“That time of the month” ~ Favorite euphemisms

Saw this on reddit and had to take a look. Below are my favorites, but do look at the full entry. I live just outside of Cincinnati and the best one I have heard was "The Reds are playing downtown." The communists are in the fun house. The Red Square is full of...
