I'd never heard of "fetch", and I couldn't figure out what it meant! I'm not sure I see the point of replacing a "true" swear word with a non-offensive word when it's obvious that the word it's replacing is one of the big ones. Then again, I've probably done something similar once or twice, so I shouldn't talk!
There's "I'm not feeling it", too. I didn't realize how odd it could sometimes sound until it came out of my mother's mouth.
To me "clean cussing" sounds just as bad as regular cussing. Obviously you're going to clean up your language in public and use "replacement words" from time to time, but cursing up like a clean sailor is still ugly. You don't say the F-word, why is fetch or fick acceptable? I keep getting after my son because of his "clean cussing" when he's playing his video games because it really is no different in my mind and sounds much the same. "Language dear!" I keep saying. "Shoot" doesn't hit my cuss-o-meter the same way, maybe because it blends with "shucks" in my mind.
I'm glad someone brought up baby daddy, baby momma, and rents...those annoy me too. I'm really enjoying seeing what people find annoying. Some of the things that annoy others, I'm totally okay with. I never use "nom, nom" in a conversation, but funny for captions.
Do people actually use "nom" in a sentence and conversation? How?
