    So aside from the usual suspects (grape, plum, etc), what sort of words do we commonly use out of context? For example, I tend to say plum like "retard" a lot more than I'd like as a generic insult, and after taking a trip back in time with George Carlin, I think "cornhole"'s about to make a comeback.


    ... actually now that I think about it, this OP made a lot more sense when I posted it on another forum where words like grape & plum are filters for fuck & shit. Now it just looks like I'm 10.

    Oh well, enjoy. :lol

    - Awkward
    - Random
    - Epic
    - Gay

    Not gonna lie though, I'm guilty of using "epic" quite a bit. It's pretty much my favorite word next to "shit" lol.

    I have the habit of saying epic a lot, even in my mother tongue [portuguese], it's almost a trademark of mine.

    In the grand tradition of the wordfilter of another forum where I participate, I substitute 'gently caress' for 'fuck' during polite conversation. As in, "What the gently caress are you doing?"

    Also, I'm prone to saying "That is so tits."

    Haha, I remember you telling me about that 'gently caress' thing before. Bet it catches some people off guard pretty well, especially afterwards. :)

    I heard "fapping awesome" the other day via youtube, and I think it's very worthy of being adopted.

    I find using the words "brilliant", "excellent" and "wonderful" far too often. I think I should try to employ a wider vocabulary, lest I start sounding even more repetitive than usual.
