The other night my husband made a smartass remark to me and I told him, "One of these days Alice...POW! Right in the kisser." My daughter, who was nearby, had never heard that, so I explained it to her. And it got me to thinking that you could never get away with saying that on TV anymore. A verbal threat of domestic abuse would never be acceptable on modern TV. It got me to thinking about other things like that. Say, the fact that on the 40th Anniversary DVDs of Sesame Street there is a warning label. Why? Because of things like Cookie Monster eating a typewriter or the fact that they don't wear helmets riding bikes.
I'm not trying to incite a debate on regulations on TV...I was just wondering if anyone else noticed things like this that you wish were still allowed.
If you don't want to talk about this, feel free to talk about anything!
