The amazing power of unnecessary censorship.

Like a lot of my peers I grew up watching Sesame Street as a kid and one of my favorite characters was The Count. I don’t know why, but I always thought he was a hoot, both him and the Cookie Monster.

Anyway, the following video clip of The Count singing The Count’s Song demonstrates how the well-known BLEEP often used to censor naughty words on TV can make things worse by leaving it to your imagination. It’s The Count singing his song but with a specific word bleeped out and, if you’re an evil bastard like I am, the results are very funny and very adult.

Somehow this makes me like The Count that much more.
