* The VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing Item-of-the-Month "My Own Pen Pal kit" finds you an (NPC) penpal, who sends you a rather MadLibs-like letter with an item attached to it each day. One of the sentences that might be generated is about a teacher who told him that if you ignore a bully, he'll leave you alone, and that his dad says it's "a crock of bullcrap (except he didn't say bullcrap, he said a bad word)".

* An NPC in ''VideoGame/LEGOMarvelSuperHeroes'' does this as a ShoutOut to ''Film/SnakesOnAPlane'':
-->'''NPC''': Director Fury told me specifically to 'get these snakes off this gosh-darned Helicarrier'. I may be paraphrasing slightly.

** Ebling Mis from ''Foundation and Empire'' frequently says "Unprintable". This is assumed to be an example of the trope, but it is kind of funny when one thinks he's actually saying unprintable. He is described as being foulmouthed though.

* ''Film/AChristmasStory'' does this in two ways. Ralphie's "Old Man" is noted to be a champion of vulgarity, but all of his tirades are rendered into meaningless {{angrish}}. The worst he gets off is a "son of a bitch." In another scene, Ralphie accidently lets slip, "Oh... ''fudge''!" The narrator clarifies that he didn't actually say "fudge," he said the real "eff dash dash dash word."

* During Creator/ClintEastwood's "invisible Obama" performance at the 2012 Republican National Convention, Eastwood asked the nonexistent President, "What do you want me to tell Romney?" After pretending to listen for a moment, Eastwood said, "I can't tell him to do that! He can't do that to himself," [[DontExplaintheJoke implying that the phantom Obama had told Romney to go fuck himself.]]

* For the "replaced the curses with another word" variety: ''Film/AChristmasStory'' and "fudge".
* The in-universe version is used in ''Film/{{Speed}}'', when the main character is examining the bomb underneath the bus and one of the civilians on the bus is repeating what he says over a radio: the hero [[PrecisionFStrike swears in shock]] at something he sees, and the meek-looking office worker instead translates it as "Oh darn".

Easy. Just say ''that'' the character swore, without going into exactly ''what'' he said.

* ''Film/DonnieDarko'' features an annoying teacher who forces Donnie and the other students to engage in an absurd "character-building" exercise. Donnie rebels and deconstructs the whole exercise, so the teacher simply tells him he will get zero. Donnie's mouth opens and the camera cuts away to Donnie's parents at the principal's office, listening to a droning report on Donnie's behavior. The teacher tells them, "(Donnie) asked me to forcibly insert the lifeline exercise card into my anus." Cue a FunnyBackgroundEvent as Mr. Darko starts laughing and chokes as he tries to hold it back.
