Accidental vulgarity.

Even by the dubious standards set by the Daily Mail, I thought this was crossing the line. On opened today's copy , tracking down the sudoku page, this is what faced me on p38. This will surely lead to complaints about decency thought I. To what depths has British journalism sunk. But when I removed the competitions supplement, so that p38 and p42 were shown together, everything was explained as entirely innocent. Lesson for our newspapers is to be careful where they place their inserts.

Actually "fanny" doesn't have the same connotations in the good old USofA. Going into a shop in say Bath and asking to shown their fanny pack offerings would have a different reaction to say going into a similar establishment in the USA. (From wikipedia a fanny pack (USA) is a "[P]ouch secured (typically) with a zipper and worn at the waist by a strap around the hips or waist".)
