Leave It To “Beaver”: Canadian Mag Changes Porn-Sounding Name After 90 Years

After 90 years, The Beaver magazine has announced it will change its name after a losing battle with online porn filters. It turns out most folks searching for “beaver” online are not looking for a historical periodical about Canada! “Nearly a century ago, it probably seemed the perfect name for a magazine about the fur trade and Canada’s northwest frontier,” the publisher Deborah Morrison lamented. “There was only one interpretation for the word then.” Ha, we’re surprised this didn’t happen sooner. Starting with the April/May issue, The Beaver will be called the less raunchy-sounding Canada’s History—and will stop confusing pervs who want fanny-flashing Britney pics. [AFP]
