So Safe, So Bland...So Obscure. Even The MPAA Couldn't Say No.

DEEP RUMBLING VOICE: "In a world where sex is a no-no but extreme, horrifying graphic violence that warps the minds of children is par for the course and goes largely uncensored, the suggestive and slightly naughty poster for Kevin Smith's movie 'Zack and Miri Make a Porno' was banned by the ultra-conservative yet self-contradictory MPAA. However, Mr. Smith would not be silenced. Forced to find a way to convey what his movie is about without making the MPAA squirm in their seats, Kevin devised a stick-figure drawing of two sexually aroused and completely naked people about to fuck each other stupid while being photographed by a giant phallic camera. It was far too clever a thing for the MPAA to understand...and it got their approval. Way to go, Kevin. (QUICKLY: Coming soon to a theater near you. Rated R for normal human sexual behavior, the use of words such as 'cock', 'cunt', 'blow-job', 'suck', 'doggy-style', 'fuck', 'fucking', 'fuckity-fuck', and some ungainly dating rituals)."
