The other day, I gave myself a minor injury and almost said 'God Dammit!' I just said 'Dammit' finally.
Yes we have "fuck" and "shit" and all the rest of the bodily functional swearing but many people, mostly not very religious use, "Jesus Christ! Jesus Christ on a Crutch! Jesus H. Christ! (I don't know where the H comes from), God Damn It! Dammit! Hell etc.
I don't want to go back to "Gosh Darn it to Heck" like I used when I had small children. Or Fudgebunnies, Or Coprolite, or Drat. Okay I do use 'Drat' rather a lot. It seems like a secular swear. I also say "poot' which is a bit twee of me, but there you go.
Suggestions of secular swearing outside of the cute or insane would be appreicated.
Any thoughts of why nominally Christian people or for that matter quite Christian people swear by taking the Lord's name in vain would be fun and informative to read.
Thank you all in advance.
