Fran, apart from Wauber told you, I have heard, "Oxe!" (short for Oxente!). People around here (here = Pernambuco) throw it around a lot. They also use the expletive "Visse?" (short for Ouvisse) as in "Me liga, visse?" "Aparece por lá, visse?" "Bla-bla-bla, visse?" They'll Visse you a lot. It sounds like "Vice-" as in "Vice-Presidente."
