Web filters force Beaver College to change name
Clean living American academics have decided they can no longer go through life working at Beaver College.
Ridicule from filthy-minded perverts has forced the staff to change the name of the institution, and from 16 July 2001 it will be known as the slightly less offensive Arcadia University.
The college gots its name from beautiful Beaver County, Western Pennsylvania, although it is based hundreds of miles away in suburban Philadelphia. It was originally started as a small women's college in 1853.
The Internet has also played a part in the decision to ditch the Beaver. Some filters, designed to monitor sexually-explicit material, have been blocking access to the college's Website.
President Bette E Landman confessed to the BBC that the current name "too often elicits ridicule in the form of derogatory remarks pertaining to the rodent, the TV show Leave it to Beaver and the vulgar reference to the female anatomy".
