If I Can Read It, Why Can't I Hear It?

I've got the venerable NY1 on again this morning, and one of the segments was sponsored by Puppetry of the Penis. The screen was yellow with giant black letters spelling out the name of the show, and as the announcer said the name of the show, penis was bleeped out.

Do they not want blind people to know the name of the show?

Yes, of course I realize that it's because small children can't read, and that if they don't hear the word, maybe they won't be aware of the word.

But since when is penis a bad word? It's actually the technical term for one's cock.

Penis is always how one should refer to the cock, and most certainly is the word that should be used in a person's formative years.

In terms of straight evocativeness, I prefer cock. Oh dear, that didn't sound right at all...

I prefer the term "cock" over the term "penis". It is a word with a good clean bounce to it.
