Quote Of The Day

"Then some topless young women appeared and started talking in Italian, we were horrified, it's not what you expect from a Doris Day film."

Churchgoing couple Alan and Anne Leigh-Browne on the rude shock they got when they went to watch their new DVD of what was purported to be Doris Day's 1957 comedy The Pajama Game.

Update: Link fixed.

Yes, they got a rude shock, horrifying, etc, but notice how the husband admits to watching the whole thing! Admit it man, you loved it.

ER:

The thing I noticed first was not the fact that they watched the whole thing. It was that the couple was "churchgoing". So what- If I buy one thing and get another, the screwup is on the part of the distributor, not me for expecting to get what I bought. If the movie had been Scarface would the couple still be relevant at all?

Besides, just because they watched it, it doesn't mean they were wrong to be concerned if kids had bought the tape instead. (and to keep it out of kids hands, they could send it on to me when they are done not believing what they were watching...to the end)

ok ok...was I the only one that thought my comment was funny?
I don't normally get in the middle of raunchy-speak but I couldn't resist it this time and NO ONE was impressed?
I'm totally bummed.
Still, I can't believe they sat and watched the entire thing.

Ok Debra- I'll play along

Are you shocked that they watched the whole thing because it never takes you that long?

Debra:

yeeouch..
ER..how did this get turned around to me? I didn't say the it was I who was shocked....

And you dear? How long?

Seriously, if they had children in the room getting ready to expose them (no play on words intended) to a classic film it may have been a bit of an awkward moment. Maybe they watched it because they wanted to see how it turned out. Maybe it was a shot in the dark that they would be surprised at the ending.
I'm sorry but every avenue I take with this makes me chuckle. I find it hillarious that this older couple sat and watched the entire thing. I guess I am just warped enough?

My biggest laugh:
"Our biggest concern with the whole episode was that small children could easily have bought the film and been exposed to its content,"

Right...
(ignoring the 'FOR THE CHILDREN!' aspect of it)
They had to settle for "The Pajama Game" because the kids in the neighborhood had already bought all the other Doris Day movies in stock.

hobgoblin:

Not only did they watch the rest of it:

"It was a pretty raunchy, explicit film, it certainly pulled no punches. My wife and I were very shocked but we watched it until the end because we couldn't believe what we were seeing.

They critiqued it.

"The film became progressively more graphic, there was no plot to it, it was just sex."

Old man: I like a little more plot to my porno, thankyouverymuch.

No worries...Trust me.

Especially with this one. I'm still chuckling

"Our biggest concern with the whole episode was that small children could easily have bought the film and been exposed to its content," Alan Leigh-Brown, 67, said on Thursday.

It's particularly disgusting to think that some of those small children may not even have been weaned yet. Why, just imagine the damage to the tender young pysche that would be caused by seeing a naked female breast. If only Michael Powell (or John Ashcroft) was still here to protect them from Liberals exposing them to filthy dirty nipples we could feel safe again.

In more ways than one, I'm guessing.

Steve L.:

A spokesman for the supermarket urged the couple to return the DVD so the matter could be investigated.

Ummmmmmmmmm...I volunteer to investigate the matter. They just need to me the DVD. It may take a while because I feel I will need to do a frame-by-frame analysis in much the same fashion as the Zapruder film.

McCain:

I have a feeling they were busted by a snoopy neighbor and switched the DVD jackets. Next time close the curtains. In fact, do that whether you are watching hot italian babes having sex or a Doris Day movie.

Not only did they watch it to the end, but didn't return it.

"A spokesman for the supermarket urged the couple to return the DVD so the matter could be investigated."

Messges left on their machine:

"Sir, just return it and we will exchange it for you."
"Hello Sir? We are still waiting for you to bring back the video"
"Sir? Hi it's me again, it's been 3 days, i'm still waiting"
"Hello? I thought you said you wanted to return the movie, I haven't heard back from you."
"Ok it's been a week and you haven't answered the phone or even when I came and knocked on your door. What's going on in there?"
"Hello? I know you can here me. Pick up! Are you watching that movie?"
