      What is the point of using words of exasperation that gets as close to swearing as possible? So close that a listener would have a hard time telling that you have NOT dropped the f bomb for example.

      Compromising erodes character! Over time you stop switching a few letters and just say the great naughty. Why not just say it when you get so close EVERYONE KNOWS the expression MEANS the f bomb. SCI FI channels frack and frill.

      It is INSANE to say a bad word has to end in uck to be UNEXCEPTABLE. Letters and sounds mean only what value they are given. We all know the meaning of some of the above replacements. Intent is long been convictable in law. You conspire to murder you go to jail whether or not death follows as planned.

      Do we want to teach a child it is ok to get as close to disobeying and rebelling as they can? You then allow them to foster a desire to do what is as wrong as they can get away with instead doing they best they can do.

      Like TV'S censors no longer bleep entire swear words so the word is gone they just bleep the last letter so you KNOW WHAT word was said. What's the point of it? It is like licking a turd instead of eating it is not so bad. REALLY???????

      And OMG, gosh, gee, or ANY THING that REPLACES taking the LORD'S name in vain keeps the wicked intent in the heart. Dang and darn still intends to condemn someone to eternity in tormented fire. I say cotton picking. Something is as irritating as picking cotton from the plant and getting scratched or pierced by its thorns. Cheese and rice is so obvious as a replacement of the precious name of the Savior "Jesus Christ". I have zero tolerance to blasphemy!

      Our tongue is like a gage or sensor to our soul. If we are hateful, bitter, or dishonest our words will let everyone know the darkness of our soul.

      "Well I say it like it is!" -or- "I have A RIGHT to speak freely!"

      Yes mankind affords each other great latitude to be as immoral as we can invent new laws to be. [Sexual immorality is not even considered wrong anymore. And murder is legal as long as we only kill life's most fragile beings. We call these beings, zygotes, embryos or just fetal TISSUE and sell it as a lucrative product that the womb produces. Beauty creams from our dead unborn. As morals spiral downward men create more laws to PROTECT THE RIGHTS of the criminal who has gone past societies weakening eroding boundaries. Our legal system is geared to GET THE GUILTY OFF more than to do actual justice.

      I used to have quite a foul mouth. My rationalization was, well I am an army wife so I should talk as foul as the average G.I. I hated myself and hated others so I did not care what damage my tongue did.

      Check your INTENT before you speak. Is the words at the tip of my tongue 1) helpful? 2) encouraging? 3) important to be heard? 4) pure and true?

      Pain can be expressed with OUCH! Frustration as "How FRUSTRATING"!

      If our words were so important that others desperately were in need of them we all would be telepathic. I for one am so very thankful people do not know the sludge that can run through my idle mind. It can get very YUCKY! How could we possibly like others if we knew their thoughts? So why do we speak TMI so freely and spew our thought sludge? Why do we want to objectify and discourage or down right destroy others quality of life?

      The power of Life and death our in the tongue. We can heal and help or we can so destroy that someone loathes their next breath.

      We now try to teach our children NOT TO BULLY but let them spend hours in front of bullying lessons on TV. We desensitize them to violence through media and games.

      Technology gives more opportunities to practice and perfect every harmful and destructive vice. Remember this wise phrase of truth. Garbage IN! Garbage OUT!!!!!

      I will continue to look for silly MEANINGLESS phrases to suggest to my first graders to use. GREAT HORNY TOADS! or LEAPING LIZZARDS cannot be confused with swear words. Yes I might sound like Yosemite Sam but that's OK. I do not want a child punished because they repeated something I said. And HOW DO YOU justly punish a child who is just copy what they hear? Double standards are unjust! I can cuss but you can't??

      It is the INTENT not the sounds and letters. If your intent to let the hate/uglies/vileness out and to spread your mood to infect others YOU ARE WRONG regardless of the sounds and letters used.

      It is NOT strong character to disguise poison as something less noxious. It is SRENGTH of character to DEAL WITH IT peaceably. Or even to let tears flow rather than let the filth flow. Tears are honest.

      If lusting about a woman is the same as having sex with her, and hating someone is the same as murdering him, what is it when you exclaim a "sanitized" version of a swear word to express frustration? As a Christian, I find it incredibly hypocritical that so many fellow believers stand in judgment of their brothers for uttering "taboo" words and then turn around and say things like "cheesy rice." It's puzzling.

      This list is hilarious! I say "shoot" or "sugar" and "Maple Syrup" (like Canada from Hetalia Axis Powers). Sometimes I quote the BFG (e.g. filthy fizzwiggler, flush-bunking, scrotty, bootboggler, crodwallop etc). Here are some I came up with off the top of my head:

      - Sheesh kebabs

      - Son of a Witch!

      - Dingbat - for "d***head"

      - Dingle-hopper

      - Bleep, bleep it - replaces the F-Bomb

      - Oh woe! (What On Earth)

      - Holy Fudge-nuts

      - Flipping frogs

      - Mother-Puffin - instead of 'motherf***'

      - Oh my Land! (from Wreck-It Ralph)

      - Oh bother and blow it!

      - Drat it!

      - Rat-bag

      - Wicked Witch - a 'b***' or any spiteful person

      - Fiddlesticks

      - Go fly a kite! - "go away"

      You're still expressing the idea of anger, or of being upset. That's what profanity is for. Somehow saying a word that sounds KIND OF like it but ISN'T QUITE the actual word, is okay. Just say the actual word, you're still conveying the idea of the word. After all, it's just a word. A certain combination of vowels and consonants, that, if read or typed uncensored, according to some, will conjure the wrath of God. It's just stupid.

      Ha! Great list. Definitely a funny click. I struggled to make the switch when I taught small children. Sometimes I would pause with my mouth open so I could make sure of what I was about to say.

      Friends who knew me as a teen think it is hilarious to hear me come out with the ones I use from your list: Fiddlesticks! Crikey! Phooey!

      One I borrowed from my English sister-in-law:

      "Pants!" (underwear)

      This is so great. I made my son copy a definition out of the dictionary if he cussed when he was little. I told him he sounded ignorant using 4 letter words and that he couldn't actually be uninformed.So, he had to learn a word if he used one. If he used multiple words, he could copy the dictionary all day. He is a smart kid and figured out that he did not want to copy that whole book and stopped after the first time. But, I bet he would have liked your list of suggestions a lot better.

      Oh how I need this right now, my son is catching on to my horrible bad language... This was absolutely the best way to start my day. I have been using the "go fly a kite" quite a bit, yet then my son starts literally looking for a kite to fly, oh well.

      I take it you have read that book that guy wrote for adults? Bleep the Bleep Up and go to bed? I haven't seen it yet, but I've heard about it. Sounds funny. However, I will say that I have never said that to my kids. I think it's awful when parents really say that to their children. I'm sure it happens all the time. I've been happy to grow up in a good environment and set the same standards for my children. I've recently written a few hubs on raising children. I've raised four of them, and they're still growing. They'll always be my babies, even once they're all grown up and left the nest. Still feeding them worms right now. Just kidding.
