* ''Series/TheGrandTour'''s eleventh episode is literally titled "[censored] to [censored]". For those wondering, it's about a trip from [[spoiler:Wank, Germany]] to [[spoiler:Fucking, Austria]].

Added DiffLines:

* Some Music/GGAllin album and song titles were censored for retail stores. ''Eat My Fuc'' became ''E.M.F.'' and the original album art (a crude drawing of a penis; GG claimed he traced his own member for the cover) was changed to a photo of GG.
** ''Hated in the Nation'' had the majority of the song titles censored. This was usually done by using abbreviations (e.g., "Drink, Fight, and Fuck" became "D F & F") or dropping the offending word or phrase, such as "I Wanna Fuck Myself" being listed as "Myself." However, two songs' censored names strayed from this formula:
*** "Eat My Diarrhea" was awkwardly renamed to "Eat My Leftovers."
*** "Ass-Fuckin' Butt Suckin' Cunt Lickin' Masturbation" became the more sophisticated "Multiple Forms of Self-Satisfaction."

* "Star Star" by Music/TheRollingStones was originally "Starfucker" but changed at the insistence of the record label. The chorus is still a huge ClusterFBomb though, and the band always refer to the song as "Starfucker". (Atlantic Records distributed the label's releases. Ahmet Ertegün actually wanted them to also change the lyrics... to remove mentions of Creator/SteveMcQueen, Creator/JohnWayne and Ali [=McGraw=], since he was afraid they would sue.)

* The TV adaptation of the book ''Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea'' had its title shortened to ''Are You There, Chelsea?'' This one's particularly JustForFun/{{egregious}} because a) "vodka" isn't profanity (though the edit could have been done to appease censors who think that mentioning alcoholic beverages could encourage younger viewers to drink or be considered insensitive to recovering alcoholics -- ''yes'', it's PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad) and b) ''it completely changes the title's intended meaning'', considering the premiere episode starts with the main character in jail for DUI.

* The fourth episode of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' ("Bastards, Cripples, and Broken Things") was edited on UK's Sky EPG as "...And Broken Things." Editing "bastard" is understandable (especially in the UK) as it is a curse word. "Cripples," however, isn't offensive...except in this case, where it's used as a derogatory term for someone who is handicapped or otherwise not able-bodied (like the above example editing the "vodka" in ''Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea'', it's yet another example of PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad). As with most modern TV series, GoT does not actually display episode titles on screen anyway.

** There was also the ''You Got Served'' parody episode whose official title was ''already censored'' ("You Got F'd In The A"), but still had a couple other cleaner titles, such a "You Got Served" or simply "You Got..." In Britain, it's called "You Got ------ in the ----" on the Sky TV guide.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' episode "The Show That Dare Not Speak Its Name" was originally titled "Cubix Rube." It was probably changed because of legal issues (the creator and/or owner of Rubix Cubes threatened to sue over use of the name without express written permission, even if it's a spoonerism), rather than being vulgar or sexual.

Added DiffLines:

* The documentary "Wreckage and Rape: The Making of ''Film/{{Alien 3}}''" first had the former part of the title cut out (it was the only of the four movies breaking the format "[[ShortTitleLongElaborateSubtitle _____: The Making of Alien ___]]") for the DVD release on ''Alien Quadrilogy'', and when in the ''Alien Anthology'' Blu-Ray was "Wreckage and Ra'''g'''e". Presumably "Wreckage and Rape" ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtUUxu0QiyM taken from the film's soundtrack]]) naming the behind-the-scenes to a TroubledProduction filled with ExecutiveMeddling felt as a TakeThat for Fox, who even demanded various changes in the ''Quarilogy'' version to remove parts where things painted a too unflattering image of the studio (thankfully, they allowed the original cut to appear on ''Anthology'').
