The Hoohaa Monologues.. That can't be right.

I saw this at work earlier today, but I forgot about it until now!

A theater marquee in Florida was changed to read "The Hoohaa Monologues" after someone complained that the play's real title "The Vagina Monologues" was offensive. Really, how is the scientific name for a part of the female body offensive?

And hoohaa is better? A theater rep said that they "decided we would just use child slang for it. That's how we decided on Hoohah Monologues." Hmm.. so resorting to childish slang is better than keeping the title of a well known play on the marquee? The director of the play says she will try to get the theater to change the marquee back to the real name.
