Oddly enough, the "fake" phrase I tend to use most is "frickin...frickin frik." Which as far as I know isn't actually a real fake swear, it's just something Nathan Fillion said once on the Firefly blooper reel.

Yosemite Sam always used to mutter, "Frikka-frakka frakken-frakka brakka-brakken..."

Colonel Potter's various euphemisms for BS always crack me up. My personal favorite -- mule fritters!
I prefer "Horse hockey!"

Although I think my favorite made up (or possibly not made up) swear word is Scotty's...

"BORGAS FRAT!"

Re: Strange swear words

Not that unusual, but strange. The term "asshat". Truly a wonderful insult. I got it from NYC folk, where the insults are far more evolved than one might think. Although, I suspect a British origin of "asshat". It's just so refined.

I'll swear in Italian, but that's about as strange as I get (I'm trying to expand that to French, German, and Spanish, but I haven't yet - except for the German, which is too obvious to use in public anyway).
And, of course, Belgium.

Nah, that one's American. An "ass" is a donkey over here, and I've never heard of an "arsehat". Oh, and have you seen the typical Brit recently? I wouldn't call us "refined".

I first heard it from an Australian. I used it joking with an English mate many moons ago and told me the Scots have the most innovative insults.

All these years later, I've heard it used everywhere which has ripped out the joy.

If 'gimp' is an offensive word, yet Red Dwarf got away with using it, that word must have a different meaning in the UK. Kind of like words like "fag" and "faggot" which are obviously vicious slurs in the US but in the UK they mean something completely unrelated (fag = cigarette; faggot = some kind of food item made from meatballs).
No - it means the same thing in Britain, but we're more relaxed about offensive humour I guess.

Anything from Red Dwarf, like smeg, gimboid, gimp, etc.

Also 'doom on you'. (Vietnamese, I think.. do ma nhieu = 'go fuck yourself')
That's hilarious. Anyone seen Ice Age? Remember the scene when the dodos were chanting "Doom on you! Doom on you!"? I wonder if the writer knew Vietnamese.

I usually say crap in a hat a lot.
When I was growing up, my mother used to say "take a shit in your hat and wear it!" a lot.

My mother has an interesting vocabulary. I've often said that she could embarrass a drill sergeant.

My grandmother says funny things like that. I recall her babysitting my baby sister and I, and changing her diaper announcing, "That smell could knock a buzzard off a shit-wagon!" She is also often heard to encourage me with the words, "Don't worry, you are the type of girl who can be buried in shit and come up with a rose in her teeth."
