35 Words Southerners Love to Use in Place of Cuss Words

In the South, we believe in manners and politeness. We love “yes ma’am” and “no ma’am,” “please,” and “thank you;” and sometimes we’re so polite we don’t even say real cuss words. In fact, we’ve created quite the vernacular of fake cuss words – words that aren’t quite as offensive as the real thing, but words that still get your dadgum point across.

35 Words Southerners Love to Use in Place of Cuss Words:

The Darn/Dangs:
1. “Dang it”
2. “Damage”

3. “Dad Blast It”

5. “Dadgummit”
(A Southern favorite)

The 4-letter “S word” substitutes:
6. “Crap”

7. “Crapola”

8. “Crud”

9. “Crud muffin” (

11. “Holy hhip” (
Like the Pope’s boat maybe?)
12. “Holy crap”
13. “Holy moly”
