Talking penis given the chop

A US court has apparently ended the television career of a talking penis.

A three-judge panel of the Michigan Court of Appeals declared that the talking penis, nicknamed Dick Smart, telling "purportedly humorous" jokes on a local public access cable television channel constituted indecent exposure.

The court let stand a one-day jail sentence already served by the show's creator, Timothy Huffman.

Wednesday's ruling contained a transcript of the three-minute segment that aired twice in 2000.

It included the voice-over lines delivered in the style of the late comedian Rodney Dangerfield: "Hi, I'm Dick Smart. I am a comedian, yeah, stand up, ha".

Mr Huffman could not immediately be reached for comment but he told the Detroit Free Press newspaper he planned to appeal in defence of his right to freedom of speech.

That REALLY fucking pisses me off. I mean, that's beyond words. Public access? I mean, honestly, what the fuck?!

It's great to know we need a black box made in another country to teach our kids ethics, morals, values, etc. that mothers are too lazy to teach.

Everyone's going to miss the penis jokes soooo much. Really.

The issue here is that they go after a public access channel that has almost zero viewers, NOT the lack of cock jokes. You can find plenty of those at www.sickanimation.com .

Life is all about dick and fart jokes... and talking penises.


What?

Nope, the wasted tax dollars towards shutting down a show on public access, which has about 30 viewers.

And who was paying for the public access show? Talking penises wouldn't be acceptable most other places (save for cable TV) so I don't see why it's so shocking that it was taken off the air. That's just like I said; dick and fart humor. Moreover, being public access, kids of any age could watch it. At least parents have some kind of control if it's on cable.

When I was five I found a porno mag the first day we moved into our house in Indiana...and I found it funny, because I didn't have a clue what the hell it was. I had taught myself to read at that point, and I read the words "PUSSY PLAY."

My bro saw it too.

And it didn't fuck me up a bit (The porn "addiction," now broken, came after I watched a Japanese porno for the first time when I was 12).

Kids are not fucked up by pornos, because they don't know what they are. I think Icarus can testify to this...

"EEEWWW! Girls!"

Who said the kid had to be five? You're rationalizing. I'd rather my kids not see dancing penises on TV, then go to school and emulate them. Yeah, that'd be an awesome call from the teacher - "Hi, Mr. Junglizm, your child was playing the "magical dancing penis" in class today and had to be disciplined. I'd like to schedule a meeting."

:rolleyes:

Censorship is good, over censorship is bad.

I'd get such a kick out of that if my kid did that.

Then have the neighbors think you're an incompetent parent. :rolleyes:
It shouldn't have been taken off because of free speech. It's not a thing I'd fight for because it's something only intellectual inferiors and little kids think is funny. :thumbsdn:

Didn't they have a talking penis (Charleton Heston's penis, to be exact) on the man show. That penis was funny, always hunting clad, and racist. That right there is sheer brilliance, a racist penis.

My penis gives the bird to spics.

I'm not saying he's racist, but how does his profile prove anything? I guess only white people can be racist. rage/smilies/rolleyes.gif

Check his profile picture...He has also said many times that he is indeed hispanic.

Hey, guess what. A hispanic using racist terms for hispanics is still racist.

It doesn't matter who uses the term "spic", it's still a racist term.

What are you naggers talking about? I'm west-indy. And it's my PENIS that's racist. I've tried talking to it, but it just won' change it's hateful ways.

P.S. It was my penis that typed in 'naggers'. I tried deleting it, but my penis wouldn't give in
