skylarking: (sue kitty cat)
The new Bruno Mars song, The Lazy Song was on the radio yesterday and prompted a conversation in the office about the vagaries of censorship.

There's a line in the song where he says that he is going to sit watching TV with his hand down his pants and the word 'pants' had been muted out. Later in the song there's a line that goes, "find a really nice girl, have some really nice sex" and the word sex was left in. How does that work then? The word pants is worse than the word sex and of the two words pants has to be removed to protect the masses (and the children of course, won't someone think of the children!)? Maybe because the having his hands down his pants line alluded to masturbation. So suggesting masturbation is worse than directly mentioning sex?

I don't understand the logic. Neither did anyone else in the office.

Things I have seen that have amused me
A lady on the training course I was on this morning had an Elvis Presley glasses case. I think I might like an Elvis Presley glasses case. Elvis during the early blue jeans, leather jacket, jailhouse rock years not the sequined jumpsuit, deep fired peanut butter and banana sandwiches years Elvis. Mercy!
