    The Hoohaa Monologues



    ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. -- 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.

    Some said hoohaa is a strange word and that its definition depends on its context, while others said it sounds like a country band.

    However, it's not a band at all. In fact, most people know hoohah by a different name -- vagina.

    "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.

    "I'm on the phone and asked 'What did you tell her?' She's like, 'I'm offended I had to answer the question,'" Pfanenstiel said.

    Some parents said they applaud the title change.

    The theater said they're trying not to offend anyone, but the publicity doesn't hurt.

    "We hope people understand we're trying to do the right thing. But as far as doing it for attention, we're a comedy club, we do all kinds of shenanigans," Pfanenstiel said.

    The play is being brought to the theater by a group of law school students and all of the proceeds are going to various charity organizations.

    The director of the play said she was going ask the theater and comedy club to return the title back to its original name.

    Give me a damn break. It is the title of a well known play. It isn't porno or anything like that. These people need to take their complaints and shove them up their collective asses.

    So let me see if I understand this: The woman was driving with her niece, the girl states "What's a vagina?" Rather than say "Ask your mom later, sweetheart" or coming up with an adultlike response, instead she gets flustered and calls the theater to complain about the situation?

    OK. Instead of simply answering (or evading) a simple question put forth by a child (and being done with it), she now has to draw undo attention to what essentially is her own basic inadequacies in rational behavior. Surely this led to dinner table conversation, of which the child could obviously hear, seated at the table.

    Great. In a few years, we will be further reading of this story, when the child grows up and blames her behavior on the theater chain (and it's marquee), whom she will no doubt be suing.

    Sweet Jesus. People are simply insufferable.

    So I guess "Pussy Prattle", "Cooter Chat" or "'Tang Talk" probably wouldn't fly as well?

    I swear, sometimes, that we're headed back to the Dark Ages in this country: a woman offended by the word "vagina"??? Sounds like she's more than a little repressed.

    And if her niece was old enough to be able to read and pronounce the word - which isn't as easy/basic as something like "cat" - isn't she old enough to know what one is. I mean, I'm sure the kid knows she has one. Apparently she just doesn't know what to call it.

    Fuck the theater owner for changing the name of the play, too! Some uptight bitch is offended by the word "vagina"...so what? Is the world going to come to an end?

    The theater should have laughed hysterically, and simply hung up the phone...
