    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.

    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.

    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....

    Thank you very much, ITV-1. :guffaw:

    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.

    Huh. I've never heard it used that way before, but I'm going to use it that way from now on.

    I have used "frickin" and have heard it used many times. It is quite common where I live, here in Alberta.

    Reminds me of Scarface "This town is just like a chicken, waiting to be plucked."

    Which is actually better writing than the vulgar original.

    DIE HARD "Yippee-ki-yay, Mr. Falcon!"

    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).

    After having played both Freedom Force games, I started using the exclamation, "Well peaches AND cream!" like the Alchemiss. I think I have quit saying that... maybe.

    I use 'fudge' constantly which for some reason makes people giggle.

    I don't know, but probably. I grew up hearing, "My foot", which meant "you're full of BS". No, I don't know why.

    My mother's favorite swear word was "Good Night Nurse". I never understood how she came to use it, but I've adopted it for myself, not the least because it irritates my husband. :shifty: Oh, and my daughter has begun to use it, too. :p

    From the realm of TV, Colonel Potter's various euphemisms for BS always crack me up. My personal favorite -- mule fritters! :lol:

    I'm a mild swearer. I don't usually go past "Shazbot!" or "Nerts!". When my little nephew is within earshot, I'll go with "Fishpaste!" or "Tartar sauce!" :)

    I drop the f-bomb when alone, a lot, don't swear much otherwise. But I avoid the c-word, too much confusion. How can some pleasurable be mixed with a swear word denoting vile?

    So I prefer to call the pleasurable item by an Old English word, quim. Starts with a q, ends with a mmmmm. :)

    People with kids (like myself) tend to use a lot of invented swear words. I was making up a a lot of them while watching football this Saturday! I have a need to yell something to get out my frustration, so I just say the first thing that comes to mind that isn't a real swear word. Makes me wish I could swear like Yosemite Sam sometimes.
