* ClusterFBombClusterFBomb: The book contains many instances of the F word as well as some other swears.

to:

* RefugeInAudacityRefugeInAudacity: It's a children's book spoof about parents being so irritated by their child refusing to sleep that their orders for the child to go to bed are peppered with strong swear words. There aren't many other things as audaciously funny.

It is the lament of a man whose child will not [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin go the fuck to sleep]]. It went [[MemeticMutation viral]] in galleys, and was then helped by an audiobook [[https://youtu.be/nDGKK6y8OtQ?t=1m read by]] Creator/SamuelLJackson (and later on, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3xFZ0A15Bg by]] Creator/WernerHerzog). There is also a YouTube [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBHwmVlP_DE video]] of this book being read by Creator/LevarBurton.

* SceneryCensor: A non-sexual variation; the moon obscures the 'u' and 'c' in "Fuck". [[BleepDammit Even if it's obvious what word it is.]]
