What are some

What are some insults or exclamations you use without actually swearing? Whether you mean what you say or you're just being silly doesn't mattter :) Here['s some of mine (and yup, some taken out of books)


-Gods of Olympus!!

-Holy Hephestus

-Knowledge has been chasing you for awhile, but you are always ahead of it

-Annoying furball

-Your garden is wilting and your cucumbers are soft

-I've met rocks smarter then you

I hope this is a-okay @Admins :I 

As always, comments will be screened and edited, if necessary, before posting.

Mine are basically all book quotes...

-What the Helheim


-Spindiddly (does that count?)

-Oh my gosh/Oh gods (though to be fair, I do not believe in the Jewish god despite being Jewish. Nah, I'm pretty sure I believe in the Greek gods, seeing as I've prayed to them many times, including 3, maybe 4 times today)

-Frog-faced blob of camel spit

-Three moons

-I swear on the river styx (this is only an occasional this, as this is a very serious promise)

-instead of the opposite of heaven/fire bad place, I say Tartarus

Wait I just realized I'm allowed to list ones that aren't from books... let's see do I have any of those?


yeah I can't think of any

okay that's it then ig

thank you

Mine are mostly food-based, so... let's-a go!

-You sound like Mario 'bout to projectile vomit all over Toad (context: I used this ONE TIME on my not-friend Isaac... his best friend [my BFF's brother] laughed at that)

-Stinkin'piece of zuchinni bread

-Mushroom head (Isaac had this weird hairstyle where he shaved the sides of his head, and he looked like a mushroom...)

Can't really think of anymore, but maybe in the near future...

OH MY GOSH I USE MUSHROOMHEAD~ my best friend and I came up with it a while ago to describe extremely annoying people (specifically the kind of middle schooler who swears a whole lot and jokes about stuff they shouldn't and is generally very obnoxious, you know the ones) and I've been using it ever since

Also flattened discount artichoke, I got it from a book by Roshani Chokshi

"You pilfer!" Pilfer was a vocabulary word in my English class once, and for some reason my friends just decided it was a noun and a good all-around insult? This process was probably speeded along by me yelling at them every time they used it that it's a verb not a noun XD

Aaand I can't think of any more rn

Speckle says <atado> Avocado? You want avocados? I don't have any...

I literally spent forever copying down the best Shakespeare insults in a notebook somewhere. XD I love those

- gosh diggidy dang darn it

- your face is a third derivative (I only used this once I swear in a moment of subpar cognitive skills)


and I've been meaning to use two I found in Les Mis but I've never got around to it:

- zounds!

- by the big slippers of big slipperdom (direct quote. it's amazing)

screaming words like WORM or WRETCH over and over again tend to work for me.

i swear very rarely, it takes away the meaning of a word if you use it too often.

Here are some of my favorites:

-Bootless worm! (Got that one from a Shakespearean insult generator in 7th grade and it's served me well)

-Frogbutts (I started to say a real swear in the presence of one of my friends who doesn't like swears and corrected to this and pretended it was what I meant to say all along. Nobody was fooled but my friend appreciated the sentiment)


Umm I promise I do have some more creative swears I just can't remember them

Hmm.. well, I like to say "ach crivens" (or whatever it was) just for fun ofc! And then there's always "sanct" though I don't use that one... I mostly just say "ack" or "blech" or "ugh" or *vague animal noises* really

I don't have many but I have been using "Fantastic!" in a British accent as an exclamation of joy (as a reference to Doctor who's ninth doctor, he's my favorite)
