** The squib "Medical Notes", written by Sir Terry for one Convention programme guide, claims some people on the Disc suffer from Floribundi Syndrome, the opposite of HollywoodTourettes. These sudden outbursts of polite language only count as a disorder if suffered by fishwives, [[DrillSergeantNasty drill sergeants]] and other people ''expected'' to swear. Named after Sergeant-Major Floribundi, whose men mutinied after being called "You quite vexing gentlemen".

** Similarly in French, "Merde!" ("Shit!") will occasionally change to "Mercredi!" ("Wednesday!") mid-word and "putain!" (lit. "wh*re", meaning "f**k") to "purée" ("mash!") or "punaise!" ("drawing pin!")

* Wrestling/KurtAngle during his initial pro wrestling debut for the [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} World Wrestling Federation]], during its "Attitude Era" no less, though it would later be averted in Wrestling/{{TNA}}.
* Wrestling/MattSydal was known for his tirades of G-rated cursing, even in the explicitly "Adults F-N Only" shows of Gateway Championship Wrestling, where profanity otherwise flowed freely. His reasoning was he wanted to do as little as possible to offend anyone who might otherwise [[MerchandiseDriven buy his products]].

Contrary to popular belief, the words "damn" and "hell" are permissible in a G-rated film. For example, the 1971 movie ''Film/{{Airport}}'' had both ("Where the hell are you?" and "You've always got some damn excuse!") and it still received a G rating, though movie-rating standards have changed since then. Even some G-rated animated features, such as ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'', ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH'', and ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', have included mild swear words. However, it is worth noting that "Hell" can refer to [[{{Hell}} the place]] and "damn" can mean condemnation to said place, and thus are not swear words even if such concepts are a little heavy for children. "Bitch" and "ass" almost never get such passes, though "ass" is sometimes used as a joke when referring to a donkey.

** The (rather old fashioned) French swearword "jarnicoton" comes from one of the French King Henri IV's Bishop advisers, Coton, asking the reportedly foul-mouthed King to use his own name instead of God when swearing - so instead of saying "Ja r'nie Dieu" (accented version of "Je renie Dieu", "I deny God"), it became "Ja r'nie Coton" ("I deny Coton").
