Cock-A-Doodle Do

cock
I read yesterday about how some of the Rolling Stones songs were censored at the Superbowl this year. I could not believe my eyes when I read that this happened in the United States of America and that the word COCK is the problem. Just ridiculous.

Hmmmm…so, this is why some Americans have a problem with France? Seeing as the national symbol of France is a COCK.

And, you can be sure that I have teased my cocky French husband plenty for the fact that a cock (rooster) is the national symbol of France. You can have just way to much fun with that particular word.

Now, exactly, what can we do about all those Kindergarten teachers out there misleading young American minds with the nursery rhyme Cock-A-Doodle-Do??? I better email Bush’s censorship hounds and inform them about this huge problem. I, personally, just could not live with myself thinking that all these children hear the word COCK and that no one is doing anything to save their virgin ears.

    It would be funny if it weren’t so scary!

    Talk about tongue in cheek, talk about twisting words around! Oh what a good laugh you gave me! Very cocky of you!
    First they strip French from fries, then cock from the rolling stones, soon only bombs will be thrown and not a word muttered…

    All of a sudden I have the urge to say pussy.

    I love cats!

    Too funny! I wasn’t even aware that there were “dirty words” in the Stones’ songs until now and I’ve been listening to them since I was a teenager.

    Isn’t it weird how people feel the need to protect others from certain words, as if one word is better or worse than another?

    Now I’m wondering if they’re going to come after us because one of the variations of our older son’s first name is Dick! :-)

    Amen to that! I agree, censorship in the US does tend to go a bit overboard. If you are raised with commercials that are au natural (like some of the body lotion commercials here in France), then the naked body is not such a taboo topic.

    As much as they try to censor things and shield our eyes in the US, people can always change the channel to MTV, and listen to Howard Stern on the radio!
