I hate censorship unless there is a funny replacement word

"MILF?"
"Yeah, a Mother I'd Like to Feel"

They ruined Pineapple Express on FX

I personally prefer and support non-censorship, why should you refuse a man a steak because a baby can't chew it?

Censorship is based on the concept that people haven't

A) heard any of this profanity before

and

B) that they're in-equipped to deal without without becoming some sort of twist-word deviant.

Both of these are stupid as a basis for anything relating to censorship.

Do you know why the South Park kids swear so much?

Because that's how little boys actually talk when the parents aren't around.

Actually, that's how middle schoolers talk when the parents aren't around. Most of them grow out of thinking they're cool for doing so within a year or two of entering high school fortunately.

Nope, that's actually how 4th graders talk when there are no grown ups. I would know, because I was one, and I hung out with others when I was.

i often swear around my daughter, and she knows how to already (she's only 2) but she also knows when to use it. as long as it is not used inappropriately, or in the wrong company, i dont see a problem with it.

The uncensored sounds better, too much bleeping takes away from it

What I truly hate is when people force swear words into their comedy. It only makes it look like they were desperately trying to be offensive. Swears should only be used as emphasis, not garnish.

I'm looking at you, Seth MacFarlane.

Because what if the baby really wants the steak, or there's nothing else on tv to eat?

Mhmm. Ever since the dvd releases, and the bringing back of the show, they thought "oh, we can have these released uncensored... Why not go all out?"

South Park did this with the movie, but it worked because it made fun of that fact. South Park now sucks, but I won't go into that.

With Family Guy, it's the same shit they always pull. "This joke worked? I'm going to do it again and again". I don't just mean characters that were "funny" or situations (greased up deaf guy, chicken fight), but I mean styles of jokes too. It's more than just "remember that time I got an enema from a dinosaur with peanut butter on his mother's potpourri?", or the random humor in general. They just re use so many styles of jokes over and over and it's so tiresome.

The swearing bit is one of those jokes. Oooooh, baby is swearing, LOL. Oh no! A sheep swore! AHAHAHA. Look how much this guy is swearing! Ohhhh noooo! I bet that sounds like a mess on tv!

The clip I posted of Buster Bluth was one of the rare instances of words being censored, and pretty much one of the few times, if not the only time, they used that joke.

Family Guy has no idea how to progress and how to move on.

Why should they if it works?

Apple's made a pretty similar business model. Throw the same shit if people are willing to catch it in the face.


Also, regarding your title, I don't recall you ever carolling about ****ing.

I like uncensored most of the time but i also like the way How I met your Mother does it. They replace weed with a "sandwich" or a middle finger with a thumbs up.

...

Business models no not equate to being jokes

show


If something sells, you keep at it and expand on it. They still expand on it. New models of same products, new features on same products, upgrades, etc. Does Samsung release the exact same phone but two years later, and all it is is a different colour with a different name? No.

Jokes get stale. Jokes are based on first impressions, longevity, and creativity. Not comparable at all, even as a joke.

Of course, but I take jabs at Apple whenever I think the situation can use it. Which is often.

Alas.

I still think McFarlane is a good writer--he's just caught in the whirlwind of trend.

No, it's just silly to censor. It's just a way to prolong the man-made-up things such as a bad word or indecent behavior on which the view has already changed so many times, and it is going to again. Censoring is just stalling. And, it plants the idea in the people's heads that censorship is not really that bad.

I think if Lee Evans was censored people would see just how unfunny he is. He relies on swearing to make his jokes.

I don't see the point in censorship unless its intentional.
