* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'': Dean: "My big gift is a jumpsuit???". Dr.Venture: "Speedsuit Dean, Speedsuit. I don't ever want to hear you say jumpsuit again."" In season six it's seen that Dr. Venture is not alone. His tailor Enzo will literally spit in someone's face for saying "jumpsuit".

** This also goes for "whipped cream chargers." Not to say that these [=N2O=] canisters aren't used for culinary purposes or that stoners don't enjoy some whipped cream, but the chargers are constantly advertised in stoner rags, and most folks probably ''don't'' feel like making the stuff from scratch when they're getting high on Nitrous Oxide.

** The fake urine that people use for the extremely illegal practice of cheating on drug tests is always referred to on the packaging as a product for simulated "watersports," although people who actually ''have'' that fetish likely don't see much point in simulating it when bottled water and asparagus are fairly cheap. Some brands then proceed [[WhatAnIdiot to ruin their own deception]] by boasting in print ads about how their psuedo-piss is completely undetectable, which might be why several states have already banned the stuff.

Added DiffLines:

** Similarly, Irish politicians insist on referring to housing units assembled cheaply and quickly from pre-made parts, like something from IKEA that you could live in, as "modular housing". Definitely not "prefabs", even though the things absolutely are pre-fabricated, because prefabs have a bad reputation.
