this reminded me of what happened with Prince's "Sexy M.F." years ago.
I heard it on the radio and it had Prince fully singing "you sexy
motherfucker..."; in the video version edited for MTV (at least the Italian
MTV) instead of a "bleep" had some little "ow!" scream cut-&-paste on the
"bad word".
So you had Prince singing "You sexy motherf--ow!".

pretty idiot...


p.s. for Steev: I didn't expect the "shit" thread to explode this way...
sorry; I still don't think it is entirely "off topic" in here...
