Comedy Central's Take on Profanity

Having nothing to occupy myself this morning, I turned on the high definition wide screen Sceptre and launched the Xfinity programming guide.  To my delight, I found that Comedy Central (which, frankly, isn’t all that comedic most of the time) was showing Animal House.  What a grand way to kill the dead time between awakening and the start of the Giants baseball game.

Animal House is a hoot.   Comedy Central..........not that much.

Endless commercials.  This is why I seldom watch regular TV and mostly stick with Netflix, Amazon Prime, Pub-D-Hub Gold, and other offerings from my beloved ROKU box.  Via the ROKU box, I also watch some advertiser supported programming, like Crackle, Popcorn Flix, and Moonlight Movies but the ads on such, um, “channels”, I guess, is not nearly as annoying.  Don’t really know why, but part of it is that there just aren’t quite as many and they aren’t quite as pervasive.

Back to Animal House.  I’m watching and hooting along and then I notice that Comedy Central has bleeped out the word “shit”, and also the word “shith” (that’s how Bluto Blutarski pronounces it), but not the “God Damnit's”.  When they edited the term "ass-hole", the bleeped the "hole" but not the "ass". 

Comedy Central is so agenda’d it’s pathetic.  They just can’t help themselves. 

Not that I’ll quit watching some of their drivel. 

I’m a low-brow guy that way.

A final note to Comedy Central-----Just leave in the shits too.

You’re welcome.
