* Inverted with Creator/DrSeuss books. For instance, in ''HopOnPop'', Dr. Seuss included a line "When I read I am smart / I always cut whole words apart. / Con Stan Tin O Ple, Tim Buk Too / Con Tra Cep Tive, Kan Ga Roo." to make sure his publisher was actually ''reading'' the manuscript. (He was, and the line was changed, as Seuss planned.)

* The most noted example might be ''Literature/AnimalFarm''. Designed to be a criticism of Communism, it had great difficulty finding a publisher, largely because of fears it would undermine the UsefulNotes/WorldWarII alliance between the US, UK, and Soviet Union. If it had been written "straight," it might not have been published; as an allegory about farm animals, it could slide by.

* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'':
** Percy Jackson's Greek Gods is pretty much the epitome of Getting Crap Past the Radar, as it reveals that the gods pretty much lacked morals. There's barely-disguised incest (usually with Percy snarking about it after), bestiality, adultery, suicide, murder, and sexual assault (even getting the word 'rape' past the radar).
** ''The Titan's Curse'': There is a chapter called "I Have a Dam Problem", which takes place at an actual dam. Hilariously enough, many of the characters in the chapter make [[IncrediblyLamePun jokes]] based on the word, "dam", much to Zoe Nightshade's confusion.
** ''The Battle of the Labyrinth'': Hera refers to Percy as "one of Poseidon's... [[LastSecondWordSwap children]]". Percy comments that it's pretty obvious she had a different word in mind.
** ''The Last Olympian'': Percy mentions that a male and a female camper are not allowed to be alone in a cabin together. There's only one plausible reason for that.

** ''Literature/NewJediOrder'': I distinctly remember one scene where Anakin poses as Mara's sex slave for a mission, and she notices a bulge in his pants, right below his belt. Mara concludes that it's a Stokhli stick. For those not familiar with the ExpandedUniverse, a Stokhli stick is a [[FreudWasRight stick-shaped weapon that shoots goop all over its target]]. Worse yet, while this started as a joke, there actually are Anakin/Mara fanfics, including ones where Luke approves of their relationship.

** In ''Winter Turning'', rape is discussed, though not explicitly shown. And [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids this series is marketed towards eight year olds,]] as stated above. Quote: "Sounds twisted, doesn't it?... Especially when you realize that [[spoiler:Arctic]] would never agree to (Having eggs with [[spoiler:Foeslayer]] )..."

** A major plot point in ''Escaping Peril'' is that [[spoiler:Arctic]] was brainwashed into committing suicide by, explicitly, '''disembowelling''' himself. (That method's unnecessary sadism is the main reason why the protagonists disagree about whether or not the perpetrator should be freed.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Literature/DianaTregarde Jinx High]]'' has an in-universe example. The novel is set in the Bible Belt, and the high school prom opens with a Maypole dance. Diana and a minor character who was a hippie in the 60s both recognize the signs of an accurate fertility-ritual Maypole and have to hide laughter. [[spoiler:Until Diana realizes it's the full Sex Magick version instead and finds herself running mystic damage control.]]

* In the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, "The Third Wheel," during the part where Greg reminisces on how he hopes that the guy fixing the toilet wouldn't use it, you can see part of his butt.

* In the novelization of ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: Web of Shadows'', in a scene cut from the animated feature, Nokama and Matau discuss having bestial urges, like building nests. Matau, who was previously shown to have a great affection towards Nokama, inquires whether she has any "urges" that involve him, before the scene ends. In a later story from another saga, Kalmah apparently finds the properties of organic squid, such as their method of breeding, fascinating.

* Outside of Literature/{{Discworld}}, ''OnlyYouCanSaveMankind'' makes passing reference to Johnny's nickname being "Rubber". This looks like just a random bit of absurdism if you don't know [[http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=rubber+johnny what a "rubber johnny" is.]]
