I used to "invent" my own expressions and insults so I woudn't get in trouble for swearing. I once called a kid at school a 'Wild Shamrock' and I would say "What the peas?" to express confusion or "Oh, Tetris!" to express frustration or disgust.

I used to think gay was a very bad curse word. Then one day I read a book that said it(meaning happy of course) and I told my sister and she played along with me and told me that was the most inappropriate picture book there ever was.
I still don't like to say gay, even though it isn't a curse word.

When I was about 6 I was in the back garden and my Mum tripped over, I laughed and said 'Your such a twat', my mum belted
me for that and I didn't understand why at the time.

I thought Twit and Twat meant the same thing.

My mom sewed lots of my clothes and the sewing machine didn't always cooperate. She called the bobbin "a bitch". Needless to say I gave my 4-H leader quite a surprise when I correcteed her!

My dad doesn't swear in front of us - will still take me to task for saying "damn". When I was little and he got mad at other drivers, he'd pound the steering wheel and say "idiot, idiot, idiot!". so of course I thought it was a terrible swear word.

When I was very little, about two or three, I was in a home day care. The lady who owned it had her kids help out a bit. Their son, Justin, who was twelve at the time was playing with me once and he was probably teaching me new words. He taught me the word ''truck'' except in the form of ''the F word''.
Well, one day when my parents were driving me home from day care, I saw a truck and started yelling the F word repeatedly, pointing to a truck. My parents were quite sure sneaky Justin had taught me that. He's done goofy things like that before, like putting pom poms in a certain place on a Halloween skeleton at seven.
We met him a few years ago. He was in his twenties. My dad told him this story and he was beet red!

When I was a child, I overheard my second eldest brother and his friends saying that when they were children, they knew all of the swear words except the long one beginning with "m." For some reason, I thought the elusive "m" word must have been "Makker." I never dared use this word and was shocked when I heard that it can short for "Malcolm." I then decided I must be wrong and was puzzled until discovering the word was in fact "mother******."

a little while ago my brother used to think shutup was a swear word. Every time I said it he would tell. One day I said it and he told and said this : "Mom, Rachael said the S word. But don't worry, it wasn't shit!"

In second grade, my friend had told me to say "luck" in the name game. I, of course, then ended up saying the "f" word. She then tattled on me and got me in trouble, and I had no idea what that word was or why it was bad until a few years later.

I was horrified, yet amused when I was walking through town one day with my 7 year old cousin. We walked past the French Connection UK shop, and she suddenly declared at the top of her lungs, 'Mummy said never to say fuck because it's naughty, so why does the shop have it in the window?'

Of course she was talking about the abbreviation 'FCUK'

Bless her!

When I was young, I was told never to swear. So for a long time afterward, I got very offended when I heard someone say "I swear..."

My little brother used to believe that the 'bat man' dance (where you streak two fingers across each eye) was a swear word. My other brother and I used to walk up to him and do it all the time just to get him to think we were swearing at him.

He also believed that teenagers were people that walked around in trench coats and flashed everyone.

my 2 cousins thought the words 'bad word' was actually a curse. they'd go to there mom and say 'DJ said a bad word' or something like that and she'd go crazy tring to figure out bad word

ex.

"Mom he said badword"
"What badword"
"Bad word"
"Which one?"
"Badword"

Its so funny if they argued theyd say "You little bad word!"
