I'm not sure if this counts, so I'm adding it here: Literature (and Film): A Clockwork Orange's narrator, Alex, uses "Bog" instead of "God" (e.g. "Bog and all his holy angels"). The reason I'm not sure if this actually counts is because this is Gratuitous Russian by way of the invented slang used throughout the novel.

I would put that under Gratuitous Russian, unless "bog" means "gods" in Russian.

Does anyone have a source on "Juno's twat"? Because I'm going through a lot of vulgar Latin words coupled with "Iunonis" both before and after, and I'm getting nothing on Google. Are you sure this isn't just something gleaned from Rome?
