Euphemisms You Should Know

Euphemism: a word or phrase used to avoid saying an unpleasant or offensive word.
'Senior citizen' is a euphemism for 'old person'.
The article made so much use of euphemism that often its meaning was unclear.

This one is a winner: Got caught cheating by your wife = Crashing the Escalade.

That's what happens when you get caught with your pants down. Sometimes even literally.
