** ''Discworld/NightWatch'' has a Sergeant who doesn't swear for religious reasons, so uses this trope to compensate. At one point he calls a bunch of militia recruits "You sons of mothers!".

* The ''Film/CarryOn'' films seemed to ''invert'' this trope by making swear words sound like normal conversation. To name a few, "[[Film/CarryOnDick the Blasted Oak]]", "[[Film/CarryOnAgainDoctor the Bleeding Ceremony]]" and "[[Film/CarryOnDick the Old Cock]]" -- the first and last being a street and a pub, and the one in the middle being the name of a wedlock ritual. Say these three phrases out loud like it's a parenthetical swear if you don't believe us.

* Commander Peepers in [[WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder]] episode "The Fremergency Fronfracts" always, ''always'' addresses Lord Hater as "sir", no matter what. But after an indeterminate period of time during which he was drugged and suggestible, spent with the fun loving good guy Wander, Hater opened fire on his own troops, injuring all of them. So when Hater comes to and professes his memory of doing so must have been just a dream, Peepers' response of "If only, sir," makes that last word sound like he would have used something else if not for Hater retaliating (and, y'know, DisneyXD standards).
