** On top of that, there are parodies of similar kids' books that reflect what the parents are really thinking, like ''Go the Fuck to Sleep'' and ''You Have to Fucking Eat''.



* Abbie Hoffman's ''StealThisBook'' famously caused stores to resist stocking it out of fears that commie-loving hippies would take the bait. To be fair to the stores, the book is in fact mostly an instruction manual on civil disobedience, including sections on how to shoplift.

* ''Literature/BimbosOfTheDeathSun'' features an author who's all but disowned his own sci-fi novel because it got saddled with...well, ''that'' title and a ContemptableCover to match, thanks to the third-rate publisher. The actual book is perfectly good sci-fi, and it's not disrespectful to women at all, but he's afraid that if the feminists on campus find out about it, he'll catch Hell.

* Creator/StephenColbert's books ''Literature/IAmAmericaAndSoCanYou'' and ''America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren't'' abuse bad grammar for laughs.

* FeliciaDay has coined the term "Vaginal Fantasy" as a tongue-in-cheek description of urban or historical fantasy fiction that is aimed at women and prominently involves romance and/or sex. Once a month, she'll discuss such novels with her friends in a Google+ Hangout On Air, and also post the discussion to YouTube - naturally it can be awkward mentioning that you were just watching something called "Vaginal Fantasy Hangout #2".

* ''WebVideo/StripSearch''; a talent ''search'' for comic ''strip'' artists. The other meaning is never referred to, but considering [[WebComic/PennyArcade the creators]] are known for enjoying crude humor...



* Similar to the ''Time Fcuk'' example in the Video Games section, clothing designer French Connection sometimes brands itself "fcuk" (because the company is based in the UK). This caused some controversy when high school girls would wear their brands to school.

** "Smexual" videos [[note]]pure-audio videos of audio clips, usually from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', spliced together to yield ridiculous, over-the-top, often CrossesTheLineTwice events, often remade into ''VideoGame/GarrysMod'' videos[[/note]] often have titles as absurd as the events within them. For example: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWtspkIntig mentally_defective_sniper_on_serious_cocaine_addictions.piss.mp4.ogg]]," "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bOzu49KKrE the_misleading_book_adventures_of_the_endangered_goggam_engineer_and_his_fuckmates.this]]," and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAdZ3jE8zKs psychically_unstable_merasmus_and_his_wacky_roommates.cornflakes]]."



* Website/{{Reddit}} features a series of forums called the "SFW Porn network." This is simply meant in the sense of SceneryPorn or FoodPorn, gorgeous pictures of the subject. (Popular entries include "Space Porn" and "History Porn.") It is often subject to complaints because, even though the pictures are innocuous, you'll still have something named "Porn" in your browser history, which can cause trouble at work or with your network firewall. For ''extra'' bonus awkwardness points, there are entries entitled "Animal Porn" and "Human Porn."

*** It happened again for the game after that which focused around four player co-op: [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankAll4One All 4 One]] was originally going to be subtitled as ''Ratchet & Clank: 4-Play'' until it was presented to Sony.

* NoiseRock band AIDS Wolf. They've given differing explanations of the name: 1) there was a supposed UrbanLegend about AIDS-infected wolves attacking pets, which would then pass it on to humans, 2) they wanted to make a convoluted ShoutOut to two of their influences, An Albatross and The Sick Lipstick, by putting both an animal and an illness in their name, or 3) it's "a message that we as humans must take care for our animal siblings as their health is a barometer of our own survival".
