Land O Goshen is a Southern expression of amazement or frustration. The Land of Goshen is a place referred to two times in the Bible, once as a province of Egypt (in the time of Joseph) and another time as a Canaanite land renamed Goshen in the book of Joshua. After Moses led the Jews out of Egypt (Goshen) and Joshua finally led them into Canann, they named a portion of the Promised Land, Goshen. This may be why the phrase is used as an exclamation of amazement and frustration, as the Land of Goshen was the place of the Israelites bondage, and later a place in the Promised Land.
1. Land O Goshen, I just saw a shooting star!
2. Land O Goshen, if I have to tell you to close that front door again I'm gonna tan your hide, boy!
3. Land O Goshen, that apple pie is the tastiest I ever et, Ma!

On the farm, sometimes, weeds will sprout out of cow patties. They are called "shitweeds". The term is also used for a person who is miserably disagreeable, an asshole
or a jerk
, but has a greater depth of meaning. It represents someone who is bad and worthless (like a weed) who was spawned by something equally worthless (like shit). A person who is a "shitweed" is similar to white trash
, a low and base person raised by low and base people.
