Had (an old, alcoholic Louisiana-born & -bred) math teacher in junior high that favored "dad-blum" and would often curse us "dad-blum honyocks"...he was our JV basketball coach that got 3 technical fouls and thrown out of the game for yelling at the ref - it was pretty funny.

If Gabby Johnson had been a hired gun...

Dad gum it, it got so ruffin' sad so that purty darn near ever one of them prairie punks what ken they could fire a dad gum shootin' iron would ride theys dadburned horse inta town to try out Gabby the Kid. I mussin have kilt more dad gum fellas then that fellah C. B. DeMiller. It got downright plum outta hand. I was a beginnin' to har "draw" when I twere dozin. A finally, one day I was just dadburned walking down the bishen cutter street when I hears a voice comin from behinds me sayin "Reach for it, mister!" I commenced to spinnin round...and there I twere, face on face with a dadgummed six-year old whippersnapper. Well, I throws down mah equalizers and mosied away. Little sidewindin' bushwackin', hornswagglin' bastard shot me in mah git-along. So I peg-legged over to the closest dadburned saloon, mosied into a whiskey bottle...and I've a been in that dern bottle every since. An no sidewindin' bushwackin', hornswagglin' cracker croaker is a gonna drag me outta thar...

Being born and raised where (supposedly) Sam Hill originated as an epithet, I find that a lot of these come pretty naturally to me.
