"Uff da" is a Norwegian expression of frustration, surprise, or shock. In America, the expression is common among families of Norwegian descent and people throughout the Midwest. It is a perfectly polite expression that may be used in place of profanity or to express subtle amusement at a ridiculous situation. It is analogous to the popular Yiddish expression "Oy vey."
