Variations on a Theme

I gave up swearing shortly after college, but it can be a challenge sometimes to come up with an "appropriate expression" that used to be filled with a four-letter variety.

But since practice makes perfect, and since I like language anyway, I'm gonna ask you to "fill in the blank" with a new-and-improved expression.

This week's expression is: "Holy _____!"

  • Holy Joseph! (the one I've retrained myself to say)
  • Holy Moses!
  • Holy frijoles!
  • Holy cow!
  • Holy rusted metal, Batman!

    C'mon, give me some more ... !

    I have no idea why I say this, but my fav is 'Holy crow'. And now my friend says it, too!

    I'm partial to "Holy Guacamole", but you have to hear the inflection to get the full effect. :)

    There's always the old "holy smoke!"

    Holy unlikely.

    Holy out of the question.

    Holy shitake mushrooms.
