Godfrey NROC Notes("woman") and Bible-thumper ("Christian"). Many profanities are dysphemisms. Taboo words that refer to the genitals, sexual acts, and bodily functions (such as crapper for "toilet") are also dysphemisms. Crude phrases referring to death, such as "kicked the bucket" or "worm food," are dysphemisms as well. Dysphemisms are usually used for the purpose of provoking a humorous response or getting a negative reaction from listeners, viewers, or readers.
