    What a miserable world you all live in, terrified and enraged by certain combinations of vowels and consonants.
    It's fascinating, also pathetic.

    Why don't they ban invasions on foreign countries, getting the legs blown off of daft kids who were manipulated into giving their lives for nothing?
    That's what's offensive.

    I feel like an alien here, trying to understand your bizarre customs, and fianlly giving up because you're incurable.

    :huh:

    I find this part interesting...

    So... does he think scumbag and maggot should be banned from the song too??

    This is a song that has been on radio and tv for many years unedited. Why now? Has there ever, ever been a large number (or small number) of complaints about the use of the word ******?

    Well see, back when the word could be heard clearly, society crumbled, once angelic children were corrupted and instantly turned into crack****es and serial killers, and the world was a dark place, a cesspool of hatred and suffering.....


    ....and now that you can't hear the word, we live in a Utopian hugfest of enlightenment and peace.

    Thank God they edited it! :eek:

    See I think whats hurtful and ignorant is for people to feel like they have to brush over and edit the past.

    You know what Aer Lingus did recently? They stopped doing their "welcome aboard Aer Lingus" introduction in Irish... in fear of offending people.

    Nutso. Whats offensive is that they feel the Irish language would be offensive.
