If you’ve spent any time in the Vermont region, chances are you’ve heard the exclamation “Jeezum Crow!,” which is simply a euphemism for “Jesus Christ!” This is part of a complete episode.

    Gotta wonder if the Catholic Latin formulation, To Jesus through Mary, “Ad Jesum per Mariam” has anything to do with this. Jesum is just the accusative case of Jesus, more or less similar to the Mingus album, Mingus Ah Um, which is Mingus in the masculine, feminine, and neuter nominative case. Also similar is the phrase, Jesus H. Christ, based I’ll bet on the IHS monogram found in many churches. In that, it looks as if the H. is somehow a middle initial. All this is just guesswork.
