Logic!" (The general themes of these episodes is that without religion, people will just treat other ideologies as religions anyway.)



* It's a plot point in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''. In the episode "Bloodlines", time-traveler Impulse explains that "crash" is good and "mode" is the absolute worst-- it's always better to "crash the mode." He also uses "meat" to refer to people he isn't impressed by. [[spoiler:Earlier episodes featured the "Partner" of the bad guys' group using "meat" in the same way. Meanwhile, the VillainOfTheWeek is being monitored by a pair of shadowy aliens, who comment that the exercise is "on-mode" and abort the mission when the mode begins to crash. TheStinger reveals that Impulse is from a BadFuture, and the entire point of his trip was to crash the mode]].

* The 2d-animated spinoff ''BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' (spun from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' and ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'') seemed to include futuristic swearing. Swearing in a Creator/{{Disney}} title? Aw, craters.

** In the ''Shadows'' series, it's remarked upon by one of the characters that battle school slang is slowly moving into common use. Some also appeared in ''Empire'', this being handwaved away by the extensive Arabic education the characters had received.
** Supposedly OSC pulled an Anthony Burgess for ''Shadows'': he created the Battle School slang via the transliteration of existing, modern-day slang phrases from cultures all over the world. There used to be a page on his website [[ShownTheirWork explaining all the etymology]].
** Got it archived [[http://web.archive.org/web/20000901071301/www.philoticweb.net/compendium/culbschool.html here]]
