Great Caesar's Ghost!
Remember me? The G-Man?
Yes, I've been at it again...WORK!
In the car business, this time of year is known as "The Spring Market".
So blogging is sporadic at best.
Today's walk down memory lane concerns Statements of Exasperation!!
Did your Parent or Grandparent have a favorite "Outburst"?
Of course the above pictured Perry White used to scream...
"Great Caesar's Ghost"!
My Grandma Alvena Haynes used to always say...
"Lord Love a Duck!"!
My favorite outburst of frustration is...
"What the Deuce"?
In todays fast paced world of social networking, folks don't even take
the time to scream out anything, they just go....WTF?
Whatever happened to...
"Heavens to Betsy"!
"By The Jesus"!!
C'mon people, help a Brother out......

My grandmother used to say "Begorrah Bejesus" - she was Irish. ;)
My aunt's expression was always, "My cow." Yep, farm folk!
lol - my father's was always, when he was truly angry, "Jeee-sus Christ." He always drew out eh Jesus. My mother never cursed, but she would say, "What the heck?" in a way that you knew you'd better duck - lol!
ha...i have heard the duck one before...i dunno that there was a fav of my parents...my dad usually just broke something...
During my teens if I wanted to take a walk on the wide side ... I would shout out 'well, I'll be dipped!'
My grandmother would exclaim in Swedish something that sounded like 'Yeezoose ee himmell!' Which I always translated as Jesus in Heaven. My husband's favorite exclamation(of the non cussing variety) he stole from WC Fields, 'Good Godfrey Daniels!' You have to say it like Fields to make it work, though.
i had a friend whose mother used to exclaim, "cheese and crackers!"
heavens to mergatroid!
Eeegads, boy howdy, hoo boy, hooo weee,
and not so much an exclamation, but I used to hear: That dog'll hunt
When Im not yelling WTF which at current stages Im trying really hard not to do any more I will now say "I'm working on it" Now it doesnt always fit the timing of some angry phrases but like I said "Im working on it!
My husband who is quite old fashioned used to shock people with things like "Gracious!" That was a big conversation stopper on the Lower East Side.
