Stay Classy, Universal!

Went to the movies last night and saw this poster in the lobby. It's for Universal Studios' new film Blockers, a comedy about a group of parents who try to stop their various daughters from losing their virginity on prom night.

Take a closer look at the poster. Note the large rooster icon at far left. Get it? A rooster, which is sometimes known as a "cock." As in Cock Blockers. Obviously the MPAA wouldn't let Universal come right out and actually use that title, so they got creative and went the rebus route.

Congratulations, Universal Studios! You just brought the term "Cock Blocker" to the nation's theater lobbies! You ought to be brimming with pride right about now. Stay classy!
