Er, well, too fucking right it might be potentially offensive; that's 
half the fun to Southpark.

Maybe the iStore morons could grasp the concept of, oh, I don't know, 
organizing content *by* content?  As in adult stuff over here, 
potentially offensive over there, Barney blowing dogs over here... let 
the consumer pick what stuff they want, without even seeing the "bad 
bits" unless they choose to.

This nonsense about "Daddy has to live off milk because baby can't eat 
steak" is getting really, really tiresome.  It's not like anyone is being 
forced to watch Southpark, or hardcore porn, or Ann of Green Gables - 
whatever it is one finds offensive - so why can't these folks, in the 
case of the ones doing the whining mostly putative adults, simply act 
like they're not spoiled children?

Wouldn't know.  Apple's entire approach to media always struck me as 
downright retarded, which kinda makes one wonder about the people who 
actually pay for it.
