Trope-a-Day: Oh My Gods

Oh My Gods: Occasionally played straight – although usually invoking one eikone or their attributes by name, rather than a generic exclamation.  (It helps to be specific.)  Not, however, seen in curse-word type invocations – that tends to be invocation of entropy or its aspects, the canonical example being “Shit and waste heat!”

One thought on “Trope-a-Day: Oh My Gods

  1. I really like the idea of invoking entropy as a curse. Indeed, I’ve been known to use “chaos and fire!” myself, which is similar in spirit if a bit tweaked into imprecision for the sake of appropriate euphony.
