In the Bible (apparently) it says somewhere "Thou Shalt Not Swear" Latter day Christians have discovered a small foot note to this verse that adds "... using commonly accepted swear words".

Thus the Improvised Expletive Device (IED) was born, replacing commonly accepted swear words with any other word - thus not swearing!
"Oh (can't say f$*K so insert Improvised Expletive Device) Folly - I've just hit my hand with a hammer"

"Jeepers - that was close!"

"Oh Shucks - I wanted to say that"
