* In ''Literature/CaptainUnderpants'', Harold and George consider creating a crime-fighting urinal named "The Urinator", but remember that such a thing would never be allowed in a children's book.
** Dav Pilkey, the author of ''Captain Underpants'', revealed that the character was almost a real thing, but when he posed the idea to his wife, she responded that he wouldn't be able to get away with it in a kids' book. Pilkey thought the exchange was so funny that he ended up putting it in the story.

Popeye and Bluto look on, flabbergasted, and then say "Well I'll be a --", and at that moment two real-life hands cover their mouths. They finish the sentence silently with a gigantic "CENSORED" over each of their mouths.
