    I like a nice flat, "Right..." to some of the crazier things I hear at work.

    When I had this enormous, excitable chocolate Lab, I'd occasionally blurt out an "Easy Chewie!" when he'd get nutty.

    I frequently use: "Alons-y!, "Don't judge me by my underwear", "Don't get your knickers in a twist", and "Smooth as sandpaper." There was another one, but it has slipped my mind.

    "Yeah, whatever" is what I've been using when I'm super-mad. Along with; "We're going to get pissed (drunk) and play Twister(tm)"

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    Me too. To toss in another recent Community influence: When something particularly severe happened, I used to say, "Brutal." Now, I've tweaked it into "Brutalitops!" (After Senor Chang's D&D character's name in "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.")

    I used to use "Fantastic!" all the time before the 9th Doctor took it as his catchphrase. After that, I kinda gave it up. (I actually got it from the way David Warner's character said it in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze.)

    Sometimes I try to say "Sweet Jesus!" the way Zephram Cochrane did in Star Trek: First Contact.

    "Holy Kraft Cheese & Craparoni!"

    "Yeshua Messiah!" (It's a way to say "Jesus Christ!" without offending most people. But then, since I'm swearing using his actual Hebrew name instead of the usual Greek perversion, I suspect I may be getting into more trouble with The Big Guy that way.;))

    If someone is tripping or dropping something or being clumsy or in danger of causing some kind of accident, I shout, "Easy there, Chester!"

    I sometimes dismiss something as being irrelevant by shouting, "Fred Rogers is a dead white man!" This one has a kinda convoluted origin story. I was watching an episode of Tavis Smiley where he was interviewing Levar Burton. He called Burton "the king of PBS." Burton demurred, "I don't know. Fred Rogers is still up there." Smiley immediately shot back, "But Fred Rogers isn't a black man!" Sitting at home, I thought, "Either way, Fred Rogers is dead." Thus: "Fred Rogers is a dead white man!"
