Food or Profanity
Oh Sugar! Fiddlesticks! Nuts! Shitake Mushrooms! Good grapes! Baloney! Crumbs! Holy Cow! Holy Mackerel! Hot Dog!
Using food in place of profanity goes back generations. Although I prefer to use the "big guns, real deal" words, it is rarely the appropriate place to use them when the need arises, which is often. Now, you may be thinking, 'when is it not appropriate to use profanity?' You may be thinking, 'I am an adult and I can do what I wanna.' Of course, you would be correct; but, I do believe a potty mouth should be checked at the door in certain cases.
In professional settings.
In front children, new friends and/or in church.
Those are pretty much the only places I believe. Perhaps, "Sugar!" is a fair stand in? Don't ya think? It's my favorite "Go To" food profanity.
Now, places to let the profanity fly free?
The privacy of your car. A word to the wise, be careful with this one as the person you just took to the time to clearly enunciate AS$H@LE at might just be the school principal.
In cases of injury. For me this is definitely the kitchen but also applies to moving doorways, chairs, tables and any other stray anything I inevitably will bump into at one time or another.
Anywhere you want! Who am I to tell you where you can and cannot use profanity?!
My second favorite "F" word, is an excellent "Go To" little piece of profanity. It works in all situations, even if only kept in your head. I know I went straight to the Holy Grail, Mother of ALL Mothers, but there it is, it's my favorite.
Do you have a favorite food profanity saying? Please share it in the comments section.

I’ve utilized profanity to extraordinary effect is at conferences where you are feeling you know the gathering of people enough to extricate your tie and got to create a mental puppy ear for a thought. Of all the presentations I’ve given, for the foremost part had positive feedback from the ones that carried enough energy to call for profanity and it’s been exceptionally successful in making people remember key thoughts. As with any device, it can certainly be abused and connected to the off-base group of onlookers. But you will be able cut yourself with an awesome steak cut as well. Utilize profanity with care and inside the correct setting and it's bewildering.
