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.
It's also very Elliotish from Scrubs

For me, the main fake ones are usually frak, frick, goramm it or frell me dead. I may even have used abso-fragging-lutely once or twice

-- Frag. Picked that up as an fuck-alt owing to being around a few military people that used to use it that way "Frag you, frag me, frag off..."

-- Frak and Frell (yeah I'm a geek )

-- Slag ( okay a big geek )

I said, "it's short for frapppachino and I don't like coffee."

Re: Strange swear words

I like "frak."

I also sometimes use "fark" and "flakk." It should not surprise you that these are Cardassian swear words (at least in DS9 #6, Betrayal). I have also been known to (NOT in anyone else's hearing) use a few swear words I invented in my own version of the Cardassian language...though one has the "fortunate" side effect of sounding something like "hack it," which often fits my mood when a machine at work has been acting up.

But one I've heard only twice in my life--from my great-grandmother, and also from one of my co-workers, is "Oh, foot." Is that just a Southernism or something?

Re: Strange swear words

One that has reached mainstream UK audiences since the mid-90s has been "feck". Interestingly, it has traditionally been a verb of Irish origin, meaning to steal or throw, and also has origins in Scots English meaning something of value (hence the term "feckless").

Of course, a certain 90s sitcom about Irish priests has popularised it more as an interjection and euphemism for a certain other F-word ("The BAAD F-word... worse than 'feck'" ).

Not one that I've ever heard here in Texas.

I've found myself using that one a lot aafter ODing on nu BSG as I'd missed the first run. The same thing happened when I watched season three of Dexter, I found myself becoming the most hispanic white man in Glasgow.

Frak is also a good way of reducing the amount of fucks - and occasionally theres a motherfudger thrown in as I try not to swear at work.

On the TV edits, I quite like the whole Funking deal in Sean od the Dead. And Prink.

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 swear in Italian too, but that's not a big feat for me.

Seriously, I swear in other languages too. Nothing too fancy (English, German, Greek, a bit of Japanese). My favourite are German scheisse, Japanese kuso and baka, Greek malaka. Spanish swear words are fun, but too similar to Italian for me to use in public.

I'm not too fond of invented swear words. For some reason, I can't use them seriously.

Re: Strange swear words

I tend to soak up odd words, the odder the better; then end up using them without thinking about it. Ficitonal, real, archaic doesn't matter; if it's something you won't hear in every day convo, it end up in my vocabulary.

Re: Strange swear words

I've started using 'frak' a lot more since watching nuBSG.

A wierd phrase I've accidentally started saying is 'Well frak me sideways, and paint me a grey turkey'.

Don't ask, I don't know why either....

And of course, "Can I get any of you [cocks] a drink?"

Thank you very much, ITV-1.

An alternate F word I use is 'Flip'

'Oh Hushpuppies.' is one I've used a bit too. People know I'm serious when I really swear.
