    Hmm... not thinking well this afternoon (still need more coffee), but one new one comes to mind. Now that we have a little one in the house, we're trying to clean up our language. My wife has taken to using the word "shload" if the little guy is in the room. As in "I've got a shload of work to do."

    My goodness, Wayner. Whatever could that be a reference to? I'm lost.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Wayner,
    When we were little my dad used to "substitute" certain words. We often heard him say"Oh! Sugar!" of "Fudge!" Once we started using them at school he tried a little harder not to say anything at all.
    It occurred to me that no matter how bleak things might seem at times, at least I have a head. ----Stargazer

    I worked with an adult that would say any of the following:

    Holy stink!
    Stinklinks!

    Somehow that last one grossed me out way more than if he'd just said sh*t.

    Whenever we see cats kneading something, (like when they are making their bed), we say they are "making pizza".
    Iím haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.

    Whenever something gets done that we don't want to admit doing, my brother and I say that "the shoemakers elves did it" it got started one day when he was in a meeting and our supervisor wanted to know how a 100 hour job got done with no hours put on it for labor. (we did it when we were doing another job that co-insided with this one, shouldn't have been two jobs in the first place) well my bro told the super that the elves did it since they were out of work due to the shoemaker automating the factory.

    We don't really have any phrases we use, but I'm definitely gonna try to work "stinklinks" into everday language. Thanks, Wayner!

    Oh yeah, I guess we do have one. Whenever, in our family, someone pays for something, and another person wants to reimburse them for it, and they ask how much it cost, the answer is "a dollar six-ninety five." Don't ask me why...But it means "fuhgeddaboudit".
