I mostly say "Oh my gods." instead, since zero is grammatically plural (think "Yes, we have no bananas." or "I have no gods.").

Do you do this?

I used to always think that people who said "Oh my gosh!" were theists trying to be "nice", and not swear. My awareness has been expanded!
I say "son of a bitch", sometimes with the f word before bitch.
FInally, here's someone who I understand!
I like to say "Oh your God" (Futurama <3). Of course, that only works with religious people, and hopefully ones with a sense of humor.
I yell out, "Godfrey Daniels, Doctor Beebee and Billy Truman!"

Thank WC Fields for that one. :)
Oh my "Bob," "Praise Bob" "Bob Damnit!"

I'm a Subgenius, and no, the world didn't end yesterday. Bob screwed us again. Pra'Bob.
I say "oh my god".

Most Christians do this too, and that breaks their sacred 10 Commandments. I say it just for that reason.

Hippocracy is a hell of a thing.
Funny though, as the meaning of that commandment is most definitely askew from it's original meaning
I'm French, but I often swears in English or Frenglish.

My fave is "Oh my gode". It sounds exactly like "Oh my God", but of course the meaning is quite different, as gode is French for dildo.

I also often use "Beep" when there are American people around. They usually reply something like "I've never heard a Frenchman swear like this". I reply that, as a foreigner, my knowledge of American culture mostly comes from TV shows, where "beep" is by far the most common swear word. "What the beep", "beep you", "go beep yourself", "you beeping bitch", it allows for infinite variations.
hahaha! Brilliant! One of the funniest collisions of cross-cultural exchange/censorship I think I've ever seen.
Love it, my new swear!
That's funny, Jaume, about both "gode" and also "beep". It's true in the US they can show someone getting murdered on TV, but they can't allow swearing I guess.

My favorite is that sometimes when a person in a movie or show will say "God damn", the censors will bleep out the word "God" and leave in the word "damn". So I claim that they take out "God" because it is too offensive.

As for what I say when I swear, I almost never do in English around people (probably from my religious upbringing as a kid), but to myself I often say "god in hell" or "oh my god in hell". I've never heard anyone else say these I don't think, so I don't know where I got that from.
