- Rimmer from Red Dwarf

Why the hell is this 'example too short?' I swear, if this one doesn't work, I am going to track down those urbandictionary guys and use their spines as glockenspiels
*Slang- Frequently used as a curse word to exclaim disgust.

*Origin- A result of a very common set of actions in British history, which has in turn caused a very common term.

In medieval times before Britain was the power it is now, their armies would lead merciless wars on any land they desired. Their genocides were worse than any this world has ever known, and were brought to all corners of the world. In their colonization blood flowed like rivers, the earth glowed red and soaked with blood. Their clothing and armor would so frequently become entirely stained with blood, the British military eventually adopted red as their uniform color. This bloody reputation lead to sayings such as "Bloody England". From there it trickled down (like blood) into day to day speech.

A blasphemous curse used by the English and Australians, primarily. It is an old contraction of the phrase "by Our Lady" (meaning Virgin Mary) and is the equivalent in seriousness to "God Damn".

Most people these days have no idea that its origin has anything to do with Virgin Mary.
