    Which version…?

  2. Mr. Bingley says:

    Naughty and banned ones, I hope.

  3. Syd says:

    The interesting part of this story is that the banning came after one single complaint from some think skinned resident in Newfoundland. One complaint from someone who objected to the use of the word, “faggot”. The sad thing is that the song is a work of satire, not a threat to the gay community. Yes, the Nanny State is busy in Canada.

    Ours is trying hard to catch up, Syd!

    Saw this yesterday, WTF is wrong with these people?

    If you don’t know the original, then Weird Al’s funniest line from the Beverly Hillbillies parody makes no sense:

    “That little Clampett’s got his own cement pond,
    That little Clampett, he’s a millionaire!”

  7. Gary from Jersey says:

    So Denise is Canadian. It makes sense now.

    Speaking of Dire Straits’ Brothers In Arms album, check this guy out. Coolest tattoo ever.,29307,2038041_2220390,00.html

    I couldn’t help but notice that Knopfler does not sing the offending word in the clip you posted.

  10. Rob says:

    He only used it on the album, Spider. He says “queenie” or “mother humper” or some such when he performs it.

    Unedited (North American) MTV version:

    IIRC the original British version used “pooftah.”
