Okay, AMERICA'S GOT TALENT is a show all the cool kids hate, and for the most part they're right, but every now and then you get an audition like this:

Am I the only one who finds amusing things on the Internet? Or am I the only person sad enough to post them here?

If I were to post every image I find funny that I have saved than this thread would be enormous. I browse 4chan.

This is what happens when you give a grown adult a Disney coloring book.

Ridiculous tv-edits. Last night FARGO came on the Pop channel and nearly every instance of the word "fuckin" was replaced with "frozen." Which was sort of appropriate, given the movie's setting, but still so goofy. Just playing the actual f-word would've been less distracting!

That reminds me of this classic:


Oh you Americans and your need to censor swearwords for TV Laughing

That's been getting more lax lately, it kind of depends on the demographic the channel is skewed to.
I was gonna say at least we never banned Donald Duck comics but I guess that wasn't a ban, per se. tongue

What a great inspiration!
Whenever there's an adult version of Disney's "Frozen", they should re-name it "Fuckin".

Yeah that's an urban legend which, from what I understand, started in 1977 when some public facilities decided not to subscribe to the comic book anymore.

There actually was lots of censorship in Finland in the past decades, especially for lot of violent horror movies (for example, Texas chainsaw massacre was banned until 1996) and many anti-soviet films like Red Dawn, because our politicians at the time wanted to kiss Soviet Union's ass be in good terms with the soviets. Film censorship was officially abolished as recently as 2001, which was surprising to me.

Nowadays you can publish pretty much anything short of child porn and snuff films, you can say every swearword in the book on the radio or tv in the middle of the day, and you can show tits and genitals on tv as much as you want, although usually such content is only shown later in the evening.

One funny thing though, sometimes in an English language movie or tv show when they say "fuck", it's translated in the subtitles to something like "darn" or "dang" Very Happy

Funny thing is, I find that sort of thing more prevalent on DVD and blu-ray subtitles.

Case in point, in the original Alien, Ripley says "blow that fucker out into space", and the TV subtitles changed it only slightly, essentially just changing "fucker" into "fuck". But on DVD and blu-ray, the subtitles use "devil" instead Very Happy

Part of me wonders if these translations are actually made by someone fluent yet foreign, so they just go for a "safe" translation while unaware of how lax our rating standards actually are in that sort of thing - then again, isn't Alien rated 18 anyway? Hardly makes a difference if that's the case.

I would think they're all native Finnish speakers, after all I don't think there are many native English speakers who are fluent in finnish... but then again I don't know.
