* One of the more unintentionally hilarious moments from HowardStern's TV replays of his radio show involved a behind-the-scenes shot of Gary explaining some of the finesse of radio censoring to a guest. The fact that it ends up censored when played on network TV just drives the absurd point home all the better.

* Parodied by FlightOfTheConchords in their song "Mother'uckas". Throughout the song they self-censor themselves by skipping certain letters in swear words, but all it does it just ''highlight'' the swears.

* ''[[LetsPlay/PewDiePie Scare PewDiePie]]'' was almost banned in Singapore, but received an M18 rating after the bleeping/muting of the phrase 'Jesus fucking Christ'. Several other exclamations of "Jesus!" and 'fuck' were left intact, but the two together were deemed unacceptable.

* In a weird example, Music/{{Alt-J}}'s "Hit Me Like That Snare" bleeped the word "fisting", despite the song saying "fuck" a lot completely uncensored.

* Done in ''VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory'', censoring one of [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad]]'s curse words in the line "That is some *bleep*ed up *bleep*, man!" while leaving [[Webcomic/PennyArcade Tycho's]] lines like "Fuck this shit," perfectly audible. Averted by the fact that, according to the voice actors, Strong Bad's VA literally DID say "That is some bleeped up bleep"
** For extra fun, you can go into the options and turn censor bleeps for Tycho on. His subtitles remain censored regardless of what you pick.

** This can be justified by the idea that the foundation is not editing out cuss words but rather sensitive and/or dangerous information that is kept on a need-to-know basis and can be grounds for immediate [[NeverSayDie termination]] if known by unauthorized personel.



* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' The first season was largely censored in America. Replacing words like "crap" and "suck" with "snot" and "stink." Interestingly enough though, both words managed to slip by in the episode "Not Quite Famous" when Bridgette says, "Oh crap!" after destroying Courtney's violin, and when Chris says "and the Killer Bass are totally sucking so far!" Even more baffling is that Bridgette saying, "we already know Tyler sucks," was still changed to "we already know Tyler stinks," in the very same episode.
** 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.

* Infamously, G4's broadcasting of E3 2011 censored "Mr. Caffiene"'s profanity-laden spiel - but the wrong parts of it. Generally, when Mr. Caffeine said "shit", the actual swea[[spoiler:r word would be uncensored but would be imme]]diately followed by two or three seconds of censor bleep.
** The same thing used to happen very frequently in the world of ProfessionalWrestling when the concept of doing everything live with only a 7 second delay was still new and the timing wasn't yet practiced. It happens far less often now, but the TV audience will hear "I think he's a big pile of shit an-----four weeks ago!" while any later rebroadcast will have the censoring put in properly in post production.
*** Speaking of pro wrestling, there was that one time where Fred Durst from LimpBizkit was shown in the audience at a WWE event and he flipped off the camera. [[DamnYouMuscleMemory The production guys tried to censor this by]] ''[[DamnYouMuscleMemory cutting the audio]]'' but leaving the actual picture untouched.

* Sebastian Bach once demonstrated on a VH1 television show how one can say the words "ass" and "hole" on television but not both words in quick succession. To demonstrate, he'd say the word "ass," then, after a long pause, would say "hole" and neither word would be bleeped; then, he'd repeat this over and over with shorter pauses in between until he finally ''did'' get bleeped. After that, he repeated this exercise from the beginning using the words "god" and "damn" with the same exact results.

* At one point, on [[Webcomic/QuestionableContent Pintsize's]] {{Twitter}}, he posts a link of his usual smut, filth, and sanity-destroying material, this containing a laughably small censor bar, with Pintsize remarking in the tweet [[LampshadeHanging "It's a good thing they have that censor bar there. I have no idea what's going on here."]]

* Parodied in a "radio edit" of the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} Christmas song "Carrot for a Cock", "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nu7tNWh1oMM Carrot for a Nose]]", wherein every instance of the word "cock" is [[StylisticSuck badly]] dubbed over by LetsPlay/SimonLane singing the word "nose", yet the rest of the song, including multiple synonyms of said word, are left uncensored.



* Parodied in the "radio friendly" version of the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} song "Carrot for a Cock", renamed "Carrot for a Nose". The offending word in the title is replaced by LetsPlay/SimonLane singing the word "nose" and dubbing it badly over the profanity, even dubbing over [[Music/{{Area 11}} Sparkles*]] who sounds nothing like him. All other offensive words, such as "dong" and "bellend" are left uncensored.
