    Its mostly Miko and Bulkhead, and I believe, on a very rare occasion Arcee. Thank God Jack doesn't say it because he realizes how stupid it is. And bee/ralph doesn't.

    Does anyone get annoyed at this? its almost turning into humor similar to beating a dead horse.

    In fiction? No. Unless the character has a reason for using human swear words, than I prefer they use the robot ones. Afterall, most have no meaning to robots.

    People using robot swears in real life however...

    I think getting annoyed over that is more dumb than the poor 4 lette word itself.

    Well, its not necessarily an annoying word by itself. My problem lies in that, its contageous among the autobots and human allies. They say it too often. When they say it I feel like there is some kind of "OHHHH THERE IT IS, THERE IT IS!" moment.

    Yeah, I know its a play-on for crap. But seriously, its a childish play-on

    here are some of the worse offending instance to me: When Miko and Bulkhead both says it, at the same time. What is this? It isn't a disney movie >.> Oh we are so in-tune with each other since we both say it at the same time!~

    What kind of joyless abominations do you expect children's shows to be?

    It doesn't botherme. Miko only says it because she's imitating her idol Bulkhead, and the others say it because "slag" isn't appropriate all over the world. It's better that they say scrap as opposed to "I'll be a bald eagle!" or "What in Uncle Sam's beard?" all the time.

    No not at all, matter of fact that is non-existent on the list of problems I may or may not have with this show. I would have expected it to be a non issue actually, clearly I expected wrong.
