How do you get Alexa to swear?

Amazon doesn't officially allow Alexa to use any profanity (the software will flag swear words before you submit them), but you can still trick it into saying a close-enough sounding word. For example, "f*ck" isn't allowed. So we went with "fug" and "fooking" and that cleared up any issues we were facing. Booooo!
