Cut Sub?

In 1999, Matt Stone and Trey Parker released a feature film based on their hit cartoon series South Park. When their preferred subtitle was rejected by ratings authorities, Stone and Parker proposed a substitute: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.

Only after the film was released did censors realize that the slogan was a winking allusion to an uncircumcised penis.

[When the film's gleefully profane song "Blame Canada" was performed at the 2000 Academy Awards, worried censors almost nixed the word "fart." Parker and Stone sat in the audience -- in drag -- until the song lost to Phil Collins' Tarzan ditty, "You'll Be in My Heart" -- whereupon they headed straight for the exit.]

[Matt Stone and Trey Parker once joked about releasing a collectors' edition of Bigger, Longer, and Uncut -- with "lost Jabba the Hutt footage."]
