One of my developers always had all errors return "woops". It was fun for a bit, but the users started making fun of it, and.... Well, stuff that is fun turns into a negative real quick.

Actually, "Oops...This is Awkward," is not the worst wording for an error message. It's better than "You Have Encountered an Error" or something equally dry.

Know what works best? Really? Numbers. Seriously. People actually report back error numbers much better (more accurately etc) than anything else.
