Dong Unhappy About Censored Sex Scenes

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but this story wouldn't be half as funny if the guy's name was different.

Censors sued for cut steamy sex scenes

BEIJING (Reuters) - A Chinese moviegoer is suing China's film watchdog in frustration with the censored version of Ang Lee's steamy World War Two drama "Lust, Caution," Beijing media reported Wednesday.

Dong Yanbin, a Ph.D student at the China University of Political Science and Law in Beijing, had filed a suit against the nation's film censor, the State Administration of Radio Film and Television (SARFT), for infringing upon his "consumer rights," the Beijing Times said.

"I felt greatly disappointed after seeing the movie," the paper quoted Dong as saying.

How About 'None of the Above'?
I don't want to see ANY male politician nude, and only two female politicians come quickly to mind, neither of whom I want to see in the raw. While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may have had her face lifted, I suspect that everything under the clothes is saggy and wrinkly. Ugh. And as for Senator Clinton: I don't even want to see her cankles, much less her CENSORED. Now, Dennis Kucinich's wife is another matter entirely.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) - More Australian voters would like to see Labor Opposition leader Kevin Rudd naked than their current prime minister, John Howard, a poll showed on Sunday just two weeks out from a hard-fought general election.

The question was posed in a Galaxy poll of 1,200 voters and published in Zoo magazine, the Australian Associated Press reported.

"No one wants a prime minister who doesn't look good naked," Zoo editor Paul Merrill was quoted as saying.
