(WARNING:Some rough language from FCC complaints included)
What would the world do without TheSmokingGun.com? Their newest info is on the 150 complaints the FCC received over the Prince half-time show as Super Bowl XXX and the Snicker’s advert. TSG reproduces 12 of the most entertaining ones and they are an interesting look inside the minds of the people who bother to sit down and write letters to the FCC.
My favorites are:
“…that was the backdrop seemed to be (stained?) with something (semen?) My children were watching and now I have to explain to them what a wet spot is on a cum covered sheet.”
Or you could remember it was down pouring rain, there was standing water on the stage, and the sheet got wet from rain? I know…I’m nutty with the logic.
“It was obscene to show Prince, a HOMOSEXUAL person through a sheet, as to show his siluette while his guitar showed a very phalic symbol coming from his below-midriff section. I am very offended and I would preffer not to have it showed to my 4 children who love football. One of them has hoped to be a quarterback and now he will turn out gay. I am actually considering to check him for HIV. Thanks CBS for turning my son GAY.”
Wow….really…first…the spelling and grammar come directly from the letter. Very…enlightening. And yes…Prince, the HOMOSEXUAL has the power to turn kids GAY through the TV AND give them HIV. His gayness is just THAT powerful!
So, now we have a better idea of the people who write in to the FCC with their complaints. People who believe the “magic box” can turn their children gay. Yes folks, these are the people whose complaints end up help censoring what YOU watch on YOUR TV.
