Craj, et al

A couple of fellows in my high school, one of them going to be a crooner teen idol and the other going to be either a lawyer-rabbi or a rabbi-lawyer (I prefer the latter -- less smarmy), made a habit of making up words. Craj, the all-purpose expletive, was the favorite, and, four years after its coiners' graduation, is still common even in the middle school level.

Well, I've got an addition, from the Backfence: "why, buckle my fiery pants!"

Gotta start using that.
