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 derogatory slang for some one with a (usually physical) disability.
Or in full on S&M gear like Pulp Fiction!

Re: Strange swear words

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.

Oops.

I seriously had no idea that word was real.

Re: Strange swear words

Words like jazz and Rock 'n' roll are from black dialect and refer to sex, so saying "Well, jazz!" was just a polite way of saying "Well, fuck!"

And gimp. One of the reasons I don't discuss the well known freeware image program.

Re: Strange swear words

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).

I prefer RoboCop's "mother crusher"

Although I think we have a new winner:

Re: Strange swear words

i also picked up my old assistant mangaer's habit of describing rubbish stuff as 'chaff' instead of crap. thankfully i seem to have put it down again.

i have said 'Slag' a few times...

need to start coming out with 'By the Primal Program!' or 'By the Golden Spires of Iacon!' more...

That has got to be the worst TV edit I have ever heard. Ever.

Apparently that plane doesn't fly on weekends?
