Now, we all know Chef Gordon Ramsay loves his curse words -- but fortunately, Gordon's children haven't inherited his notoriously dirty mouth.

"So rather than saying the word s---, which is not nice, shiitake," said Gordon Ramsay on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

"Like the mushroom," said Jimmy Kimmel.

"It's not nice saying the word f---, so we say the word fructose," said Gordon.

Wow, real creative there, Gordon. We have no clue what could have inspired those particular words.

Fans on Twitter were loving Gordon's curse word substitutes -- but we know at least someone who wasn't: one of the teachers at his kids' school.

Gordon confessed the teacher called him at home to scold him about letting his children say "shiitake" as a swear. His response? "Mushrooms are delicious. Now, f--- off."

There's the Gordon we know and love! To see more of the chef and his sailor talk, you can catch new episodes of "Hell's Kitchen" Tuesdays on Fox.
