A word used by kids and adults years ago that seems to have fallen out of use but still used occasionally.

A word that a kid used when they hit their fingers accidentally with a hammer or was hurt suddenly in an unexpected way. They used this word in place of curse words like damn, damnit, or any other cuss word that comes to mind. Many times you'd get a whipping anyway for saying a word close to a curse word.

This was done because years ago adults did not want their kids to cuss. It did not matter if you came from a religious family or not. Sometimes the non-religious would whip you harder than a religious person would.
Kid 1. "Momma whipped me yesterday." "I still can't sit down too long."

Kid 2. "I am sorry!" "I still remember that one your mom gave me." "When I got home and told my mom about it she whipped me too." "I got a third when dad got off work." " By the way what happened this time????"

Kid 1. "A thunderstorm was coming." Mom told me to run the chickens back into their chicken house." "I got them all in except for the rooster, you know, the one that flogs us when our backs are turned."

Kid 2 " Yeah I know that....(Slaps hand over mouth aand looks around in fear)

Kid 1 "I got mad at that rooster." "I was already mad at him because he'd cut me with his spurs a few days ago when he flogged me." I was so mad I actually said "Dang old rooster"".

Kid 2. And your momma heard you?"

Kid 1. "You git that right." " You put your hand over your mouth earlier instead of saying a cuss word which means you probably thought a cuss word." Does your mom whip you for thinking cuss words too."

Kid 2 "Yes." "I can't wait until I grow up and cuss like daddy does."

Kid 1. " You ain't even safe then." "Momma heard dad say a bad word and told him he was acting like White Trash."

To dang someone or something means, to throw pennies at the person or object.
Once they realized how much of a poon he was, they began danging him until he was black and blue, with little black and blue dots all over him, each one being about the size of a penny.
