LOL! That's the whole point! By substituting ridiculous phrases for profanity, the hope is the author refrains from using those words lest he/she also look ridiculous.
I remember being completely nonplussed when someone wrote something and it came out like, "And then he decided that he would ooo, I tried to get around the filter with a nasty word". There was no way a person could even figure out from the context what the nasty word was. To this day I still don't know! But it sure was funny.
I remember another thread where someone was talking about a friend who was a *******. And you couldn't figure that out from the context either. A Canadian? (Our Highlander list's substitute for a word we weren't allowed to use.) I eventually figured it out after reading another thread. But why is gay
allowed (albeit with asterisks) and lesbian
isn't? It gets confusing.
The best was still when someone spoke an entire post about being a "dog irresponsible parent". I was laughing the whole time.
