Houhaha

No way:

A modified marquee in Atlantic Beach has been drawing some attention. “Hoohaa” replaced a word in the title of a play after a driver complained about finding the previous wording offensive.

The marquis for Atlantic Theaters advertises a number of plays including, the Masquerade Ball, Band Jam, and now The Hoohaa Monologues.

(…)

“We got a complaint about this play The Vagina Monologues,” said Bryce Pfanenstiel, of the Atlantic Theater.

The Hoohah Monologues is a replacement title for The Vagina Monologues — a well-known play about that part of the female body.”We decided we would just use child slang for it. That’s how we decided on Hoohah Monologues,” Pfanenstiel said.They did this after a driver who saw it complained to the theater, saying she was upset that her niece saw it.

Oy.

By way of Lawyers, Guns and Money and Feministing, who both have good feminist takes on this inanity. Me, I can’t get past the wall of burning stupid.
