: 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.)

Not so creative but here's a few...

Great balls of fire!
Landsakes (is that what it is?)
Oh my gosh!
Get outta here!

Do you think anybody would ever use these?
