I was going for eye-rollingly old-fashioned, but trying to avoid cartoonish caricature. The problem is I don't know anyone in real-life who'd use Bowdlerised swear words* and thus nothing occured to me as I was playing in real time other than actual profanity or bad phony Alabama accent Nick Cage.

I could really use suggestions for Alabama-appropriate versatile words to serve the purpose of profanity in speech (covering hesitation, conveying emotion or emphasis, etc.). How does anyone manage to speak normally without such a useful crutch?

*My grandmother may use fewer curse words than my mother (who is hardly a prolific profanity-maker), but that's a function of being older, more collected and better at emphasising her speech without crutch-syllables. I can't imagine her actually angrily exclaiming a cutesy euphemism.
