Snip and Cut

I was watching Desperate Housewives just the other day and suddenly as one of the characters was speaking, one of the words was muted (although his mouth kept moving).  C’mon, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out what the word was….It was so apparent what he said but still they had it censored.  Yes, he said the word “sex”.  *gasp!* *Horror!*  So the word “sex” is not allowed on TV, but women clad in sexy outfits are?!  Because they’re allowing that anyways…..  Whatever happened to the government’s mission to instill sex education in our youth?  I mean, can you just imagine the people who work for the censorship board pricking up their ears and going, “a-HAA!!!  There’s that word again, let’s blip it out!”

Oh and let’s not get me started about the movies.  Remember Hellboy?  Oh yeah, some of you might know it by the name of Super Sapiens instead.  Why did our censorship board change the name Hellboy to Super Sapiens, when the entire movie all we hear is Hellboy, Hellboy, Hellboy….. Isn’t that just totally absurd?  And why the double standards?  Why did Hellboy get changed to Super Sapiens (I’m assuming it’s because of the word “hell”), but Linkin’ Park’s Numb, which drones onandon with the line “What the hell are you waiting for?”, gets played over and over again on the radio?

    What the *beep* are they playing at? Do they know what the *beep* they are doing? *Beep* is a natural function, you know… otherwise how to keep Malaysia population growth? *grin*

    The Giddy Tiger says: See? I told you they were wasting their time beeping out those words… heh.

    they do such a bad job of censoring all those words, it’s almost comical! at the cinemas when they cut out a string of swear words, it sounds like they’re having spasms and spurts of conversation instead…

    The Giddy Tiger says: You remind me of that guy in Police Academy who would pretend he was acting in a foreign dubbed movie…except that’s not censorship, but bad dubbing. Haha.

    LOL. I remember Super Sapiens. So lame.

    The Giddy Tiger says: I know – tell me about it. *rolls eyes*

    I thought it was so silly the way they were bleeping out words in DH! Obviously they think we aren’t mature enough to handle the word “sex” when the papers are filled with it everyday!

    The Giddy Tiger says: But by bleeping out the words, it will only arouse curiosity! They just don’t geddit!
