Godamn Euphemisms!

My favorite one: “Consarn it!” - Granpappy Amos McCoy (Walter Brennan)

Here it is hidden in a phrase along with another subsitute word:

GOT down offa my horse, and stepped in a pile of shifting sand!” - anon.

I know y’all must have some faves…


Goldurn Euphemisms, surely? Goddamn is a little too explicit for this trope.

My favourites are from those American 'tween-wars novels, where such fossilised expressions as Lawks a-Mercy! and Lan-sakes! occurred.

Well, I was trying to be clever. I guess I could have written “Euphemisms for ‘Godamn’”.

“Goldurn” is good though! :wink:


My dad used to say, ‘Cheese and crackers got all muddy!’

Well, spit! I don’t have another farking thing to add, not after I fudged this up as badly as I have.

Situation normal, all fouled up! Doggone it!

W. C. Fields was famous for pushing the envelope of what he could say in his films. My favorite was “Godfrey Daniel!”

And if that doesn’t qualify, y’all can just go punk yourselves. :smiley:

Dag nabbit! (Another Walter Brennan favourite).


Instead of Jesus Chirst, people here say “Cheese and Rice.”

I’ve always wondered what Jesus Christ Superstar lyricist Tim RICE thinks of that.


Shut the fffffffront door!

Gosh dang it you son of a bird, this is a tough one! :slight_smile:

I’ve always been partial to “Ye gads!” and “Gadzooks!” That said, I rarely have the restraint to use them…

That reminds me of another dad-ism: ‘Ye gods, and little fishes!’

My friends Mom while she was with my friend and granddaughter:

Oh fuckrying out loud!

Gorram fracking sci-fi euphemisms!

movingfinger - I saw a televised version of a Tarantino movie (Jackie Brown, I think it was) in which practically every line out of Samuel L. Jackson’s mouth included a variation on “monkey licker,” “melon sucker,” and so on.
