...and people start showing up on message boards with names like "Mindy Macready." So, while I still can still get away with it, *ahem.*

When I grow up, I want to be Hit Girl.

That is all. Laugh

I think it sounds really cool [In reply to] Can't Post

I haven't seen the movie (yet, not even sure it is already in cinema here).
But I think it sounds really cool. Too bad you have now claimed the title Wink.

YES! [In reply to] Can't Post

Just saw that this afternoon. Such a cool movie!

Kangi, I'm editing your post pending a decision by the admins on the a-word [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn't meant to open a can of worms when I made my post last night, but I suppose it was inevitable that someone would.

So anyway, everyone, please let's refrain from using the full title of the movie until the admins come to a decision. Thanks!

Pippin to Merry: "My dear a**"... [In reply to] Can't Post

..."your pack is lying by your bed, and you had it on your back when I met you" (LotR, V, viii).

See also Gandalf to Butterbur (II, ii) and Frodo to Sam (IV, i).


Of course I understand that context makes a difference.

I was in the Navy and that unnameable movie was #1 at the box office this weekend. [In reply to] Can't Post

The local news would not say the title but they did put the name on the screen. This is bordering on being loopy.

*Chuckles* [In reply to] Can't Post

A reply as only Me. Brigand could put it.

But I must add Mr. Brigand:
Merry was undoubtedly using the word a** in the context of the animal, an ass aka doneky/hybrid mule or whatever, said animal known to be stupid, stubboen, whatever. Traits of a domesticated beast who did not like to be domesticated. I highly doubt in ME at that time, or in the Shire at that time, similar slang using the name of the animal was also used as a profane moniker for one's behind regions,

Which would make its use perfectly fine in your post at least.
No? Sly

Aside from that...I have no desire to see this movie whatsoever. I think it sounds stupid amd juvenile, like most of "The Hangover." IS there is any special reason I shoukd see it? Is ita fantastic comedy in the grand "Airplane" tradition?

Also... [In reply to] Can't Post

The admins have reached a consensus. In fact, we're in 100% agreement that trying to dance around the title of the movie Kick-Ass without actually saying it would just be silly. I know some of you have already voiced similar thoughts and wondered why we even needed to discuss the matter, but remember, this is a family board. We work hard to keep TORN a friendly, welcoming place. And by "we" I mean all TORNsibs, not just the admins.

So, feel free to call Kick-Ass Kick-Ass, but don't forget the family-friendliness....Boy, was that a weird sentence! Crazy Wink

as in the UK it doesn't (or didn't when Tolkien was around) refer to to the backside

Censorship is a dangerous process. It should only be applied with the greatest care and understanding, if at all.
