Re: Jizz

"The packaging of the recent Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes action-figure 5-pack refers to the band's music as 'jazz', which may indicate that 'jizz' is being phased out of Star Wars canon or more likely that Hasbro did not want the term on a toy package."  (from here)

Another, perhaps more disturbing possibility, is that some company other than Hasbro has trademarked the term "jizz". I know that modern Transformers toys now use the term Fireblast instead of "Firepower" for this reason.

This is almost as disturbing:

Jizz (instrument)
From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The jizz was a long-reeded instrument that was, as its name implies, the core of any jizz band.

I've hated most of the names from Star Wars, and this is a great example of the obtuse thinking regarding bad sci-fi, deliberate or not.

I always found the other term hard to swallow, myself.
