Strange swear words

Do you or anybody you know use common words as some sort of swear? For example, my dad, who does have a vocabulary of all the general swear words, will sometime say, "Well jazz!" as if it were some sort of ultimate oath.

So anyone else encounter anything like this, or is my father just a bit loony when it comes to swearing?

I say "frak" often because I'm a loser.

Re: Strange swear words

I use classical composers instead of swear words sometimes. I'll say "Schubert" instead of shit, for example.

Re: Strange swear words

I work with a Soldier who is of Chinese descent and she was teaching me cuss words in Chinese.

I was watching "Booty Call" last night starring Jamie Fox and he and another actress were cursing each other out in Chinese in a Chinese restaurant and I understood everything they were saying!

This. Also, after watching Transformers: Animated, I'm tempted to add "slag" to my vulgarity index.

A few of my friends, including one of my closest, are Chinatown Chinese. I've picked up a bit of Cantonese from them, mostly of the vulgar variety. I love the slang for masturbation, which translates literally to "beating the airplane."

That's wonderful. You're a fascinating person, TSQ you know that?

I usually say crap in a hat a lot.

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

Nah, not so much -- but I do have funny friends. The first thing I learned to say (and forgive the phonetic spelling) was "Gno lo ho soi," which means, "I'm drooling" (literally, "I am leaking mouth-water"). We used to work together in the ice cream shop where I was employed during college, and I was serving a particularly attractive male customer. In the background I heard one of my friends whisper to the other, "Hannah lo ho soi." After that I had to learn some Cantonese so I could gossip behind the customers' backs too!

I didn't know that one. Mandarin or Cantonese?

Truthfully, I don't swear much and when I do it's usually "balls" or one of the basics -- shit, fuck...

When the kids are around, I use variations on the usual: I say "corn-shucker" rather than "cocksucker" and "mother-father" rather than "mother-fucker".

Eeee...be careful with that one. A lot of people find it pretty offensive.

I thought that word was also made up for the show. (I distinctly remember Rimmer using it at least once.) If this is not the case, please accept my apologies.

Gimp is a derogatory term for some one with a (usually physical) disability.
