“Boy Howdy” generally does the trick for me.

I forgot to mention a couple of my favorites:

“Smart ankle” instead of “smart ass”
“Son of a biscuit eater” instead of “son of a bitch”

don’t really use substitutes… son of a bitch just sounds too nice to hide.

Beans and Rice is nice to use when around people who might be offended by Jesus Christ.

Son of a Gopher for Son of a Bitch

I don’t substitute for “Jesus Christ”. In fact, I usually elaborate:
Jesus H. Christ
Jesus Christ in a Handbasket
Jesus, Mary and Joseph

I also don’t substitute for “Fuck” because I only say it when I’m really mad (which is rare).

When I use euphemisms in place of swear words, I use “boogers” or “pants” because they make me smile and take my mind off of whatever I would’ve been swearing about.
