Aw, PIVOT! G-rated profanities and swear-alternatives inspired by Microsoft 365 apps

A while back, I shared some reactions one might see if NBC’s The Good Place deployed Microsoft 365. In the show, profanities are auto-filtered and replaced with something a little more G-rated. For example, “holy sh**” becomes “holy shirt!” So even though PG-13 profanities can’t be used, the characters can still get their emphatic points across.

In that spirit, I present some M365-inspired (but G-rated) profanities and swear alternatives to incorporate into your daily vernacular.
