NAMPA, Idaho — “Rats,” “shucks,” “poop,” “fiddlesticks, “phooey,” and “son of a Baptist preacher” are just a sampling of the 144,000 church potluck-friendly expletives published in a comprehensive volume called Dictionary of Vegetarian Curse Words published by the Pacific Press today.
The new book faithfully guides Adventists through a “witty wonderland of vegetarian curse terms that are already widely used within the Adventist community.”
Editors of the dictionary were careful only to include terms that had been heard repeatedly in frustrating meetings on the third floor of the GC building.
“We wanted a resource to better equip Adventists with things to say when they are cut off in traffic or when they burn the lentil roast right before Friday sunset,” said Pacfic Press spokesperson, Jumpeen Jehosophat. “Why resort to common worldly curse words when you can use really peculiar vegetarian ones?”
