Definition:

Comical cursing is one way of looking at nittles. It's that nonsensical sequence of squiggles and punctuation marks and symbols that denote curse words or bad language, especially in comics. Think of them as the printed version of bleeping out expletives or perhaps those instances where you're so mad your words just come out as jibberish.

Even some of the symbols that you'll commonly find in nittles have some funny names too: asterisk | ampersand | pling | apetail | hash

Some good clean fun with nittles

Examples:
!#*~@!$ and thousands of variations are nittles that replace cussing in print.
