message 1: by Dennis (new)

Dennis Meredith (dennismeredith) Dennis Meredith is writing a science thriller, the Tasty Bomb [www.TastyBomb.com] in which an eccentric main character, having been reprimanded for her foul mouth, has decided to employ non-curse words in her vocabulary as substitutes. The "Curse word" Challenge: come up with words whose sound makes them satisfying curses in times of anger or frustration. Examples:
Fricassee!
Pork chop!
Chopstick!

A.C. Melody (acmelody) | 8 comments Mother Trucker is one I remember. The TV show "The Good Place" has funny ones like "fork/forking" "sonofabench" and "bullshirt" so it can be fun to have your character just get creative with similar sounding words.

Dennis Meredith (dennismeredith) I love "The Good Place" they do indeed use the most creative curses.

Thank everyone for you help.
