You forgot to add, "Baby!" Oh wait, that's not Spanish, that's Schwarzeneggerese --
That's why it's always best to quote a Muppet - in this case, Oscar the Grouch.
"Now get lost!"
Or as my Mother used to say to me as she tucked me lovingly into bed every night, "Now STFU!"
Personally I don't have a problem using "Oh my god!" or things like that mostly because it pisses off my family (it's taking the lord's name in vain, don't ya know) but also who cares? XD
Oh I am also fond of "By Odin!" or any of the normal ones with Odin replacing god.
By Jove is another.
"Jove" is Jehova, aka Yahweh, aka, god.
Jove is another name for Jupiter the Roman derivative of Zeus. Probably amounts to the same thing anyway, the dominant God in the hood.
Hmmm - I think you're right - Jupiter is known as the "Jovian" planet - my only excuse is that I'm still working on that first cup of coffee --
I am right but I think you probably are too. Jehovah could well come from Jove as the Jewish god replaced the dominant god of the area.
Actually, Jehova is a misnomer. Though Vanna White is no longer a spring chicken, she wasn't around in biblical times, so the ancient Jews were unable to buy any vowels. Yahweh was written, "YHWH." When it was first found in Jewish writing, it was thought to be "JHWH," so the big guy became known as "Jehova," later, the error was discovered, corrected, and "Yahweh" took its place.
So are you saying that Jove and Jehovah are not etymologically related?
And why were they unable to buy vowels? Vowel stores closed down? Aggressive consonants mugging people who went to the vowel store? Very odd.
