The censors have been working overtime of late, reducing radio’s “The Howard Stern Show” to a series of random bleeps and — intentionally or not — scaring local television stations around the country into dropping a planned broadcast of “Saving Private Ryan.” Are these five targets next?

National Geographic — No, not even doctors’ waiting rooms are safe from crypto-smut.

The Overstock.com pitchwoman — The Rubensesque beauty may be the best reason to surf on over to the discount merchandise site. Not for long.

Workout-video infomercials — You know the ones we mean: Look past Jake Steinfeld and Chuck Norris, and you get a sea of toned bodies inviting lubricious thoughts as they sculpt their abs to perfection.

The Food Network — Sure, they look and sound like cooking shows, but all those references to plump, juicy breasts … somebody’s gotta put a foot down.

Olympic swimming — It’ll mean slower times, but decency demands a return to the more modest bathing costumes — belted jackets and bloomers for ladies — of yesteryear.
