Censor this!

I head to work this morning and see a lady reading a local newspaper and the cover had a picture of a naked woman! What is this lady doing? There are kids around here! I find one of these newspapers and utilizing my french lessons I deciphered the caption as a pic of French President Nicolas Sarkozy's wife Carla Bruni.

The way nudity is preceived here is totally different than in the states. It isn't an issue and is common to see an ad showing a little more skin. Europeans believe that nudity is natural. This article would never pass in the states. The record for most TiVo rewind moment was during the superbowl with Janet Jackson's wardwobe malfunction. My finger still hurts from all the rewinds and pauses. It would have been no big deal over here. I find the US prefers to censor the human body over gore and violence. The body is so much nicer to look at.

So go ahead G 'Dubba' and put your nude wife on the cover.... wait actually hold that thought (no, erase that thought).
