* ''Film/ZackAndMiriMakeAPorno'' was often listed as simply ''Zack And Miri'', and one poster didn't have the title at all, containing just [[StylisticSuck stick figures]] and the caption "[[LampshadeHanging Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks made a movie so titillating that we can only show you this drawing]]"

* ''Film/ThePopeMustDie'', in which Robbie Coltrane plays a chubby priest accidentally raised to the papacy (who faces an assassination plot as a result). In some markets, retitled ''The Pope Must Diet'' - which, one might argue, is even ''more'' offensive, as now the title goes from trying to kill the Pope to implying that he's fat.

* ''Series/TheEndOfTheFuckingWorld'' uses "F***ing" in it's title though the comic book that it is based on doesn't feel need to censor it's title.

So what to do? The creator can't just change everything. The movie is done, all the dialogue has been recorded, or the song is in the mixing process. At this point, there's just one thing you can do: censor the title. Don't advertise using the word "shit" -- say "crap" or "stuff", depending on how you mean the word. Use acronyms or anything else to cover up the real title. Sure, the work itself is still as offensive as it was before, you just need to pay a little more attention to realize that.
