* 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".

** In the [[CelestialBureaucracy Department of Minor Nuisances]] the official term for such things is [[http://rhapsodies.wpmorse.com/comic/01102013/ "Mutual Experience"]]



* A spoof cover "Warriors #4" ([[TakeThat "Wonder Woman has a date!"]]) by Axel Medellin. Generic Valkyrie, possibly Sif, to WW: "Are you sure that you want to show your 'Valhallas' on the first date?"

* Nick Zerhakker in ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'' has censoring software put in him, which substitutes similar but clean words much like broadcast versions of movies do. Its choices are getting increasingly baffling.

** Then there's the time Unity is in New Orleans and calls Tip and Sweetheart.
--->'''Unity:''' Me, I'm stuck here punchin' the gator.\\
'''Sweetheart:''' What... does that even mean?\\
'''Unity:''' I totes cannot make this clearer. I am punchin' this gator.\\
'''Sweetheart:''' ''Oh''.\\
'''Unity:''' In the ''face''.\\
'''Sweetheart:''' ''[to Tip]'' It's so hard to tell when Unity is euphemizing.\\
'''Tip:''' Like when she throttled that bishop?

* In ''{{Erfworld}}'', Parson finds that any cussword he attempts to utter (and he attempts to utter several immediately after being summoned) comes out as "boop". Apparently, the [[RPGMechanicsVerse "game mechanics"]] that govern Erfworld include a profanity filter.

* In the Jenniverse, starting with ''UnicornJelly'', odd runes were used where the offending words were used, but a more common and understandable version was the multi-purpose 'Farg'. Since the language they spoke was supposed to be a compromise of mostly english and some other languages, [[JustifiedTrope this makes sense]].

* ''TheCyantianChronicles'' has "Squid", which is used as a catch-all curse word for cyantians. Normal curse words get censored. The origin of "Squid" as a swear word comes from the period where the whole of Cyantia was enslaved by the Moulin Phedra, who happened to look a lot like Squid.

* Leslie from ''FriendlyHostility'' uses *swear* as the author does not know a word strong enough for him to say.
* We get the amusing "poofers" in the webcomic ''HamstaPowah''. The idea behind the word is that, due to the fall of humanity and small creatures artificially evolving as the new intelligent race (so far, hamster, mice, rat, squirrel, and rabbit furries have been seen), new swear words have popped up. "Poofers" translates to "crap" or "shit" when used in conjunction with disapointment at something happening. A notable example is when Sam said "Oh, poofers" before being hit with the tornado from Hiate's [[CallingYourAttacks Sky's Fury]] summon.

** Possibly Averted/Subverted/Funny Aneurysm/Did Not Do the Research in that 'poof' is a British slur against a homosexual man; particularly one that exhibits effemenate mannerisms. Calling someone a 'poofer' (particularly in the 1960's, as in modern parlance it becomes 'poofter') is a distinctly nasty thing to do, but not particularly unusual.
* In a ''{{Lackadaisy}}'' side comic, the author points out how some fans wonder if [[DeadpanSnarker Zib]] "is a viper", having a "Texas tea party", doing the "golden strut", "kicking the gong around", "copping a deuceways", "courting the white lady", and having a "whizbang good time". [[spoiler: They're all euphemisms for drug use.]]

* This is the sole purpose of one character from [[http://www.sexylosers.com/strips.html Sexy Losers]] who is only called Touro's friend (swearing). The creator acknowledged that his speech kind of makes sense but really doesn't it's just meant to sound insulting and use a lot of swearing. He's given us such gems as "Yeah spooge mouth. You fuck cows in retrospect" and "Yeah fuckwit you shit for sale."

* ''SuicideForHire'' got one in a ContinuityNod: an early comic depicted a fully-clothed TalkingAnimal turtle. Clothes have to be a weird shape to fit over a shell, and this got a LampshadeHanging with an author's note reading "Don't ask me how turtle shirts work. They just do." In a more recent strip, Arcturus sees something shocking and yells "What the ''turtleshirt'' is this?!"
* ''{{Terinu}}'' makes frequent use of "Frell" (borrowed from ''Farscape'') and "Fragg", both standing in for the usual F-word. WordOfGod reports that "Fragg" came from her husband's attempt to not swear in front of their children, instead substituting ''Fraggle Rock''!
* ''ThinkinLincoln'' has the occasional use of lines such as "What the crumpet" and "Son of a birch."
* ''TheWotch''. Anne Onymous often says "fish sticks!" instead of a more objectionable expletive.
* The {{Walkyverse}} gives us "Cheese" and "Cheesus" in place of God in most contexts. "The Cheese" is a nickname for a godlike entity in the 'verse, which half-explains it, but several characters with no idea who the Cheese is use it from time to time.
