    I always found it funny that for a nation that has no issues with softcore porn on at 11 pm, they are so freaking prudish when it comes to actual penetration.

    Call me crazy but I expect more from my Consumerist than linking to the Smoking Gun…that’s what Fark is for, for goodness sake.

    That said, it’d be sort of nice to have a ‘Bad Consumerist’ button or page where we can relegate or rank via voting all the stories the general readership finds un-Consumerist-like.

    What do you think, Ben?

    What do the Border Services agents do with those videos? The last few times I’ve visited Canada, all the border agents I’ve met were pretty young. Hmm…

    Confusing citizenry (individual choice)* with the government (societal consensus: decency regulations) is pretty easy to slip into.

    One wouldn’t consider it good taste to say of America: “For a nation that had no problem enslaving people (land owner’s individual choice) they sure do get skittish about torture (government choice) these days!” When remembered that way, it’s a lot easier to keep from accidentally combining the two very different things.

    * we do lovelovelove the softcore

    I have no idea what Napoleon Dynamite was
    about.

    There’s actually an agency within Canada that actually has to REVIEW these movies to determine if they’re acceptable. Could you imagine having that job? I mean sure it sounds good initially. But imagine having to do this for months on end. Eventually you’d be so bored with porn blurting out stuff like “Oh god not another lesbian fisting animal movie again… *yawn*”

    I wonder if you get a company towel with the job

    That’s 11pm Eastern, 8pm Pacific ;)

    @satoru:

    Yeah, God, I would be so chafed. I wonder if they’re allowed to fast forward through the boring parts.

    BTW, I actually saw a full-on, full-view, live gynecological exam on a Canadian afternoon women’s talk show once.

    I want to know what was so bad in Sailor and the 7 Ballz 2 that made it so much worse than the first installment.

    And I have no problem with Diarrhea Bukkake being banned from anywhere.

    @bbbici: Funny you couldn’t do that in the US, but 15 years ago I remember watching a full-on vasectomy on daytime TV here.

    And is Lesbian Spank Inferno on the list?

    That is really awesome!
