Creative exclamations needed

Posted by ESC on September 22, 2003

Does anyone watch "Trading Spaces"? It's the American cousin of Britain's "Changing Rooms." Neighbors switch houses and decorate a room with the help of a designer and a carpenter. Each team gets to see the newly decorated room during the "reveal" and the homeowners inevitably yell, "Oh my GAWD."

Trading Spaces discussion board folk are looking for some creative exclamations to take the place of OMG. Anyone have any ideas? Here's what I've come up with:

Leaping lizards.
Oh, my stars and garters.
Good golly Miss Molly.
Heavens to Betsy.
Yowser!!
Godfrey Daniel.
Jeepers creepers.
Great grandmother on a plate.

(The origin of the last one was a topic I started concerning a designer putting granny's photo on a plate.)
