File this under funnny?

I'm listening to Pandora Radio through my Sonos today when up comes a track from one of my favorite artists, Cock Robin.

Only in Sonos it looked more like this:

Yes, C**k Robin.

Just as a bit of background, Cock Robin is a great band that takes it's name from the saucy and scandalous book, The courtship and marriage of Cock Robin and Jenny Wren. If you want to see this shameful book for yourself, you can grab the pdf here. It is a tumultuous tale of passion and murder between fowl of the opposite sex.

The interesting thing to me is that Pandora employs tons of REAL LIVE people to categorize music. And yet somehow no one noticed that this obviously doesn't fit into the obscene column. Even if it did, I'm an adult and I can handle all sorts of words. I always find it entertaining that people still believe that if you put a star in a seemi**ly obsc**e word, that it makes it somewhat "safer" for child**n who obviously don't have the im*gin*tion or intellig**ce required to figure it out.

Um...yeah.

Personally I think that is a load of #$%^&*!.

All I have to say is it is good to know that if D**k Cheney ever starts up a musical career, our eyes are safe.

BTW...Buzzcocks song Orgasm Addict...apparently acceptable for your children.
