WELL, FLOG MY DOLPHIN!

From THE GUARDIAN:

Officials in Pakistan are demanding that mobile phone operators block all text messages that include words they define as being "offensive". The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority has produced a list of more than 1,000 swearwords, anatomical terms and other phrases judged likely to be used obscenely. The usual, unrepeatable, suspects are there, but so are a number of seemingly innocuous words, the inclusion of which has baffled some observers, including the following:

Axing the weasel
Backdoor
Banging
Budweiser
Deposit
Dome
Finger food
Floggin the dolphin
Footstar
G-Unit
Hobo
Kumquat
Hole
Idiot
Joint
Lotion
Pud
Satan
Sleezebag
Stringer
Tongue
Trojan
Trots

They are also recommending the banning of really naughty words such as "breast" and "homosexual," as well as the word "Jesus."

COMMENT: Muhammed me sideways! What a bunch of jerks.
That's if I'm allowed to say "jerks."
