    My high school drama teacher was always concerned about swear words in the plays he produced and directed at the school, so he would come up with fake expletives for us to use instead. My favorite was “Sodoba Kamachi.” Say it fast, loud, and angry. Turns out it was the title of a classic Japanese kabuki play.
