* ReCut: The album received two levels of censoring when it was originally sold, depending on the territory it was released: a censored version and a heavily censored version, which even cut swear words out of reversed portions. Several copies over the years have included songs from different versions on one disc, and a full history of different edits [[http://www.lukpac.org/~handmade/patio/vinylvscds/money.html lies here.]] Supposedly, the monoaural copy of the album on ''The Lumpy Money Project/Object'' is the only time the uncensored album has fully been released, but even that is a very different mix from the original stereo version which fans have grown fond of.

* CensorBox: The collage cut-outs on the album cover have most of the eyes of the (then) living celebrities blackboxed. Zappa also played with this, by even blackboxing the eyes of UsefulNotes/LyndonJohnson and the Statue of Liberty.

* ScunthorpeProblem: When Zappa went to the Netherlands for their equivalent of the {{Grammy Award}}s, he discovered that they had edited the line "And I still remember momma in her apron and her pad feeding all the boys at Ed's café" in "Let's Make The Water Turn Black" because they misunderstood the word ''pad'' (as in a completely harmless ''notepad'') and thought it referred to a ''sanitary napkin''.

** Zappa would re-use the phrase ''What's a girl like you doing in a place like this?'' in "Flower Punk" on ''Music/FillmoreEastJune1971'' (1971), ''Music/SheikYerbouti'' (1979), ''Music/JoesGarage'' (1979) and ''Thing-Fish'' (1985). The band member fantasizing about his royalty check in "Flower Punk" shares a similar theme with Billy being happy about receiving his royalty check in "Billy The Mountain" from ''Music/JustAnotherBandFromLA''.
