* Since {{Xanth}} runs on puns, curse words function as actual curses, most often of the concussive or pyrotechnic type. Part of the reason the Adult Conspiracy (To Keep Interesting Things From Children) exists is that children knowing these words [[FridgeBrilliance actually]] makes them ''dangerous''.

* ''{{Vexxarr}}'': [[http://www.vexxarr.com/archive.php?seldate=071906 Weapons grade pleading?]]
* ''{{Spacetrawler}}'': One guest comic depicts a "Grwfl-grwfl" joke so hilarious that it [[YourHeadASplode causes its hearer's head to explode]]. An entire [[PlanetOfHats joke-obsessed species]] is listening via radio, eagerly anticipating the funniest joke ever--and they're completely wiped out in seconds. (Fortunately for the rest of the galaxy, the punchline relies on terminology that died with that species, so it has no effect on anyone else.)
