 >So while that ticket focussed on giving context to the message, this
 ticket is about finding a way to remove its insulting nature.

 I understand that difference however at the same time, I think #14530
 addresses both the context and the content. In the end it was decided to
 keep the "Cheating Uh" message but add context.

 For more see these comments:

 What is or isn't offensive is highly subjective and relies on culture,
 experiences, language, knowledge, etc. For example, your proposal, still
 relies on culture understanding (which I honestly couldn't name which film
 or fully understand the joke).

 One of the great things is that this message can be changed to my
 knowledge, by hooking into to
 wp_die_handler()] or editing the translations for that string specific to
 your site.
