[[folder: Advertisements]] * [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrSECcj5V7w This]] 1990s PublicServiceAnnouncement by the Independent Television Commission, the former CensorshipBureau for British commercial television, on their regulation of swearing on TV. If you didn't click, the advert shows a spoof cop show action scene with tough cops and crooks talking to each other like Creator/EnidBlyton characters. [[/folder]]

* In ''Franchise/GodOfWar'', Ancient Grecian SociopathicHero Kratos often uses the term "By the Gods!" as an exclamation. Given that he ''is'' ancient, it's highly appropriate for his setting.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', Ace was a [[{{Badbutt tough teenage delinquent]] who wasn't allowed to swear. On more than one occasion she used "Gordon Bennett" as an oath, probably the '''only''' person born in the 1970s to do so unironically in fiction or real life.

* ''TheMusicMan'', which takes place in a small Iowa town, 1912, has a character who keeps saying "Jeely Cly." For reasons not easily explained, the movie changed this to "Great Honk." - which the mayor still considers offensive speech.

* In Creator/LRonHubbard's ''Mission Earth'' series, a "translation convention" replaces all swearwords with (Bleep). It gets ''really'' tiresome after a while.

** In ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'', Nanny Ogg is so shocked by the sight of Esme all Duchessed up that none of her ample vocabulary of swearwords are sufficient, and she resorts to an ancient curse used by her grandmother: "I'll be ''morgadored.''"

* The Old Man from ''Film/AChristmasStory'' mutters a stream of old-fashioned expletives whenever he's frustrated (although it's somewhat implied that the narrator is toning it down for the audience). Ralphie also accidentally blurts out a very modern profanity but the narrator retroactively changes it to "Fudge". His parents were horrified.
