* Irish comedian Dylan Moran discusses how, even in modern times, topics such as homosexuality are still dressed with euphemisms.
--->"Well you know what they say about John, don't you?"
--->"Actually, no, I don't. What do they say?"
--->"Well, you know, that he's..." '''(raises right knee into air)'''
--->"...what?"
--->"You know, he's still picking up twigs in the springtime... '''(beat)''' ...he likes his toast done on all three sides."
* Creator/JeffFoxworthy subverted this in a skit where he says that his wife always seems to have whatever disease they're discussing on the news: "You do ''not'' have testicular cancer. You don't even have testiculars!"
* Any verbified noun is a euphemism for drunk, according to MichaelMcIntyre.
--->"Did you have a drink last night?"
--->"Are you joking? I got utterly gazebo'd."
* Creator/PattonOswalt did an infamous bit combining this with GoshDangItToHeck while telling about how producers for network (as in censored) programming wanted the same material he ''usually'' delivered, but in a censor-friendly way. The results were rather disturbing.
-->"I'm gonna fill your hoo-ha with goof-juice!" That is ''[[PrecisionFStrike fucking]]'' '''horrifying'''!
