Today, Jen Doll covered the New York Times' justification for not printing STFU Parents, the name of a popular anti-baby blog. But, as one commenter noted, the paper contradicts itself by printing LMFAO. The implied f-word was reason enough to write around "STFU," but the paper seems just fine with the implied f-bomb in LMFAO, the name of the group responsible for "Party Rock Anthem."

Hmm...they don't seem to have any problem with this band's name, which has the same F as STFU, Parents:

Good catch, Evan. They'll even mention the band's name right in the lede.
