D'oh! The Simpsons show not allowed on Venezuelan tv network

I'm hardly a fan of The Simpsons, but even for me, this is just too funny.

Venezuela's Televen TV station announced it was dropping the popular worldwide cartoon comedy from its 11 a.m. timeslot because of complaints that it's not appropriate for children. I don't let my youngest sons watch it, and, frankly, I think the concerns are warranted.

Care to guess what show is taking the Simpsons' place?

Baywatch Hawaii.

Believe it or not, the same show that's also called Babewatch or B**bwatch due to the accessories of the female "lifeguards" being the stars of the show.

LOL. That is too funny. Are you kidding me on the replacement show?

I saw you over at FWG, and thought I'd pop over to check out your site, I'll have to find your Christian one too...your baseball one might have to wait a little longer...since I'm a Yankee fan!

You'll have to refresh my memory...what does FWG stand for?

Here's the link to the article about the tv show: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24002320/. I apologize for not including it. Normally I try to do that so that readers can see that this isn't satire.

Best,
