Unusual Euphemism: Web Animation

  • Homestar Runner characters are notorious for made-up swears:
    • In the Show Within a Show Teen Girl Squad, Tompkins often uses the expression "Aw peas!".
    • Strong Bad has used "bulltonk" and "bullhonkey", the latter later being turned into the name of an energy drink (a parody of Red Bull).
    • "What the pfargtl?!" is used once and referenced within the same episode as the acronym "WTPF."
    • Homestar Runner himself refers to his butt as his "tweese", even though he's actually said "butt" before (apparently it's a shortened form of "buttweesimo"). He has also said, "Sweet genius, that hurt!"
    • Marzipan then later calls Strong Bad a horse's tweese.
    • Strong Sad has peculiar elephant feet. He calls them "soolnds".
    • In the DVD commentary for the sbemail "technology", Matt says "parg" when Mike tells him to swear.
    • In one halloween special, after Bubs and Coach Z come to the door, their response to the candy they get:
      Bubs: Aww, zagnut!
  • Pimp Lando has its title character's catchphrase, "What the foo?!?"
  • In Bonus Stage, upon discovering Craig has slept with Rya:
    Joel: Holy snap. You weren't supposed to... count the sheep with her.
    Phil: You call sex "counting the sheep"?
    Joel: I call everything that. Including people. Sheep.
  • Except for the first episode of Petera Dzive, called ņabisnote , the alcoholic drink that frequently appears in the series is always referred to as "the brew" in subtitles. The bottles of Brew are always labelled dzira, meaning "swill."
