    I have not come accross any such utterrance using the word 'neblous'. However, a few others used in such circumstaces:
    Oh my goose!: what you say when you feel embarrassed for someone.
    Oh my goodness!: Used as an interjection when something is blown out of proportion or simply surprising.
    Oh my gosh! Used by people who hate to take name of God

    This is an outdated expression, in my opinion, and I think it sounds funny. Golly!

    Gee!

    Gee whiz!

    Those are outdated expressions too, in my opinion. I wouldn't use any of these, unless you're trying to be funny.

    My apologies to those who still may use these expressions.
