The FCC is wierd.

This morning I was listening to the radio, and the song "Date Rape", by Sublime, came on. In this song they use the phrase "butt rape" and "take it in the behind" to refer to the same unpleasent situation that oft occurs in prision. Which one do you think they sensored? The one with the evil word "behind".

I don't know about you, but if I were a parent, I think I would rather have to explain to my child what "take it in the behind" means, because at least I could fake my way out of that one. "Littly Timmy, that means that you have to go to the end of the line for food." It's pretty hard to dance around "butt rape".

Just a thought for this lovely morning.

I've always wondered why the FCC allows radio stations to constantly play songs like the Ying Yang Twins that goes "wait to you see my $%#@ get hard...I'm gon beat that p%$#y up"

makes no sense

I love the sentence: "It's pretty hard to dance around 'butt rape'".

With respect to what allison said. I've never heard these YingYang Twins before. Is it possible that they are talking about a person named Richard and possibly someone's cat?

But I'll certainly agree with the broader sentiment: Censorship doesn't make sense...

Unless it's necessary to prevent terrorism... Pretty mucy anything goes if it's necessary to prevent terrorism.
