  • Hey, who doesn't love a naughty Santa? The GIS for it is fantastic:
     
    No explicit nudity, but still NSFW
     
    My kind of Christmas stockings (Same premise, should be considered NSFW)
  • "We do not support the adult-themed advertising presented on the float," DeMoura's statement said. "The language was contrary to the family-friendly nature of the parade and brought controversy to an otherwise exceptional parade."

    Which of these slogans - "Gifts for the naughty and nice!!!" and "Guilt free shopping in a comfortable and upscale atmosphere." - is contrary to a family-friendly environment and in any way controversial?

    You're right, it's impossible to understand why there'd be anyone who was against this. All of those words are fine...it's completely impossible to understand. It must be the other people being wrong because not even using all the power of my imagination can I even begin to conceive why anyone would have a problem with this.

    Let me try again...UNNNNHHHHHHHHHH...nope, I am utterly unable to see how this is an issue at all.

    Interestingly, even though all the words I just used say very clearly that I completely agree with your point of view, you somehow know that I do not agree with your point of view. Isn't it weird how that works...
  • Well that certainly got unpleasant in a hurry
  • Comments like the two below the article make me glad I don't live in SC. They was nothing x-rated about the sign. No nudity, no swear words, etc. It was no big deal. Get over yourselves prudish SC. I'd like to transplant all SC residents to Europe for a week where full frontal nudity appears on television and women go topless (and in some place bottomless) at the beach. They'd all have heart attacks.

    PLEASE! THINK OF THE CHILDREN!
  • Butthurt, butthurt everywhere there is butthurt.

    White Christmas? NO, Butthurt Christmas.

    Remember kiddies, if you can celebrate your holiday and butthurt the Christian Taliban, you have done well.
  • This thread is Christmas dildos
  • Meh - seems somewhat appropriate to post:

    Fappy Holidays!
  • FTFA: ""Maybe I'm off the mark, but if that's offensive ... then we've lost our sense of humor," Gibbs said."

    He's not off the mark at all.

    That was just about the greatest 90 seconds of network television in a decade.

    I was going to say something but thanks to this I forgot what it was.

    The question isn't whether people can contrive to be offended by the existence a place they don't approve of. The question is whether they have any legal right to impede a non-profane, non-explicit advertising campaign at an event that accepts advertising for other legal business venues. Hint: The Supreme Court's only problem would be that they didn't properly fill out the paperwork.
  • They should have know it was going to cause a controversy, but if advertising was allowed they had no reason not to display the sign hell the controversy is just additional advertising.
  • As the person responsible for organizing our community's Christmas parade (and July 4th parade), I have to say the community would be very upset if somebody put something similar in our parades. I would catch a LOT of flak for either saying it was OK or not reviewing each float to make sure this kind of stuff stayed out. I patronize those types of stores, but then again I am not a child. There is probably a better place to advertise an adult store than in a Christmas parade.

    I think that they should have the ability to put this float in that parade. I also think they should have the brains to figure out that doing so would be a really bad idea. Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you SHOULD do something. Everything in its place and all that jizz jazz...

    /but we had a Pure Romance dealer at our vendor tent with no complaints so go figure
  • The strumpets of Corinth come later in the New Testament. Mary Magdalene was contemporaneous with Jesus, but not guilt-free.
  • Get a Christmas dildo for all your hole, hole, holes!

    For that matter, how is sex not "family friendly?" You don't get families without sex, somewhere along the line. Let's face it, cloning hasn't come that far yet.
  • "its toys for older kids"
    is what i would tell my kids
    but i guess they would not think of that

    ok, I give...what movie is that from?
  • Leave it to SC to get butthurt about a tateful ad for an adult business but not bat an eye at a company called 'Back of the Bus Transportation and Advertising'. Because using a reference to segregation to sell your services is so family friendly.
  • The real obscenity is a town having a Christmas Parade.
    /amIdointhis right?

    Are you from the past?
  • Did they toss free dildos out to the crowd?
  • coal in the stocking is a euphemism.
