I have to wonder how much of the "Real Life" section*

is not this but rather That Came Out Wrong and/or Have a Gay Old Time. Isn't the difference between this and the former intent?

The thought occurred to me while reading the entry regarding the Tea Party and Fox News. I strongly doubt that people to whom the pothole could be applied would utilize Double Entendres intentionally (with the exception of Rush Limbaugh and others who bill themselves as part commentator, part "entertainer").

EDIT: Added one more pothole...

Cut this:

* Taken Beyond the Impossible by the Sir Mix A Lot song "Baby Got Back". Even someone who's grown up listening to Pitbull and Lil Jon can be shocked by how unspeakably filthy the song is, with literally every single lyric creatively expressing the man's desire to have anal sex with big-bootied women. And yet there is not a single "obscene" word in the entire song — not even the requisite "ass" that one would expect to hear in a song with this subject matter.
Because while it's true that the song uses no "obscene" words, it is nevertheless totally explicit. There's no reasonable or even remotely plausible interpretation of the song other than that Sir Mix A Lot finds women with generously curvaceous derrieres to be sexually attractive. The song is very much a collection of single entendres.

Deleted this barely-intelligible, natteriffic part of the Harvey Birdman example:

  • Ha ha HA! Phil Ken Sebben.
  • Ha HA! Multiple Entendre!
  • Ha HA! Danglyparts.
  • Ha HA! Quadruple Entendre! ... At least it is in France.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
