Insuffensorship and I'm lovin' it

LOL! I was just on Wal-Mart.com "window shopping" at music downloads area and they have available for download "Fuck the system" by System of a Down... and it's EDITED. I just HAD to listen to it, to see how they could censor a song like that. And I'll tell you... it is definetely a hilarious case of insuffensorship (in-suh-fen-sor-ship), or insufficient censorship (see http://fayanora.23ae.com/temple_stuff/coinedwords.htm for more info) because you can tell that it's "fuck" they're saying, even if you'd never heard the original song!

Oh my gods! They have Marilyn Manson, too! LOL! *Giggle fit*

Anyway, I got up early this morning (8:30) with a neck ache, so I didn't feel like making anything for breakfast today, especially since there wasn't much available. So I went to McDonalds. Yeah, impressive, I know. :-)

All for now.

Chaotic Blessings;

They are not crap!

What's odd is that it's on Wal-Mart. Which you probably don't understand... okay, Wal-Mart is very family-friendly and wouldn't stock Godsmack once because the original copies of Godsmack's debut album had a pentagram on it.

In America, when one says "family friendly" one is usually referring to Christian Fundamentalists' views of what is family friendly. And Manson, singing about Satan and killing God among some of the less provocative things he's saying, is not exactly fundy-friendly.

By the way, I've asked you and Lilla countless of times but here I go again? Why do you Americans write down the phonetic transcription of every word you're not to find in the "my first words" book for 4-year-olds? Even such obvious write-it-as-you'd-pronounce-it words as insuffensorship?

Love you despite my frequent rants on anything,

That's because there are a lot of people in America who can't even pronounce simple words like "often," so the longer ones would give them a headache if we didn't tell them how to pronounce it.

Besides, dictionaries tell how to pronounce the words in them, and so I do the same for new words. I wouldn't want insuffensorship being mis-pronounced as "in-suf-fens-ors-hip."

Love you;
