Different writeup for the DMV
* [[http://jalopnik.com/5113782/50-vanity-plates-that-slipped-by-the-dmv There's so much crap you can get past the DMV when you want a vanity license plate...]], ranging from using decorative elements of the plate design to produce "moose knuckle", "ass orgy", or "eat the kids first", to using in-jokes and obscure abbreviations to get "[[HotMom MILF hunter]]" or "deeze nuts" past the DMV.

Or you can use markings on the car itself to get "GIVE ME A (Hummer)". Or you can just hope that the person processing your request isn't familiar with "BUKKAKE" or "MLFHNTR". Or you can try for RefugeInAudacity with "NGGA PLZ", "WTF OMG", or "ILUV-ANL".

moving some stuff to the proper media section, and the Fuchs entry was just as likely to be "didn't realize it at the time" as an intentional Hidden Entendre
* Series/{{Watchdog}} is a British magazine-format consumer-interest show. In one episode two presenters were investigating a scam. The dialogue went like this -->First Presenter: These guys are masters of the bait and switch. -->Second Presenter: Master switchers then? -->First Presenter: And [[ADateWithRosiePalms baiters]].

* The ESPN College Gameday show is filmed live on the campus of the school hosting the most interesting college football game that week, in front of a live audience of drunken rowdy fans. Many hold up very large vulgar cardboard signs in the hopes of getting them on TV. [[http://topcultured.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/ESPN-Penis-Cropped.jpg Many succeed.]]

* When the British explorer Sir Vivian Fuchs returned from one expedition, and it was announced he was about to leave on another, the newspaper headline reported it as "Sir Vivian Fuchs off again." * [[TournamentPlay Professional]] ''VideoGames/SuperSmashBrosMelee'' player Kevin Nanny originally went by the name "Dr. [=PeePee=]" within the ''Smash'' community, [[ExecutiveMeddling but when he got sponsored, he had to change it]]. His new name? [[StealthPun PPMD.]]

Cleanup of "other"
* Many connective items, especially power and A/V cables, have ends referred to as "male" and "female". The male end goes into the female end. Yeah...

* Mixed example, on a ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' sponsorship bumper for ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eu2ISZHmv68&feature=channel&list=UL here]]: -->'''Kyle''': ''This program is brought to you by ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', the trading card game of strategy and imagination'' -->'''Kenny''': (Muffled) ''[[BitingTheHandHumor It's so fucking gay]]'' ** Doubles as a TakeThat (towards [[ExecutiveMeddling Comedy Central]], see video description) * [[http://jalopnik.com/5113782/50-vanity-plates-that-slipped-by-the-dmv There's so much crap you can get past the DMV when you want a vanity license plate...]]. ** This was subverted in the 1980s when New Brunswick became notorious for issuing a series of plates with the "ASS" combination. 900 sets of plates of this series were issued, but since they were unusable, they were sold as scrap, and today they are rare collectors' items. * During the ''USS Pueblo'' incident at the height of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, where a naval reconnaissance ship and its crew were captured by North Korea, Commander Lloyd M. Bucher was tortured and mock-executed in an effort to get him to confess to wrongdoing. Eventually, when they threatened his crew, Bucher wrote a confession and, since they had no one fluent in English, they could only translate individual words to make sure what he was writing was a confession. He wrote "We paean the North Korean state. We paean their great leader Kim Il Sung." The North Koreans missed the urination pun.

* Professional baseball players usually write their uniform number on the handle end of their bats. Bill Ripken (Cal's brother) once wrote "Fuck Face" on the knob of one of his batting practice bats to help him identify it quickly. When a Fleer photographer snapped Ripken's photo for his [[http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/18j5swmkiqp5ijpg/original.jpg 1989 Fleer card (#616)]], Ripken forgot that he was holding a bat with an obscenity on it. The photographer failed to notice it, as did apparently everyone else at Fleer, as the photo made it all the way onto the final version of the card (though it has been rumored that Fleer noticed the obscenity and let it pass [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity in order to create publicity]]). ** And then there's Billy Martin's 1972 Topps card (#33), where he's [[https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-BWJnT5wmGd4/TXQx7ldtOvI/AAAAAAAADcQ/jF3Y6oHnRI0/s1600/72martin.jpg obviously flipping the bird]]. * A much celebrated result in game theory and theoretical computer science is that calculating the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nash_equilibrium Nash Equilibrium]] of games with at least three players is more difficult than previously thought. The title of the paper? [[http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=10.1.1.132.788 ''Three-player Games Are Hard'']].

* German model railway accessories firm Preiser sells pre-painted figures to slot into your layout. These generally focus on unremarkable examples of human life: pedestrians, policemen, dog-walkers, farmers, postmen, shoppers, labourers, people waiting for trains to put on the station platform, etc. But the range also includes naked sunbathers, [[http://www.preiser-figuren.de/preiser-28124-1:87-beim-ausziehen-preiser-28124,art-22860 exhibitionists]], [[http://www.preiser-figuren.de/preiser-28089-1:87-beim-frisieren-preiser-28089,art-17365 voyeur objects of fixation]], streakers, [[http://www.preiser-figuren.de/1:87-Bewegte-Figuren-1-87-Sexy-Liebespaar-auf-Decke--bewegt-incl.-Antrieb-fuer-14-16V,art-536 couples ''in flagrante'']] and [[http://www.amazon.com/LADY-FLASHING-PREISER-SCALE-FIGURE/dp/B001SG5O60 other slightly outrageous designs]].

* ''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'': Though the comic and the show are no stranger to mature content at all, the creators apparently do not see themselves as having [[NWordPrivileges N-word privileges]], and so when the word is shown on a spider's web in the ''Literature/CharlottesWeb'' parody skit, it's shown mirrored as opposed to directly. Worth noting is the fact that every single other vulgar word the spiders write is shown legibly.

Cut the "fan works" section — fanfiction generally doesn't have a radar to get past.
[[folder: Fan Works]] * ''Fanfic/TheLionKingAdventures'' ** The scene in ''Switching Places'' where Simba and Nala discover that they're in each other's bodies. -->'''Nala:''' Wait! That's not my voice! That's not my fur! Those aren't my paws! And ''that'' definitely isn't mine! ** In ''Hypnotic Glint'' while Mufasa is tied up in the jungle: -->'''Mufasa (thinking):''' This reminds me of the time Sarabi and I... well, let's just say it resulted in Simba's birth. * ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' is justified in this regard, imitating a children's show on Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}. ** One early episode has two crooks trying to get away from the cops.

Needless to say, Calvin didn't stay there long. ** "Cyberboy": *** Socrates gets a PM from someone, but he can't understand most of it because it's in Japanese. "But the little bit I am picking up is just downright filthy!" *** From the same episode, during a phone conversation between Calvin and Andy (though we only hear the former's side): [[SickAndWrong "Andy, that's just wrong, you know that, don't you?"]] * In the ''Anime/SonicX'' fanfic ''FanFic/DontKeepYourDistance'', an idle computer monitor belonging to the minor character Henry Mikolajczak is described: "A couple of pop-up ads of barely clad human women, playing cards, and gambling chips were plenty showy on the margins..." * In ''Fanfic/BlythesLittleProblem'', Blythe - who turned into a cat - gets a chip put in her neck by a vet. She is quite startled about it. --> Blythe: He put the '''what''' in my '''what'''?! [[/folder]]

** A rather risqué example was StephenFry on the 30th anniversary special in 2002. In the "Uxbridge English Dictionary" round, in which panellists give "alternate" definitions of English words, Stephen offered "Countryside: to kill Piers Morgan".

** But the crowning moment of getting crap past the radar was this, in their ''[[SonicTheHedgehog Sonic and the Black Knight]]'' coverage (9/08 issue, of course). --->'''Steve Thomason:''' [With Sonic's new sword skills], he'd probably make a good guest fighter in the next ''{{Soulcalibur}}'' game. Hey, it'd be less absurd than Ivy's... um... "enhancements".
