Talk:168: Reverse Euphemisms
It should probably be noted that 'dysphemism' is a real word. Though it usually applies to using derogatory terms as opposed to politically correct ones. 184.108.40.206 20:03, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
Why is this not a good example of a reverse euphemism? His kids are shit. The toilet bowl is basically a pool for shit. "Take a shit" translates directly to "Drop kids off at the pool". In a true euphemism, "pass away" translates directly to "died". The two seem similar.
One day I want to be able to really confuse someone by saying "we had to buy some more paint the other day because my dad died" 220.127.116.11 14:48, 28 January 2016 (UTC)Dream
I am unfamiliar with "seeing a man about a horse" meaning "taking a piss". Is there any reason why man and horse are related to urination? 18.104.22.168 16:30, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
