Has anyone else noticed that when station sensor the word "asshole" they bleep out the "hole" part and not "ass?" Obviously "ass" is ok to say on TV now, but I don't understand why "asshole" isn't. I've noticed "bitch" going uncensored almost all the time now, not that I really care I'm just surprised that there isn't some kind of uproar from a feminist group over it.

Next time the Matrix is on TBS, watch when Neo flips off Smith during the first part of the movie..."How about I give you the ""flipper"" and you give me my phone call?"

I laugh out loud every time I hear that shit.

I like to use "mammerjammer" now instead of "motherfucker" (or, "muthafucka"), after seeing 'Me, Myself, and Irene' on cable.

I remember nudity not being as big a deal back in the early 90s. I used to watch Revenge of the Nerds on TV whenever it was on, and they'd always show the part where all of the AB's moon the nerds, asses and all. That part gets cut now.

It's weird how that goes. Swear words are mostly okay now. Religious words are much less okay than they used to be. Same with partial nudity, but promiscuity is much more acceptable now than then.

Weird.

Yeap. Referencing the whole ass is ok. Pointing out the brown eye raises a stink.

I've noticed that the radio is really editing the piss out of older songs.
Like "Everything Zen" by Bush. They're beeping out asshole brother.

They take out two whole lines in "Longview" by Greenday. They used to play "When masturbation's lost its fun|You're f*blip*king breaking." Now they removed the lyrics entirely.

Why were these songs ok for 10 years and now they need to be edited?

The best edits are on the super stations when they air Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Especially whenever Cameron curses

"I am not going to sit on my ... behind ... as the events that affect me unfold to determine the course of my life. I'm going to take a stand. I'm going to defend it. Right or wrong, I'm going to defend it."

I think they used to show the mooning scene from Grease as well. Do they still show it?

Ya know what's interesting?

When Bush said shit, they played it on CNN.

But on Comedy Central, which airs the raunchiest shit you could ever imagine, bleeped it out (on the Daily Show). Same context, it was what Bush said during that meeting or whatever.

I thought it interesting that the "PG" network could say shit, but the borderline "R" network couldn't...

One of my favorite edits from "Coming to America" when they air it on USA:

"You rent's due SORRY SUCKA!"

Well done.

I also noticed that in "Longview" and it makes no sense to me why they changed that now. If they need to sensor anything its the stupid little sexual songs that 12 year old girls listen to, not songs like "Longview" that people have heard a million times. Really, isn't masturbation a lot less harmful than smoking blunts and/or banging and running the train on drunk chicks, yet I still hear this referenced in songs just fine.

I was going to say that exact thing. I wonder if they realize that they are censoring God...


They censor out "God" because that's the part that can get them in the biggest trouble, according to FCC guidelines you can make religious references only in the situation that they are used for religious purposes. Ex: 'Praise be to God' = A-okay. 'Jesus Christ!' = a swear.

Some people choose to let it slide, others don't. It's really the one you have to be most careful of because of all the religious zealots out there.

I still wonder how the Family Guy manages to get away with it.

oh yea Mammerjammer from that movie lol...... I think thats funnier then someone saying Mother fucker several times in a scene.

I do remember Revenge of the Nerds parts 1 and 2 having some naughty scenes.
There is a part in part two were someone says there VIP's and Boger says
"Very Intenses Penises" or something to that part.....now its like cut from all showings :(...

Also in part two when they are looking for a hotel there is one that the drive by and in the edited part the neon sign is like heavly blured... I think the nerds changed the sign later to say "Red hot sex" or something like that.

man I should just buy these two movies....i think they are still in print somewhere.

Nip/Tuck says shit all the time on F/X.

I also find it funny that often when someone says Goddamnit, God is the part that is censored.


In addition to "shit", they do use the Lord's name in vain quite often in that show. They also show a lot of naked male ass.

Dazed and Confused was pretty heavily censored earlier this month on TBS. I was just laughing at some of the word subsitutions the station used.
