so a severed head rolls across the floor and hits your foot. you look down and say, "Jesus!"

or not.

i'm editing page proofs, and i noticed that three of my characters use the same Jesus exclamation in different dramatic situations. this must stop. what would you say if a severed head rolled across the floor in front of you?

holy shit!

holy crap!

What the fuck??
"I thought I buried you."

I'm having a similar problem. My characters, particularly my protagonist, swear a lot. After a while, it fades away into the same territory that "said" lives in. But I still don't want to use "Christ," all the fucking time. Or even "fuck" all the fucking time.

I'm finding the ads on this thread somewhat disturbing, too.

Jesus Loves You - Do You Love Jesus? Test Your Faith Now!

I'm sorry, but that's pretty fucked up. Why do you need to test your faith? What is it about god that makes him so insecure? Reminds me of a girlfriend I used to have who would constantly do thing to piss me off just to see if I would still like her. "Do you still love me if I do this?"

God needs some serious therapy.
Somehow I don't think god's the insecure one...but I haven't heard anything from him/her/it directly, so I could be totally wrong. Or not.

Know what you mean about repetitive profanity, though. I've got a pretty small number of characters, so I'm trying to make sure they each have their own pet expletive expression. Otherwise it does get pretty effin' monotonous. And who the hell says "effin'" anyway? I've never quite understood that one...say it or don't, but don't get all coy about it. Um, unless you're me.

I need a fuckin' nap. or some coffee.
God, if the big book of buggery bollocks is to be believed, is both insecure and easily conned by the fella with the horns and the tail. Look what the fucker did to Job! What a twat!
Most likely I'd either faint or panic and run away and call the police.
I'm supposing the person who found the head rolling towards their footware is used to this sort of thing happening. Now if I was a person who had encountered discombobulated body parts before I might say something like.

"Christ on a bike!"
Of it you want a bit each way keeping with the quasi-religious theme and an expletive for impact
"F*ckin 'ell"

OH and btw. No it's not PC but gee it's fun.
heh! yeah, a cop gets treated to the rolling head, so he's a bit used to nasty stuff. i really like christ on a bike.
Around here the response would probably be "well, bugger me". But for some reasons most of the non-Australians we've tried to explain that the subtitles of "bugger" to, can still make it sound like an invitation... [VBEG]
repeat after me Karen - subtlety - not subtitles .... sigh
i really like bugger me.
uh-oh. i ran this thread through the rating meter i found on patrick shawn bagley's hillbillies and hitmen.
