9 Ridiculous Words That Used to Be Considered Curses ...


We all have our favorite curse words, whether we feel comfortable using them or not. However, some of them didn't even exist a few decades ago. Back then, they had an entirely different set of curse words, most of which sound funny to us today. Here are some vintage curse words that you can use in this century without offending anybody:

1. 'Snails

'Snails was a shortened way of saying "God's nails" and we all know that any form of the word God or Jesus was once considered a curse word. 'Snails sounds pretty ridiculous to us now, but back then, it would've made you cringe. So the next time you accidentally give yourself a paper cut, feel free to yell 'snails. Of course, everyone will probably look at the ground for the critter they assume you've seen.
