10 Old-Fashioned Swears to Spice up Your Cussin'

Taboos against what we would today consider pretty mild exclamations like "damn!" "hell!" and "Jesus Christ!" led the swearers of years past to come up with creative substitutions that gave them some measure of emotional release while keeping within the bounds of propriety.

“There are people who have solar panels right now on their houses in Oakland, California that don’t know Prince paid for them,” Jones said.
