Too much bacon causes potty mouth?

by oarsum / April 7, 2006 6:02 PM PDT

Is BOL turning into Diggnation? Can't wait for the explicit flag in iTunes to appear next to the podcast.

Can you do a late night podcast and just let all that pent-up emotion out? That would be "Frakkin awesome" (as her Majesty the Queen might say).

Did Molly issue a "cease and desist" after the show?

At least they don't use the clean tag

At least BOL does not use the clean tag. Anyone else listen to podcasts where they use the clean tag and a couple of obscenities slip through? I can think of a big podcast, but to be flame-proof I won't mention the name.

Is the bol demographic really so delicate? I'm at least as offended by the perpetually itching to be offended as the perpetually itching to be offended are at ''p'd off.'' In fact, I'll ramp up the extent to which I'm offended, if only to keep the perpetually itching to be offended in check. When ''p'd off'' is outlawed, only outlaws will be able to be ''p'd off.'' And that's not, the internet.

Consider yourself, perpetually mooted by my overwhelming willingness toward escalation of counter offendednessism. I'll take the hit, so that others can be p'd off and free. I am the counter-rash of your worst nightmares, you itch terrorists!

Dude, I had to re-read the first sentence about three times. Give a brother some hyphenated words, e.g. the perpetually-itching-to-be-offended Happy

But yeah, what you said.

You seem to be under the misapprehension that I was offended by it. As I stated in my post I would embrace a more adult version.

However, there must be issues with the phrase since you have self censored it in your post.

Actually, you suggested another show where none was needed. No misapprehension. We, the counter-rash army, mock your benadryl Wink

I read your post and didn't think much of it.

But after reading others I took your post to mean that you was upset about it.

What's offensive?
by punterjoe / April 8, 2006 10:20 AM PDT

I suspect the answer is everything to somebody & something to everybody.
I heard an ad with a "British guy" - probably just a yank doing an accent - spewing out all sorts of UK colloquilaisms, it probably would have seemed quite blue in the UK, but I'm sure just seemed 'colorful' to the people listening to it in the US.
If it seems reasonable that something wasn't deliberately intended to offend, maybe it's best to just let it slide. ...unless it turns into a total foulmouthed muckfest - which I don't see happening anytime soon Happy
Anyway, it sure beats those made-for-TV equivalents we all grew up with!

Australia recently launched an AD to promote tourism to Australia.

At the end a women says" So where the bloody hell are you?"

This isn't that offensive in Australia but its getting banned all around the world Happy

Video Podcast

Now I don't really care about a video podcast.

But it would have been so funny to see Molly, Tom and Veronica's reactions during the p***ed off section of the

It would have been somthing like this:

Molly looking shocked mouth wide open
Me looking confused with furrowed brow
Veronica looking surprised and beginning to explain.
