God, when will the people that own walmart actually walk into a walmart, so they can realize their entire customer base is ex-cons with annoying children and nagging wives? Who are you protecting here? None of the 3 can even read.

"Rude and disrespectful"? What the fuck? They're the ones implying that it's "dirty" when it's just a common British expression meaning try something new. I can't stand our culture sometimes.

I stand by it. People make such a huge deal over here about the smallest things. Every other country I've ever been to has amazed me with how differently they react to things that would cause "controversy" here.

Just like Living With Lions, another dumbass band who can't get it through their heads that the industry/retailers ALWAYS shut down anything controversial in terms of cover art or album title.

That's a huge generalization. Whatever. Just because the Christian conservative Waltons find it offensive, doesnt mean anything. They have a long history with censorship.

Which doesn't make a whole lot of sense seeing they are the most money hungry capitalists in the US.

I mean, I want them to stop touching little boys, but I am but one man.

still baffles me how Walmart wont allow swears in music, but selling movies with nudity and swearing is fine. I mean, seriously. didnt we determine music isnt the devil when the Marshall Mathers LP DIDN'T create a generation of serial killers? Christ.

I wanna meet the people that walk around Wal-Mart, head to the cd section, look at this album cover and go "THIS IS OFFENSIVE AND I WILL NOT STAND FOR IT!". Censorship pisses me off so hard.
