* The radio edit of Music/LilJon's "Get Low" censored the line "To all skeet skeet motherfucker, to all skeet skeet goddamn!" with repeated "Skeet skeet skeet skeet skeet skeet". However, "skeet" [[ADateWithRosiePalms is a slang term for semen]], and somehow this is ''less'' explicit than a PrecisionFStrike...
-->'''Creator/DaveChappelle''': You know what's so dope about "skeet"? White people don't know what it means yet! When they figure it out, they're gonna be like 'my God, what have we done?'

* Creator/DavidFincher pulled off something like this with ''Film/FightClub'' (similarly to Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone with ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut''). A producer ordered him to change the bit from [[Literature/FightClub the book]] in which Marla Singer declares, "I want to have your abortion." Fincher agreed on the condition that the change couldn't be vetoed, and the producer took the bait -- but boy did she regret it. The replacement line? "''Oh my god, I haven't been fucked like that since grade school.''"

*** Even the movie's ''title'' was an example of this. Parker and Stone originally wanted to call the movie ''South Park: All Hell Breaks Loose'', but the suits vetoed it on grounds that the title could not contain profanity. The duo sarcastically "Bigger, Longer, and Uncut" as a subtitle, and were flabbergasted when the executives missed the obvious DoubleEntendre.

* Creator/BenAffleck and Creator/MattDamon used an interesting variant in ''GoodWillHunting'', according to producer [[TheWeinsteinCompany Harvey Weinstein]]. The original script pitched to studio executives included an out-of-nowhere homoerotic SexScene between two characters who were never identified as gay. When Weinstein questioned why it was there, Affleck and Damon answered:

*An old Russian joke goes something like this: a young screenwriter complains to his mentor that his script is always turned down by the censoring board. The mentor advises him to insert a scene with a flying green dog. Afterwards, the censors says after reading the new draft: "The script has improved by leaps and bounds, but what's that stupid green dog doing in a work of SocialistRealism? Lose the dog, and you're good to go!"

* In the ''Franchise/{{Starcraft}}'' novel ''Liberty's Crusade'', protagonist Michael Liberty, a reporter, does this to mollify the Confederate censors his news bureau reports to. For instance, he runs a report about a colonial Command Center that had been overrun and [[TheCorruption infested]] by the then-recently-discovered [[BugWar Zerg Swarm]]. In order to get his frank descriptions of the aliens and their methods to air, he put in both a pro-Confederate slant (with shots of colonial soldiers bravely mowing down zerglings) and a censor decoy in the form of a mention that the colony post wasn't on any Confederate maps, which he was sure would be cut. While suspicious-sounded at first, [[TriviallyObvious this is really a meaningless detail]], since Command Centers [[BaseOnWheels can lift off and fly]].
