Parents Swearing in Polish - doesn't make any sense!!

I have parents who use very colourful language sometimes but when you stop to think about what they're actually saying... it make no sense.. either that or my polish is crap. Sometimes I think it isn't even in Polish...

Kurcze pieczone ( don't know about the spelling) Sounds to me like baked chicken!!

Then why would they say that? It must sound similar to something else... like saying "oh..fiddlesticks" lol

Well, come to think of it, my mum only says that - maybe it's more of a lady-like thing to say

Typical "older" curses: (...which literally translated, sound weird!)

Psiakrew!! = Blast!, Sonnnofab_ _ _ _ h! ("dog's blood")
Cholera! = Dammit! ("cholera")
Psiakrew bydlo! = Same as "psiakrew" ("dog's blood", "cattle")
