Censorship

Disgraceful'''s cover underwent a revision after some time on general release. The original cover contained a furry, blue pencil case with a balloon inside, creating a somewhat labia-like effect. This was later revised to the current, slightly less blatant bunny slipper design. Some have contested this move as censorship which entirely misconstrues the tongue-in-cheek humour of the original.
