I remember an episode of Growing Pains
in which Ben Seaver (the consummate
dork) was making a movie for one of his high school
classes. I don't remember what the movie itself entailed, but there was once scene that the kids had filmed, where Ben was talking on the wall mounted telephone in his family's kitchen
. Taped above the phone was a handwritten sign which said "pubic phone" with an arrow pointing down at the kitchen telephone.
I still wonder if this was an oversight of a misspelling, or a subversive idea of a joke. I find it funny because it's so strange - the show was entirely white bread
and was pre Jerry Springer
- I've not seen or heard the word pubic on television
