3 minutes 50 seconds?
Those desperate wives must have been disappointed.
The trench coat with the DVD-wallet size pockets, please.
Shaken NZ sports fans have recounted how a relaxing Sunday afternoon in front of Prime TV's Grass Roots Rugby turned to horror and disbelief as they were treated to three minutes and 50 seconds of rooting Desperate Black Wives 2. According to 3 News, the "programming blunder" spewed no-holds-barred filth from one of Sky's …
For a moment there I thought this might have been an explanation for why nearly everyone here seems to watch rugby. It seems that people really do want to watch sweaty men in tight shorts groping one another and making human pyramids.
I wonder what Freud would have made of it.

Rugby is about large men using themselves as battering rams to break one another's bones with a lame excuse of trying to get a misshapen ball to the far end of the pitch, and people complain that sex is harmful.
Seriously, if you want to ban something ban the one which involves stamping on people's heads.
"One dad explained his eight-year-old son's innocence had 'been ruined'..."
Balderdash. Kids treat sex matter-of-factly if you do, and an 8yo boy probably finds it boring and incomprehensible. If anything has traumatized him it's your reaction.
You're better off educating him. The innocence won't last past the start of puberty, but the knowledge and understanding will help him through the rest of his life.
We all know that there is the occasional swear word on tv, so we are all well aware that things can go wrong. In fact, during some on-location reports we are just waiting for one of those passers by to jump in front of the camera waving and shouting HI MUM.
I guess parents need to pay more attention to risk management, lest they accidentally emotionally scar their child. Better to pre-screen all tv just in case such a blunder happens. Then when the child is 16 and thinks life is peachy and perfect and are finally allowed to leave the house, reality will come roaring forward, and they will kill themselves, if they don't die from the shock first.
A tragic end, but what a blissful, innocent time those 16 years were.
