* Speaking of Website/{{Youtube}}, there is a ''lot'' of porn on there despite the site's policy against it. This is because the stuff that gets away with it is mostly fetish porn, which might not involve nudity or explicit sex but is still in something of a grey area regarding the "No porn" policy.

* With all this talk of web videos, one can't help to point out that Website/{{Youtube}} itself has a ''lot'' of porn on there despite the site's policy against it. This is because most of it is fetish porn, which might not involve nudity or explicit sex but is still in something of a grey area regarding the "No porn" policy.

* Magazine/TotalGamer was an Australian A4 sized video game focused magazine that was [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids apparently]] targeted at kids. It was sold in the same sections you would find other children's magazines such as Magazine/K-Zone. The biggest difference however was that TG was filled with satirical humor, articles on things like a gang war that broke out in Ireland over a PlayStation and the editor sometimes giving some less than friendly responses such as calling a kid out on mispelling "hedgehog".

* The September 2008 issue of ''Magazine/NintendoPower'' (TheOneWith [[FridgeLogic Sonic the Hedgehog on the front]]) is chock-full of this. First, their review of ''VideoGame/FatalFury 2'' refers to [[{{Gainaxing}} "bouncy ninja girl"]] Mai Shiranui. They also had the guts to show a picture of [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Walter Peck]] with the caption, "Yes, it's true. This man has no Wii."

* [[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...]]. For example, you can use features of the license plate to get "(picture of a moose) KNUKL", "(University of Michigan 'M') ORONS", "A55 (Florida orange) RGY", or the ever-popular "EATTHE (Kids First)". 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".
* The ''USS Pueblo'' incident at the height of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, where a naval reconnaissance ship and its crew were captured by North Korea, produced several:
** 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.
** And as a further insult, the Commander said of his violating the Nork's waters that "[P]enetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the act." That is an almost verbatim repeat of the the definition of rape in the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
** On that note, there's [[StealthInsult the Hawaiian Good Luck Sign]]...which just goes to show what lack of knowledge of the POW's culture can do.
* The chemical symbol for plutonium, Pu, was intended as a joke. It was added to the Periodic Table of Elements without question.
* When the professional hockey team the Tallahassee Tiger Sharks moved to Macon, Georgia, their name was changed to the [[Series/TheNewlywedGame Macon Whoopee]]. The logo featured [[TheTalk a whooping crane being tormented by a bee]].
* When Swedish sculptor Carl Milles tried to make a statue of Poseidon for the town of Goteborg, he was prevented from making it anatomically correct. He got around this issue by cleverly placing the fish in Poseidon's hand, so that [[http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Carl_Milles_Poseidon_03.JPG?uselang=sv when you look at it from the right angle...]]
* The Seychelles once printed a [[http://chao-tic-earth.blogspot.co.uk/2009/09/seychelles-50-rupee-sex-note.html bank note]] featuring an idyllic beach scene, where if held sideways, the leaves of a palm tree spelt out the word "SEX".
* Architectural models, featuring small model people milling about and going around their business in the vicinity of a proposed building development, have included dogs cocking their legs against lamp-posts, and couples having sex in remote out-of-the-way corners.

* Philippine President Benigno Aquino III gets this a lot from his critics in print, including, but not limited to ''Manila Times'' writer Rigoberto Tiglao. As his complete first name is '''B'''enigno '''S'''imeon, Tiglao and other "P-Noy" critics often refer to him as "President BS Aquino".

** The Song of Songs (a.k.a. the Song of Solomon) contains plenty of suggestive sexual imagery couched in a perfectly innocent ''(cough cough)'' Hebrew poem.
*** Of particular interest is verse 7:2, in which the groom describes his beloved's navel as "a rounded goblet that never lacks wine". Let's just say that in the original text, the word "navel" probably refers to something a bit lower than your bellybutton.
*** Or, the word navel could simply refer to the womb of a woman with the wine being babies.
** Throughout the Old Testament, the word "naked" is often used as a polite euphemism for engaging in the sort of activities that would normally ''require'' a person to be naked.
** "Feet" are also often an euphemism for the genitals. This is why hitting someone with a shoe was considered especially insulting, even if you didn't hit the person hard enough to hurt. (This is true in modern Arabic, as well; it gives the reporter throwing a shoe at Pres. Bush an entire new level of meaning.)
** So when Jesus has his feet washed, the Pharisees were probably expressing a ''real'' sense of shock and outrage?
