I thought my swear filter was shit hot (I used to be a teacher) turns out it's just shit! Am trying hard not to swear in front of ds who is 20 months and copies everything I say! Just wondered what words you use instead of swearwords...

I like "sugar butties" instead of shit

Haven't come up with anything satisfying instead of fuck.

Ha ha that sounds terrible!

we use bumfluff, poopsticks, Falkirk (usually for fuck) and sweaty (for bollocks)

It's quite satisfying actually.

joannita Fri 09-Sep-11 21:21:44

I'll try it Meglet

I need to learn some too.

I dropped something in front of the DC earlier and was trying so hard not to say 'shit' that I said 'fuck'.


Oh, coconuts! Thanks to Jake and the Neverland Pirates.

That's pretty funny Bitzer!

Sugar's still a substitute for shit in my home.

There isn't anything as satisfying as fuck. When dc were small I tried to say said flick when occasion arose.

Haha! I used to over indulge on the 'F' word forgetting sometimes how quickly my dd picked things up, that was untill she repeated it.....I got my inspiration from Fifi & the flower tots, so fuck has now been replaced with 'Fiddley flower petals'!

Bollocks is now bongo's
Shit is now shish, i dont eat kebabs....
Crap is now crackers
Wanker is now winkle picker
Twat is now twot

I cant think of any more which is absurd as i use them daily!!

Titsalinabumsquash grin blush - i use this now (although my DSs are old enough to cope with this)....

Shibobbple for Shit!

Oh Flibertigibert.

Very satisfying.

Or a quick declamation, with hands raised skywards and eyes rolling backwards of "My Path Is Strewn With Cowpats From The Devils Own Satanic Herd"

Very satisfying and the situation is usually over and done with y the time you've finished.

Fiddle sticks - fuck.
Sugar - shit.
For ducks cake - for fuck sake.
Oh frig it - oh fuck it - not such a good alternative!

kellimay Fri 09-Sep-11 21:29:51

Haha, there are more....pumping pistons courtesy of Thomas! I like oh coconuts from jake & the neverland pirates too.
I had to adapt quite quickly, maybe i should stop swearing so much? lol

Shazbat substitutes for shit, Fardles for fuck. No idea where I picked these up from.

tattychicken Fri 09-Sep-11 21:36:36

'Frogs fat flaps' for fuck....what flaps I am referring to I have no idea...
