Stupidest Censorship In The History Of The Universe
Comedy Network in Canada is now showing reruns of the show. When I saw these shows many years ago, explicit words weren't muted out (Canada doesn't have the kind of harsh censorship that America does). But Comedy Network's showings have things like "fag" and "prick" (as iin "that guy is a real prick") and even "anal" (as in "anal-retentive") muted out but they are allowing things like *beep* and "*beep*" (Cabbage Head says "I'm King of the mercy *beep*!") to go through unmuted.
So it seems they have idiots muting out "questionable" words that aren't even being used in their most explicit context, but leaving the super obvious swear words in all their glory. But then they'll show South Park totally unmuted with dozens and dozens of things that would be muted (or bleeped) on regular TV.
I wonder if maybe they only had access to recordings of the show that somebody else had muted illogically.
