Dadgummit is a spooneristic euphemism for GD.

I'm guessing "Dad Gum" is a Christians way of saying, "God Damn!"

You know, like "Oh my gosh!" instead of "Oh my God!"

Or, "Gosh Darn it" instead of "God Damn it!"

I'm not Christian, so I can say these things.

At least 3. Sometimes I forget that some people have a more limited vocabulary and are sensitive about such things.

These are all reasons I love the English language. It's so variable, we have so many regional colloquialisms, and can express things in degrees that I find fascinating. Really, the reason we all feel so much pressure to not use certain terms or spellings is because the dictionaries decided that there should only be ONE was of spelling something, or one way of expressing it. I find it useful to be able to say might could instead of probably could, just as I might say I might arrive at 10, or I will probably arrive at 10.

To me, we should celebrate our expressiveness. Even if it includes talking about matza balls, cathead biscuits, and baloney cakes.

But that's just me.

MMmmmm.. Cathead biscuits..


How about "Head Cheese"?

What a fine way of using animal parts that are inedible...


EDIT: Not a dairy product.

Probably because nobody would purchase something called "gelled pig brains".

Kind of like cheese. Who's going to buy something called "block of hard, soured milk"?

I'll have a slice of ground up cow corpse with solidified ruined milk and pre-chewed tomatoes on a dried up mashed together wad of plants please.
