    I have a problem.

    I am very verbally enthusiastic about expressing my disdain when I'm not given a fair shot at a ball (like a SDTM off a skill shot), or when I come up just short of a goal like a free ball or multiball, and I let the machine have it -- verbally.
    I mostly play at home, and my tendency is to swear swiftly and decisively when things don't go right. I actually just release all the disgust in a moment, and move on (mostly) relaxed, and I'm back to being rather quiet and focused.
    The words that come out of my mouth compartment -- won't work well in a public location with kids around. I'm determined to build up a good "alternate set" of phrases to use so that I can continue to express my disgust at key times, and not upset any nearby parents.

    I need your help.

    What are your best substitutions for:

    1. fu**ing hell
    2. fu** you
    3. you bast***
    4. son of a b****

    you get the idea...

    etc...

    thanks,

    I say fudge a lot. I was a HUGE cusser until I moved in with my now wife and her daughter. I say fudge, crud, monkey butt? (no idea why), gee-min-ently, and also through a couple crud-monkeys in there haha. Very weird, but that is what replaced those 4 phrases you listed above. Now, when I am at the bar I like to play at, it is F this, and F that all the time haha.

    Nuts!

    The classic, "AHH Fudge" also works.

    That game is so much fun haha.

    #14 4 years ago

    I am a big cusser, but when I'm trying to tone it down I say stuff like "come on!" and "are you kidding me?!"

    #15 4 years ago

    I use, Frak, Son of a Bee Hive, Yow Mama and Crap.

    #16 4 years ago

    I generally make unintelligible grunts and moans, with the occasional "Dammit" thrown in.

    #17 4 years ago

    I like to yell Camp David or Mary Todd Lincoln

    AHHHHHHH, Johnny Dangerously. Love it !!!

    #19 4 years ago

    At least your swearing at games that are plugged into the wall!!.... You have a right to verbally abuse a pin because that's what there there for. Monkey butts and sugar will NOT fill that void.

    #20 4 years ago

    Egad
    Drat
    Gadzooks

    These were all hardcore swears back in the day.
    Swears in general only last about 150 years before they become so common they lose their panache.

    Keep droppin F bombs I'm ready for some new curses.

    #22 4 years ago

    I just always yell COME ON!!!

    Just ask my family

    #23 4 years ago

    Dad gum it. Stone of a peach.

    #24 4 years ago

    I swear that I will never visit some locations again. Does that count?

    #25 4 years ago

    This thread reminds me of how mormon kids try and get away with swearing. SOOT!

    #26 4 years ago

    When I was a preschool teacher I learned to turn it off when its not appropriate. But I heard one of the funniest things around that time, a little girl was trying to drive her tricycle behind another kid, but the kid in front was too slow. So she tried to emulate what her mommy said when she was driving and started angrilly saying "Fox in a hole, Fox in a hole!" because thats how she missheard f**king a**hole.

    #27 4 years ago

    Bollocks!

    Bugger off!

    #28 4 years ago

    As Rudy says 'Hey! It's only pinball.'

    #29 4 years ago

    I swear a lot when playing. I'm on a 12-step program, and currently trying switch to simply flipping the machine off. I'm making progress!

    #30 4 years ago
    Quoted from Astropin:

    Since I have a 3 year old, the rule at my house is substitute Morgan freeman for mo**her fu**er. Same initials, not as much satisfaction

    #33 4 years ago

    "bleep"

    feels good, and eaves-droppers just laugh

    #34 4 years ago

    I had a student a couple of years ago who would yell "Cheez-its" when he messed up. Sounded just like Jesus. I had to correct him with a straight face.

    #35 4 years ago

    Your curses are mild compared to mine when I am really pissed off. I could used yours as a sub for mine to clean them up.

    #36 4 years ago

    My safe safe words are mother f'er and son of a bitch. Bitch is allowable with the FCC so I'm okay with it.

    #37 4 years ago

    "NOOOO!"

    #38 4 years ago

    One of my go-to's when needed is the old standby Jeezum Crow!

    Not sure but that may be a New England thing...

    #39 4 years ago

    I yell like Lil Jon while playing

    "AhhhhWhuuut"

    "OHH KHAYY"

    "Ayeeeeahhhhh"

    It's worse when I'm crunk lol

    #40 4 years ago

    I've been using "Rosie O'Donnell instead of the C-word.

    #41 4 years ago

    I would just stick to locations you can let it fly. That is what I do. If I offend someone at a bar, well they can go fu&k off.

    #43 4 years ago

    Some of my favorites:

    What the French?!
    Shut the front door!
    Mother Trucker!
    Balls!

    #44 4 years ago

    Barbara Streisand

    #45 4 years ago

    gosh darn it

    #46 4 years ago

    Son of a mother

    #47 4 years ago

    I don't remember when I started doing it but when I need to temper a public vocal tantum I always yell "GOD ...bless america" loud and proud. People around me privy to the context of my situation know exactly what I'm not saying through clenched teeth by the seething way it comes out but can't say they're offended by it. Has always worked as a tension release for me in delicate situations. Try it.

    #48 4 years ago

    Good idea for a thread.

    My PG words are "Nuts! " and "Son of a gun!"

    There are many kids in Modern Pinball NYC.
    Lots of the Brooklyn yuppies bring their rugrats to the bars I play in as well. Don't you people get it? Your lives are over. No more hanging out at the bar with us cool childless hipsters.

    I seem to be able to switch the language unconsciously. Maybe I ought to take it easy with the swearing in general. Even in an adult venue it looks peculiar. I freak over drains and then regain composure as if nothing happened. When I'm alone at the office I scream CRAZY shit at the computer (avid workstations). In similar privacy, who knows what I'd yell at a pinball.

    #49 4 years ago

    In high school baseball, whenever we cursed, we had to run laps.

    So we just started yelling FIRE TRUCK! Our coach knew we were using as a substitute, but he let it go.
