New Zealand seems to have a better sense of humor than Australia when it comes to double entendre, as evidenced by the reaction from organizers of an Aussie netball tournament upon learning of the team name of one of its entrants.

A West Coast netball team competing in an Australian tournament at the weekend have been forced to change their name as organisers raised concerns over a possible double meaning.

The Greymouth side, formerly known as the Master Baiters, are headed for the Sydney World Masters Games under the title new Master Netters – a less risque reference to whitebaiting. via.

“Whitebaiting” is actually a term referring to fishing, and not pissing off Caucasians. I felt compelled to point that out. It’s too bad, because “Master Netters” does nothing to make me giggle like a 12-year-old.
