Can we start a Normal Adults Television Council and start complaining about the lack of cursing and nudity on television?  I mean if you don't want to see those things on TV, then don't watch it!  Or watch ABC Family or something.

I don't want to think of the children, that's why I don't have any!

I'm a grown man, just like Flacco and all the other players.  Hang a microphone over my head at work? So often that I forget they're there when my mind is on something else?  Pretty good chance you'll hear me curse at some point.

The PTV are the most self-righteous, prudish, stuck up ninnies ever. Their whole mission statement is to "promote and restore responsibility and decency to the entertainment industry in answer to America's demand for positive, family-oriented television programming." They complain about EVERYTHING on TV that is not completely family friendly. Such as Breaking Bad. They acually "reviewed" Breaking Bad and told people that it was inappropriate for kids. As though that really needed stating!
From Wikipedia: "Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy, compared the PTC's frequent negative reviews of the series to "hate mail from Hitler"
When even Seth MacFarlane thinks your a dumbass, you probably are.

Weaver95: the Parents Television Council sounds like a group of people desperately in need of an emergency blow job.


Wait, you can get an emergency blow job?

My city taxes cover police and fire, but I'd pay more if I could get an emergency blow job.

Hand Banana: Yeah because if there's one thing a lot of kids are going to be watching, it's the Super Bowl.


I think that happened at 10:15pm on a school night.  Who's doing the real damage to these kids in this situation?

Marcus Aurelius: Why do they hate adjectives?


Adverbs.  "Amazing" is the adjective, and "f*ckin'" describes it, so thus it is an adverb.  The word is so versatile.

Zarquon's Flat Tire: Can we start a Normal Adults Television Council and start complaining about the lack of cursing and nudity on television?


I think if the FCC/networks got 100 pieces of mail in support for every ad-hoc "X People Council of Concerned Citizens for a Better Tomorrow Because Family and Freedom" letter against, they'd go away.

So who wants to build the spam-jaculator to handle this? Should be easy - write 10 or 12 different versions of a "Fark yeah accidental breast exposure!" or "That WAS farking awesome, and Joe was absolutely right to say so!" letter, start mixing and matching paragraphs, and you've got many thousands of combinations of letter to send. And with the internet on computers these days, why, an enterprising fellow could send many of these messages on behalf of real, voting, tax-paying people to petition their government to not do a farking thing about it.

We own those airwaves too, guys.

I thought I read somewhere the PTC are the source of 99% of the FTC's complaints. Why they're still listened to by anyone is a tragedy.

That F bomb was dropped after 11pm Eastern time, 10pm Central and 9pm Mountain.  If your kids are up after this time, then they are old enough to have been educated on what words are "bad" words.  The only people that have a gripe should be in the Pacific time zone.    When my kids were younger, every time a bad word was said in front of them, it was used as a teachable moment.  Now, they are the ones to point it out when it happens.  Shielding is stupid since you'd have to ensure that every single parent on the planet subscribes to your same newsletter on what a kid should be shielded from.  My opinion is to educate and take away the taboo associated with so many things and suddenly you children aren't as enamored with things deemed bad.

At least for the east coast the even happened after 10pm, so the PTC can fark right off per FCC guidelines.

Are you cursing?  There's no cursing in football!  Oh, wait...

(If you're bothered by cursing, don't watch football.  Or live sports in general.  Bound to be the odd four-letter-word here and there, in case you haven't noticed, you f*ckwits.)

It's just a matter of time before Big Bird, Barney or some other children's TV icon inadvertently drops a few F-bombs.  Pretty sure in a fit of anger a few years back, Bert called Ernie a "cocksucker" and it got by the censors.
