Unusual Euphemism: Web Original
  • In Dragon Ball Z Abridged, there is an apparent bleeped-out Cluster F-Bomb by Vegeta in episode 19. But in the stinger at the end, they play it uncensored, and turns into a UE-licious Minor Insult Meltdown: note 
    Vegeta: "Son of a gum-chewing funk monster! Why the fruit does all this funny stuff happen to me?! Forget my life! Always surrounded by miserable failing clods! Like this whole world just likes to bend me over and find me in the Alps! Like I'm some sort of slot receptacle! Well as far as I care, these miserable cows can have a fancy barbeque, with a Goddamn pig!"
    • The UE "find me in the Alps" gets used again by Dr. Gero in episode 38.
  • How many of you had heard "fark" before Drew Curtis launched the eponymous website in 1999?
  • Played with in Tales of MU, with actual swearing rendered in the familiar English, but local variants exist to replace such things as "gee" and "gosh."
  • A variation appears in ''Survival of the Fittest' which otherwise averts the trope entirely. When making evalutations of the student files (in-character versions of the student profiles handlers write for the characters), Danya tends to use "motivate" as a euphamism for playing the game/killing. For example "has potential to be a motivator" or "could motivate if given the right incentive."
  • When talking on image boards, be aware that safe driving means breasts that straddle the line of being sent to an alternative board for their immense size.
  • In Stupid Mario Brothers, Ash often says things like "Son of a Bulbasaur".
  • A YouTube ROM Hack reviewer named Azure Blade 49 used "Ferjuckers" as a minced oath several times. In one instance, he even left a comment explaining that he uses this word whenever something doesn't quite call for a WTF.
  • The Gaming in the Clinton Years review of Tomb Raider 2 refers to Lara Croft's breasts as "front-loaded anvils."
  • The Euphemismator
  • The Protectors of the Plot Continuum say things like "Flaming Denethor" or "Jadis in a block of ice", and use "Glaurung" as a substitute for the F-word.
  • Linkara said "What the pluperfect hell has that got to do with Batman?!" in his review of 'The Dark Knight Strikes Again: Part 1.'
    • He also asked, I think in the same review, "What the Flying Dutchman is up with this background?" And his Running Gag of saying "What the Funk and Wagnall?"
  • Let's Player DeceasedCrab can often be heard to exclaim "Bake sale!" when he screws up.
    • Similarly, Seorin's Let's Play of Tsukihime uses the names of breakfast cereals, cookies, and other foods to partially censor the ero scenes. You will never look at breakfast the same way again.
    • Later on, in the epic LP of Sonic 2006, Pokécapn tended to scream "PHYSICS!" whenever he died. It stopped being hilarious after 500 times. But only after.
  • Sara's done the fun in all sorts of places
  • Knock knock. Who's there? You are a shizno.
  • Kit-chan's capsummaries include endless amounts of these! "I would like to 'work under you', Sir.", "Keep an 'apple pie' warm for me!" are two notable ones.
  • You're an apple!
  • In keeping with "number one" and "number two," masturbation has been referred to on the podcast You Look Nice Today as "number three."
  • The Drunk Tank Podcast, by the guys at Rooster Teeth Productions, uses the term "hands" for breasts. Eventually, Geoff refers to a bartender they call "angry boobs" as having "huge, pendulous, beautiful hands."
  • In Death Note: The Abridged Series (Kpts4tv) when Ryuk asks Light for "apples" he's actually asking for sex. Also "Mogi's hoagie" as seen here: [1].
  • In the Netflix original series Orange Is The New Black, one of the possible threats Chapman lists that she might use on Dina is "I'm going to do to you what the Spring does with cherry trees, but in a prison way." This is, as Chapman points out, based on a Pablo Neruda quotation.
  • In Nfl Quarterbacks On Facebook, whenever a quarterback wants to imply the usage of the word, shit, they replace it with Tony Romo, e.g: "So help me, I will beat the Romo out of you," "If I want your opinion, Romo, I'll wipe it off my asshole", So help me Romo, I will put you in a paper bag, light you on fire, and put you on someone's doorstep," "I will Romo in your Uggs, Brady" etc.
  • The Muppets YouTube video "Food Fight" features Gordon Ramsay replacing his trademark Cluster F Bombs with the word "bleep".
    Ramsay: It's the bleeping Muppets! There's families bleeping watching!
  • The Hardcore Kid uses "Smegged up" as a euphemism for "messed up" or "fucked up".
  • Youtube Poops are not shy about swearing, but the nature of sentence mixing sometimes results in Unusual Euphemisms. For example:
    Nazeem (while bending down): What an unfortunate disaster it would be if someone were to somehow rip my clothes and ravage the area.
  • In The Best Worst Pick-up Lines! by Matthew Santoro, Matt refers to the vagina as "the Harry Potter".
