Hilarious Complaints About "Wickedness and Filth" on TV

Posted by on Wed, Feb 6, 2013 at 8:12 AM

This link will open in a PDF, so fair warning, but damn, what a good way to waste some time at a desk/on the bus/wherever you are: from governmentattic.org, a magical document titled: "Informal complaints received by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regarding the television show ‘Saturday Night Live,’ 2008–2012."

Here, try some ([sic] throughout):

I am offended by the gay acceptance message this skit protrays. The implication is clear, if we got past our fear and tried anal sex, we would like it and then accept it.

During the "What Up With That" skit on SNL, actor Samuel L. Jackson said "What the Fuck" and "this is bullshit" during the show. I was watching with my gay friends and we were very upset. Thanks.

This has me very concerned for my safety and many others.
Last night on Saturday night live Jamie Fox called for the killing of all white people. This occured during his monolog at the beginning of the show. All through his threat he used Obama's name. I want to make a formal complaint against NBC, Saturday Night Live and Jamie Fox. Jamie Fox needs to be removed from society until this threat is over.

Get the dvd and you will probably see a lot more than I saw because I turned the channel because I was so disgusted and sickened. I would never record or even consider buying a dvd with such wickedness and filth on it even to send you a copy so you could see how terrible it was.

It's a good look into the minds of... well, of people who e-mail the government at all hours to complain that SNL jokes are too dirty. WOWZA.

Thanks, Hot Tipper Alithea! You find all the best funnies!

"All through his threat he used Obama's name."

Needs clarification. Is this person concerned that the POTUS is being sullied by association with this kinda lame gag, or does s/he think it makes the threat credible?

Although either interpretation is both sad and somewhat hilarious.

Soooo many of the people complaining about "obscenities" say that they had to use their DVR to watch it over and over to verify what was said/done.

The poor grammar and misspellings must be a side effect of all the hand-wringing.

"Our kids and grandkids are getting the wrong
message. That wierd sex and criminal behavior are good for this country."

Grammar matters, folks. Apparently this irate viewer thinks "that wierd[sic] sex" and "criminal behavior" are good for the country. Not sure what kind of weird sex they are referring to, but I bet it's kinky.

@5,

You're much more charitable than I. I suspect the outrage and poor grammar are side effects of their brains leaking out of their ears.

Samuel L. Jackson did say fuck, it kind of shocked me that they didn't even bleep him here on the west coast. Not complaining though, because who cares? It was after midnight and all good children should be in bed at that hour.

Looks like I'll have to start watching SNL again!

P. 68 is a good rant full of his/her own swears. P. 26 is sad-funny.

Am I going to get anything done today?

@1 - Works for me, just requires patience. It's a large document.
@3 - If some enterprising soul put that to a dance beat it would be the new Gangnam Style.
