Even the New York Times has taken notice that the Canadian history magazine, The Beaver, has been forced by changing times to change its name to the less snicker-worthy Canada’s History. The article notes that, although the source of much schoolyard humor for decades, it is the advent of the Internet – and the inability of students to search websites with ‘Beaver’ in the title, which is not entirely unreasonable – which has necessitated the change.
Although this is the kind of story that kind of makes you chuckle a bit, it makes you wonder what magazine titles will be re-examined, or outright forbidden, by the dreaded double entendre:
- Bald Pussy Monthly, the magazine for owners of those freaky looking hairless cats;
- Tits & Ass, a combined publication for lovers of specific types of birds and of donkeys;
- Student Nurses in Latex, a specialty magazine for Nursing students, reminding them about proper sterilization techniques;
- Naughty Catholic Schoolgirls Annual, the magazine dealing with the psychology of young women, approximately 17 to 25, who attend Catholic schools and who have encountered trouble with the law;
- Large, Floppy Breasts on Really Slutty Women…
Ok, maybe that’s not the best example…
