* Piro and Largo from ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'' say "Fsck!", which is a UNIX command that scans the hard drives for errors and fixes them. Since its usage is [[http://catb.org/esr/jargon/html/F/fscking.html common in hacker culture]], this insult makes sense, since Megatokyo features a lot of influence from the hacker culture.

* Carrie from ''Webcomic/EverydayHeroes'' tries not to swear since she's a religious girl. However, she is occasionally known to exclaim, "Saint Francis University!" [[spoiler: St. F. U.]]* Cardinal in ''FindersKeepers'' uses "Compass and Cross!" as an exclamation of shock and frustration in lieu of swearing. Cailyn, on the other hand, drops regular old-fashioned F-bombs when she's stressed.

* This is yet another unintentionally hilarious element of Christian Weston Chandler's [[SarcasmMode critically acclaimed masterpiece]] ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}''. There are too many examples to list, but suffice it to say that the comic basically has its own vernacular based on the author's unusual usage of English. Examples include "pickle" for penis, "China" for vagina, and "raincoat" for condom. [[TheWikiRule The CWCki]] [[http://sonichu.com/cwcki/CWC-isms has numerous pages about the words Chris comes up with]], [[SchmuckBait if you're]] ''[[SchmuckBait really]]'' [[SchmuckBait interested]].

* ''Webcomic/OneOverZero'' lifted its first character, "Barnacle" Jones, from the comic Absolute Tripe, which introduced him as "the first man in history to seal a fart in a mason jar". The jar came along with Jones, though 1/0 never shows it in-panel. Later in the strip, characters begin using "Jar Breeze" as profanity.
** Junior attempted to use [[NoFourthWall the author's name]] (Tailsteak) as a curse word for a period of time because he reasoned that the author can't bleep out his own name.



* ''Webcomic/NeonIceCreamHeadache'' has several odd terms for drug use, such as "Raking the leaves off the neighbor's lawn", "Sipping ice tea from a Chinese slipper", "Waking up with Winston Churchill", and "Crushing a tiny porcelain poodle with your bare hands".
