    Hi everybody.

    Euphemism is the substitution of a less negative word or phrase for a harsh or

    blunt one, as in the use of pass away instead of die.


    Here mine......

    A bun in the oven.....means pregnant

    Take care
    Huma

    Kick the bucket, bought the farm, and bit the dust are all euphamisms for death.
