Damn You, Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson!

So a year and a half after their "wardrobe malfunction," Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson are still wreaking havok on live network television. Last night, ABC decided to bleep the Rolling Stones while they performed "Start Me Up." Do you remember any dirty words in that song? Me neither. Apparantly double-entendres are a no-no, now.

Remember the part that goes "You make a dead man come"? They bleeped out the word "come." COME ON! This makes the leap from a lyric about re-animation to one about necrophilia. Who are these perverts in ABC's censoring panel? I am more offended that they bleeped the word than I would have been if they hadn't bleeped it.

This is getting out of hand. the only people who took the lyric's meaning in that way were creeps who like to have sex with corpses and hyper-sensitive finger-pointers who are out to spoil the fun for everyone else. You know the type, the nerdy little boy who sat in the front of the class and spastically waved his hand in the air five minutes before the bell rang on Friday afternoon, just to tell the teacher "You forgot to give us our homework assignment!" Meanwhile, everyone else shot daggers from their eyes at the back of his head.

Get a life ABC!
