Civilisation - Gone in the Teeth

Remember Anti-Thesis?

Who could forget Bobby's first encounter with SWMNBN/Old Heart-in-a-box?

Then there's the confusion of Mark Bailey between Ezra Pound and T.S.Eliot that led the detectives to his door.

I'm sure that, like me, you've heard Bobby make the quote so many times it's permanently etched on your brains.

Well, it wouldn't have been if you'd only ever seen it pre-9pm on Universal Channel UK. Their ridiculous policy of blanking out words they think might be offensive has surpassed itself. And all because a). they have extremely dirty minds that see rude language where there is none and b). they are extremely ignorant of the English language.

Thus, this evening, I heard "Civilisation................gone in the teeth" where I should have heard "Civilisation - and old bitch gone in the teeth". Every time.

Obviously these idiot half-wits think that the word "bitch" is simply a swear word. They do not know that it has the perfectly legitimate meaning of a female dog.

It's a pity that they did this the day after reminding viewers of Bobby's top L&O detective award last year, on the same day they replied to my January (yes, it took them 2 months) email about Season 10 in which I mentioned the award. I feel I inspired the mention.

I just hope that now I can inspire a bit more common sense when it comes to removing what their dirty little minds regard as vulgarity and swearing.

It's ridiculous, the editing of alleged 'offensive' words. I watch reruns of "Frasier" on Hallmark and they also edit out words like damn, hell, bitch and ass. Get a life. *rolling eyes*

Dirty little minds--dirty little people.

I'm sure their censor is related somehow to the censor at Botophucket, who faints away at the sight of bare bottoms....
