If anybody references a map: “Magic s'map!”

I just noticed this. I do that a LOT whenever anyone mentions a map, I'll just say "SMAP!" and...well, no one has questioned it yet. XD

That's awesome. I might also consider expressing my surprise with "Zounds!" from here on out.

(Note: I know it's technically "S'wounds".)

Yeah, but the real curse is a really dirty one.  I prefer "zounds." ;)

"S'wounds" is derived from "His wounds", referring to Christ, I think. How is that dirty?

It's short for "Christ's Wounds."  I just don't like it.  It offends me. ;)

Oh yeah! And

When someone says something stupid: "Be all you mad?  What aileth thee!"
If there's something that glaringly red nearby: "Nice!  Bright red!"

Wouldn't zounds be the offending then aswell since it is derived from that?

Not necessarily... it's like saying crap for the s-word. :yes: Though I have known people *eyes his high school* who felt that crap was just as bad as other 4-letter words... but then they also treated "shut up" as though it were profanity (only demerit I ever got... worth it though... kid needed to shut up).

Anywho, euphemisms clearly occupy a lower energy state in terms of the energy of offense. :P (Of course, if your threshold is set lower anyway, that won't matter.)

but the meaning behind the word is the same even though he/she uses an euphanism. you could still replace it with the origional meaning. Only reason I can think of using an euphanism is to not let those that don't know the euphanism (childeren in most cases) know that you are actually meaning something else. But once both the person that uses the euphanism and the person that hears it knows what it actually means I see no real difference then using the origional word  :-\

Like when you using a random word like chips instead of a curse. so you won't teach your child cursing, it goes well till your child finds out that everytime you say chips you actually mean something else, then the child knows you are just cursing all the time.

From King's Quest 5:
Gets a drink after being thirsty "Ah, life giving water"
Catching my bro playing with himself, then me telling him, "Talking to yourself again, Graham?"  :D
Asking my bro to open his door, "Open Sesame" (knock, knock, knock).
Found something perculiar, "What's this?"
Prevent bro from entering passage way, "It cost one gold coin to see madame Mushka"

This is how much KQ influenced my life!

When someone says something stupid: "Be all you mad?  What aileth thee!"
If there's something that glaringly red nearby: "Nice!  Bright red!"
When my ex was being stupid I used to say "Four morons do I sleep with nightly!"
Also, sometimes if someone impresses me I say, "Like you I do! Go I with you?" They usually think it's a Yoda reference. :(

The game I quote the most though is probably Quest for Glory 1: "Self, you says, that wasn't so bad." (It's from when you fall off the castle wall if you climb over it during the night. :P) I say that in pretty much any situation where I've survived injury to myself... something that happens daily as I'm kind of clumsy. :P
"If your translation is correct, that was 'May a sleepy hippopotamus lie down on your house keys,' but you’re not sure. Unfortunately, your fluency in griffin-speak is too low."

We're roleplaying in the King's Quest world: come join in the fun!

Oh my gosh, how could I forget that one?! I probably use that one more than any of the ones I listed! :o Jeez!  I knew I was forgetting an important one....

Ha, yeah, I've said that one a couple of times, too.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Or when asking someone where they are going. "Where are you going? Where are you going to? Like you I do! Go I with you?"

Which is, you know, just expanding it, but it works.

This is Nifty, Royal Heir.

I'm like, an adult now or something? Sounds fake, but okay.

'Tis beyond my reach' is used quite a lot ;)
'What's this, a celestial globe?' (but only used with my friend who played the game with me and understands the in-joke) otherwise it'd just sound crazy ;)

Did she ever ask about the other three?
