NBC's retarded Fear Factor stunt (http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/television/fear-factor-donkey-semen-stunt-pulled-nbc-parent-company-comcast-article-1.1014016?localLinksEnabled=false)

This subject is bewildering to me. What the hell is with our country's hangup about nudity, but we're fine with everything else: blood, gore, donkey goo, its all good? Really? Yes, NBC pulled it, but we actually came close to allowing something that would almost make me *VOMIT* to see on TV. We think our kids should be protected from the frightening, horrifying possibility that a little bit of female aureola might slip out into view, so we gotta pixelate that, but NBC was actually considering the possibility where in homes across the country kids would say "whats that funny grey bubble drink and yellow drink on TV?"

As the great Adam Carolla recently said last week, we need to replace our stupid FCC with the lasagna test. If there's something questionable on TV coming up, get 10 men and 10 women in front of a TV with 20 steaming plates of lasagna, have them start eating, then show the offensive material. If one person drops their fork and pushes their plate of lasagna away, we need to talk about it. If 2 or 3 do that, it probably shouldn't be on TV. But if none of those 20 men and women object to un-pixelated boob or female ass crack, if all 20 keep eating their lasagna and aren't grossed out, then what's the problem?!?
