Today In Boob News
Janet has been dumped as a presenter from the Grammycast, the SAG awards may go on 10-second delay, and the boobs in the House and Senate are set to grill Viacom/CBS honch Mel Karmazin about Nipplegate.

Be sure to thank Mr. Resin for keeping us abreast of the latest developments in this news. As for Timberlake, he's a total boob. He was Janet's accomplice in this stupid stunt, so why are they even "discussing" whether or not to drop him from the Grammys? I think if the sight of one boob at the SuperBowl will spare us the sight of two boobs at the Grammys, that's a fair exchange. Janet can flash the other one too, if it keeps her ghoul of a brother away as well.

the stunt was if not in bad taste then inappropriate, but the over-reaction is worse: a hypocritical, media-driven frenzy that treats citizens like children, and sends children the message that a breast is something to be horrified at. no wonder we're so screwed up. viagra ads and violence are okay; skin is not. if the inappropriateness of janet and justin's actions were made clear and not not linked to some moral jihad, that would be better. but now every network is covering their ass (good, don't want to see butt), by instituting five second to five minute delays. thank goodness i have the FCC to watch over me. Maybe they can do something about President Bush while they're at it -- a delay would help to edit out the lies ... of course, then we'd just have dead air.

David's absolutely right about all this "for the children" crap. And what is the problem with your kid seeing a bit of boob, exactly?

Are you serious??? Amy, it's horrible. Children seeing a woman's naked boob! Awful! Awful! Imagine if young children were watching that show. Or worse, a newborn baby! You wouldn't want someone's innocent newborn seeing a woman's boob, now would you???

from now on i'm going to blame all my problems on my mother breast-feeding me. it will be a switch from blaming her for not breast-feeding me.

jackson and timberlake clearly planned the stunt. i think the subsequent hoo-ha is over the top, but i can understand that her boob and nipple accessory were simply a flashpoint for people who think hip-thrusting copulative dancing is both tiresome (especially when performed in a triangle formation) and boorish. the whole halftime show was ridiculous, which is weird to see myself type, since i'm fairly liberal. but this was just crass exploitation and pandering to the lowest common denominator.

however, i am sorry to see that in the aftermath, CBS re-edited the Grammy commercials to cut out that bitchen shot of Britney's hooters in the diaphanous "dress."

Win some, lose some.
