Gadzooks!

And other rarely heard exclamations.

I once taught a lad who said, "Dash!" when he'd made a mistake which I thought was a wonderful step back in time.

What else do we rarely hear?
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Never said Jamie mack, that's a Dublin thing. I say Jaysus, Mary and Joseph jokingly and pretend to bless myself if someone is making a mountain out of a mole hill about something.

My son and I were just discussing terms like this. I use "cool" still and he uses "hella," as in "hella cool."

'Oh crumbs!'

and

'"Crikey!'

I use both a lot.

To commiserate I sometimes use "Hard lines!" or "Hard cheese!", which my wife hadn't heard before.
