101 non-swear words

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

101 non-swear words

Post: #105717 Brij

I've noticed a couple of brilliant non-swear words on the forum today, has anyone got any others?

The ones I saw were:

1. Bandstands
2. Barstewards

And my flatmate and I have taken to saying this one recently after seeing yesterday's news:

3. Farc (as in, Farc, the leader died!)

I was also brought up to say this one instead of the normal, four letter word for... passing wind (also an f-word), which I was taught was a swear word

4. Poof-off (the "poof" is pronounced to rhyme with "hoof")

Anyone got any others? They really make me chuckle when I read the forum!

My Mum, who never swore, was once heard to say 'buggasodswine' so it's remained in use as a single word :oops:

And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
