ABC said: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.
