When Shrek and Donkey go visit Duloc, Shrek notices the immense height and size of Lord Farquaad's ~tower~. He then utters this quote, implying that Farquaad might be not be very well-endowed. This sexual innuendo was lost on the kids, but gave adults a laugh.

Wipe Your... Face

At the entrance of Duloc, Shrek and Donkey watch an animatronic puppet show sing the laws and rules of the city. The puppets instruct visitors to, "keep off of the grass, shine your shoes," and "wipe your..." - they then showcased their rear ends. Then, all the puppets turned around to say "face!" in an awkward non-rhyme. You'd be an ass not to know what they were implying.

One scene in Shrek 2 was an ode to COPS. KNIGHTS had jerky camera movements in the style of the police show and followed a literal white bronco (referencing the infamous OJ Simpson police chase). There is even a drug reference when catnip is found on Puss and he declares, "That's, uh, not mine."

The Shrek writers playfully hid a swear inside a character's name so well that it wasn't uncovered for years. If you say "Lord Farquaad" as quickly as you can, it easily breaks down to "Lord F*ckwad." While this hidden f-bomb hasn't been confirmed by DreamWorks, many posters on Reddit certainly believe it to be true.
