Get the f*** out of my car.
Out of would most probably be pronounced "outta" in these sentences.
Variations are possible.
Get out of my f***ing car.
Get out of my god damn car.
Get your (god damn/f***ing) ass/arse out of my car.
With profanities, the possibilities are endless
However there's rarely a need to use them (except for the most extreme, emotionally distraught instances). But even then a cold, calculated and calmly uttered demand can have just as much of an unsettling/insisting tone if delivered correctly.
OK, thank you colloquium, but that's not exactly what I am looking for, but you answered fine, and I don't know exactly what I am asking.
Actually, I heard somewhere a very upset woman who said to her husband,
get the xxxx off me!
So I am trying to remember what she said, I guess possibilities are endless, aren't they?
Quite a few! Apart from f***, there are - in order of strength - hell, heck, and blazes (which all mean the same - in adjectival contexts it's possible to use the more academic 'infernal). I've also heard 'dickens', but that's rather mannered now; in the nineteenth and early twentieth century 'dickens' was a popular substitute for 'hell' - in several contexts: 'What the dickens are you doing here?', 'There was the dickens of a noise'... in Guys and Dolls - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Miss Adelaide sings about 'the chickens' which are 'going to the dickens'.
To avoid saying 'hell' (or anything stronger), I've heard people saying nothing: 'What the [pause] are you doing?' there is also a convention whereby you can report speech containing profanities by substituting the word 'blank': 'He asked me what the blank I was doing.'
PS Of course, if it is 'off', the possibilities really are almost endless, as the 'X' could be any noun: 'Get the ladder/pudding/spider... off me'. If, on the other hand. it's really 'of', possible contexts are pretty unlikely but comparative adjectives are also possible: 'Get the better of me'...
