* A ''very'' popular dirty song to allude to in cartoons, that one[[note]]** For anyone who doesn't know the limerick in question, it's [[http://hashhymnal.webcomic.ws/comics/14/ this one]](WARNING: NSFW)[[/note]]. Even ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' gets in on the act, in the episode where [=SpongeBob=] attempts to sing an apology to Squidward onstage at the local opera. He even has his lyrics prepared on a sheet of paper...

** ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'' mentions, "Lord Vetinari seldom had balls. There was a popular song about it, in fact." Perhaps it combines the political commentary of "Hitler Has Only Got One Ball" with the double entendre of [[{{Music/ACDC}} AC/DC's]] "Big Balls".

* The famous whistling scene in ''Film/TheBridgeOnTheRiverKwai'' is an attempt to get "Hitler Has Only Got One Ball" [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar past the radar]]. The song is called the "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonel_Bogey_March "Colonel Bogey March"]] and has been a favorite for adding smutty lyrics to since 1914. It was supposedly inspired by an officer who whistled the first two notes instead of shouting "fore" on the golf course, so the song was insulting even when given its original title. Or not, considering that a "bogey" then, was what we today call a "par". Being called a scratch-player is probably NOT an insult anywhere.\\\
"Colonel Bogey March" inspired a CallBack of sorts about a decade after ''Bridge On The River Kwai'' was released when the Smothers Brothers did a comedic performance of the South African marching tune "Marching to Pretoria" in which they briefly stopped the song to discuss their favorite marching songs. They briefly reference "Colonel Bogey" (which they mistakenly call "March of the River Kwai") and note that you could never sing it because it was all whistling...then surmise that the song's lyrics must have been dirty, which is why they had to be whistled instead. Then, when they start singing again, one of them shifts to whistling just as their improvised lyrics are getting ''really'' naughty, prompting the audience to laugh.

** ''Discworld/SoulMusic'' gives a mention to "Gathering Rhubarb" as a "...song you can snigger along to...". While there are no lyrics given in the book, the Creator/CosgroveHall animated adaptation did include it. The version used in the actual production is cut short, but it can be heard in full (and with transcribed lyrics) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rcPV8fnkQo here]].

Such songs are sometimes used as a nod towards GettingCrapPastTheRadar, a character will be singing a well-known bawdy song and cut off a [[LastSecondWordSwap split-second]] [[OrphanedPunchline before actually singing anything obscene]]. Including snatches of bawdy songs in a scene indicates that characters are becoming relaxed and uninhibited (at the very least). If the song happens to be something as explicit as "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Ship_Venus The Good Ship Venus]]" or "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barnacle_Bill_%28song%29 Barnacle Bill the Sailor]]," they are probably way past just "relaxed".
