Alternatives to Bad Words

It's a natural reaction to use some sort of word or phrase when something bad happens. However, instead of using a bad word, you can use one of these alternatives instead!
  1. Dang
  2. Darn
  3. Drat
  4. Crud
  5. Crudnits
  6. Pooh
  7. Shucks
  8. Shoot
  9. Sugar
  10. Shisnicks
  11. Shiitake mushrooms
  12. Schnitzel
  13. Shingles
  14. Rats
  15. Fudge
  16. Freak
  17. Frig
  18. Flip
  19. Falafel
  20. Fadoodle
  21. Frizzle
  22. Mamma mia
  23. Oh snap
You can also make up your own expressions, like "oh, hoochie-coochie" or "ah, cakepop." A friend of Talia Weisberg, the creator of Bleep!, made up shisnicks, and Weisberg's mother made up fadoodle. Weisberg herself often uses crud and frig.
