Oh Sugar Honey Iced Tea!

I was never one to really use swear words. On occasion, when it seemed fitting, I would let some slip. But once my oldest started to talk, eventually repeating the things I was saying, I became a lot more aware and cautious of what I said. I knew she would most likely be sassy but I didn’t want her to grow up sounding like George Carlin. I started to use words and phrases that still had the feeling of a swear word but were, for the most part, G-rated.

Here are some that I use (or just really like the sound of).

Fudge – My current f-word.

Cabbages – Substitute for a c-word that is synonymous with poop.

Sugar – Substitute for the s-word.  Insert your favorite SNL Celebrity Jeopardy Sean Connery joke here.

Gunfunnit – Used locally in Hawaii (or elsewhere by people who have lived in Hawaii) and could mean any expletive you want it to mean. My husband’s co-worker says that the older you get, the more often you use it.

Shut the front door – I don’t know why, but this one usually makes me smile.

Oh sugar honey iced tea – Never noticed its use in the movie Madagascar until my husband pointed it out.

What are your favorite swear word substitutes?
