* Creator/JohnCleese (of Creator/MontyPython / Series/FawltyTowers fame) once described this trope in an interview, by explaining that the art of making swear words ''funny'' is to avoid using them... until the exact moment in the script when it will be most effective. A comedy with gratuitous swearing ends up desensitising the audience to the words in question, meaning they lose a lot of their amusement. But if you go for fifty minutes without a single swear word, then suddenly have a character say "shit", the swear word becomes instantly more amusing, because the audience has been conditioned not to expect it up to that point.
** The eulogy that Cleese delivered for Graham Chapman is a wonderful example of this. The best quote: "Alright, Cleese, you're very proud of being the first person to ever say "shit" on British television. If this service is really for me, just for starters, I want you to be the first person ever at a British memorial service to say fuck!" The audience, which included the rest of the Pythons, was suitably delighted. The service ended with a rousing chorus of "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsHk9WC7fnQ Video here.]]
* During the recording of Queen's "The Show Must Go On", Brian May was concerned that due to Freddie Mercury's condition and deteriorating health, he wouldn't be physically able to handle the highly demanding vocals required. At the time, Freddie couldn't even physically stand up by himself. Freddie's response was to down a measure of vodka and proclaim "I'll fucking do it, darling!" - he nailed the vocals ''in one take'', making it double as both a CrowningMomentOfAwesome ''and'' CrowningMusicOfAwesome.

* In a celebrity roast of Creator/TomHanks, the host spoke of how he'd watched Hanks' rising success as a comedy actor, then as a serious lead, and finally as the star of new classics like ''Saving Private Ryan''. He was modest about his own jealousy over Hanks' initial successes, but when he spoke of seeing his performance in this last film, his only possible reaction was an envious "''Motherfucker!''"

** Not just to an attacker, but to themselves. Self-defense teachers often say that the hardest thing to do is to convince women that it's OK to hit someone (most are afraid to, believing that it's not polite or ladylike.) By screaming an F-Bomb at the attacker, they're saying to themselves, "Screw ladylike, I need to protect myself by any means necessary."

Still, this [[LargeHam hammy]] BunnyEarsLawyer almost never swears. Lately, during his latest appearance in a stand-up comedy act, he broke his own rule in one of the last lines of his [[TakeThat takethat-tastic]] song aimed at Silvio Berlusconi:

** Freeman was a guest on the Graham Norton Show in January 2012. [=BBC1=] was midway through airing Season 2 of ''Sherlock.'' When Norton announced they had a clip from the next episode to show, but that "You don't say a lot in it... you ''don't'' say a lot..." Freeman's response was a casual "Fuck you, I won a BAFTA." He was the only person in the studio who didn't fall out of his chair laughing, and the phrase has become a MemeticMutation.
