General Motors issued an internal warning to its staff, commanding them not to use certain words. The prohibited lexicon is quite horrible, with more than a little Gothic in the mix.
Consider: decapitate. Deathtrap. Rolling sacrophagus. Disemboweling. Mangling.
CNN, always keen on the Gothic, picks these terms:
Among the "Judgement words" employees were told to avoid: "Hindenburg," "powder keg," "Titanic," "apocalyptic," "You're toast," and "Kevorkianesque."
We at Infocult admire the GM staff for their splendid word choice.
