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;

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;
