    Ok... we've gotta keep this light and clean, but...

    I got really mad last night about something, and a favorite old "curse" came to mind.
    Mine's getting a bit threadbare from overuse, so I wouldn't mind a few good ones to add to the arsenal.

    Here's mine:

    "I hope your children are just like you! ...OK... That's actually a hex. But...

    I don't curse people... I'll be reading this for ideas!

    Crazy - I mean stuff we can use in place of... standard (and non-standard)

    I like taking these and twisting them around... so, when someone is trying to manipulate me into doing something I don't have on MY agenda... I've been known to say ... "I'd rather have my armpits infested with the fleas of a thousand camels." It does tend to get the message across... but I haven't used a single off-color word, or even hinted at such.

    But I need some new ones...

    IC, you might enjoy this. It's a random Shakespearian Insult generator:

    Shakespearean Insulter

    Here are a few samples:
    Thou currish dizzy-eyed harpy!
    Thou crusty botch of nature!
    What, you egg! Young fry of treachery! (this one is actually a line from Macbeth)

    Or, if you'd prefer to construct your own, here are the lists on which the generator is based. Simply pick one word from each column, add a "Thou" at the beginning, and you're good to go.

    These are more like insults rather than curses, aren't they? Guess I'm not good at curses without my candles and broom...☺

    Here are a few....

    -I don't know what your problem is, but I'll bet it's hard to pronounce.

    -You are about as deep as your reflection in a mirror.

    -Has your career got the day off?

    -You should not be allowed to breed

    -You are depriving a village somewhere of an idiot

    -Your so dense, light must bend around you

    -Whatever kind of look you were going for, you missed.

    -If I throw a stick, will you leave?

    Can't take credit for any of them, but I've used a few...

    I also assumed you were looking for a favorite curse word. I am amazed that you have managed to never say an off color word but good for you. My oldest is like that too. He never utters profanities in a public setting but has admitted that they may slip his lips in private.

    Now Tony's grandmother knew root workers who could actually put real curses on you down here but since she is dead now and I dont like to get into those things, I wouldnt know any of those.

    It's not a curse, but something I've been known to say to my difficult child...."people like you are the reason that people like me need medication!"

    When asked about something I really would hate to do: I'd rather be trapped in a room with a dozen kids with no sleep going through the terrible twos.

    Another one I don't really use but at times wish I could: some people were dropped on their heads as children. You were clearly thrown at the wall.

    This is a little off target and I swear I quit saying this after I realized that some lunatics would actually say this to their kid and mean it, but I used to love to tell difficult child the old Bill Cosby line- "I brought you into this world, and I can take you out."

    Little did I know.

    The camels and fleas one came from M*A*S*H, I think. Klinger had a lot of great curses!

    My favourite Aussie one is "I hope your chooks turn into emus and kick your dunny down."

    "chooks" = hens.

    "dunny" = outhouse, toilet.

    A fun line I heard the other week - "Save your breath, you'll need it to inflate your next date."

    The worst curse I can think of to say to anybody is, "May you get what you deserve."
