What are the first words that come to your head or out of your mouth when you step on a nail or fall right in the middle of street? If you're from Utah, it might not be the typical "bad" word, but a replacement.
Our local vernacular is filled with amazing non-pejorative substitutions for those moments when you wish you could express your deep feelings, but you just can’t do so: Cheese and rice, son of a biscuit, fudge, mother trucker, shitake mushrooms, and swan in a ditch are some of the ways that you can say what you want without offending anyone.
