* A darker example in ''Film/{{Conspiracy}}'', a drama about [[UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust the Wannsee Conference]], during which the Security Police managed to get authorization for an anti-Jewish genocide (later termed "Operation Reinhard") which outshone the ones accomplished to that date by the Wehrmacht, ''Einsatzgruppen'', and Regional Security Chiefs. The term 'evacuation' is frequently used to describe the Security Police's programme. After about an hour of this Lange, who works with the security forces in ''Reichskomissariat Ostland'' (and has been engaged in the usual 'preventative security' operations to eliminate demographics who might support the Communist Insurgency there), tires of his indirectness.

* Lampshaded in the EgoRaptor production ''WebAnimation/GirlChanInParadise'' when Yusuke gets mad and starts pronouncing the word fuck with an elongated f noise, only to have Kenstar interrupt and ask if he's about to say the f word. Yusuke's response is "You mean.... fuck!" Kenstar then gives a subdued response "Yes, that would be it."

-->'''Smith:''' You're going to help remove some of the filth.
-->'''Remo:''' I like that. That's nice. It's a lot nicer than "kill," or "destroy," or "terminate with extreme prejudice." That's what you're really talking about, isn't it?
