* At some point around season 17 at the latest, in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' it became taboo to show any character's bare butt. Apart from ''Simpsons'' usually airing near [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Seth]] [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad MacFarlane]] [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow shows]] which lack this rule, there's other reasons why this doesn't make much sense. Earlier episodes occasionally re-air and are not edited to fit this rule, and there is one point where Bart has an ImagineSpot with a giant gold statue of him mooning -- completely uncovered. So apparantly it's okay to show one's rear as long as it's depicted in a gold (keep in mind many characters in this show, including Bart, are [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation yellow]]) statue that resembles them completely.

One early clipshow episode ended in "hardcore nudity", and featured a montage of all the previous times characters had been naked, including many of the aforementioned butts. This too remains uncensored on reruns.

Added DiffLines:

** Lindsay's freakout at Heather near the end of the season was censored as well. Which is utterly baffling, since the original version was just a long censor bleep. The US version changes the long bleep to an awkward string of very mild insults.

* [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''MalcolmInTheMiddle'' after Malcolm publishes in the school literary magazine a powerful story that has swearing to get the point across. The principal, outraged, says that he will not allow the words "S(bleep)ck my c(bleep)ck" in a school magazine (with his mouth very clearly saying the words) and to put asterisks on them. Malcolm replies "What's the use of censoring it? Everyone knows what they are saying!"

* The ''Creator/{{ESPN}} 30 for 30'' documentary series ''O.J.: Made in America'' censors profanities like fuck and shit, but [[NWordPrivileges nigger]] is left uncensored. This was a very deliberate choice, as the series is just as much a meditation on American race relations as it is a chronicle of the O.J. Simpson murder trial.

* In {{Benzaie}}'s review of ''Hunter'', he makes disparaging comments about games which ''Hunter'' beat to the punch, with increasingly nonsensical censorship.

* The "radio edit" of Kelly's "Let Me Borrow That Top" blanks out all the F-words in the actual lyrics, but leaves in a clear exclamation of "Fuck it!" in the background at one point.

Added DiffLines:

* The clean version of Nicki Minaj's "Truffle Butter" on Spotify for whatever reason completely leaves intact Drake's "I could probably make some stepsisters fuck each other". Every other profanity is blanked out.

** The censorship in DLC is pretty inconsistent when it comes to things other than swearing. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in a Harmonix panel once on what apparently is and isn't acceptable ina T-rated game. [[Music/ThePixies "Some marijuana"]] - not acceptable. [[GratefulDead "High on cocaine" used repeatedly thoughout the song]] - acceptable. [[Music/TenaciousD "Drop trou and squeeze out a Cleveland steamer on my chest"]] - acceptable.

* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', where not only are swears bleeped, but so are certain non-swear words linking to them, such as the "you" in "fuck you" often being bleeped as well.

* The UltimateWarrior's short-lived comic book, ''{{Comicbook/Warrior}}'', has him yelling [[http://www.i-mockery.com/comics/longbox14/pics/awaken.jpg F-F-U-U-C--]] at one point. (How the Warrior is capable of pronouncing the C and not the K can be probably attributed to his [[MartyStu near-divine skills]].)
