the hills here in Ireland.
    Cursing is common here and not considered much of an issue, but I still kept the older kids from turning the air blue as much as possible as there were several 4 year olds on the bus and I figured their parents would prefer they not become proficient in swearing quite so soon. Maybe they didn't care, but still...
    Anyway, one day l had to stop quickly on a corner to avoid a cow and was about to let out a blast myself but I just caught myself... and said 'hecky darn doodoos!' instead.
    Stunned silence from the kids then an explosion of hilarity. The most lame and ridiculous curse they'd ever heard.
