Well sometimes I say the real word, not on here or any children sites of course..
and I think Ganz should Delete that one line.. With something much more appropriateish for younger children.. Like, some people gave examples of what they could say, parents wont be so happy if they say that.. word..

I agree. For the target age group it's a little innapropriate.

I disagree - I do think children can differentiate between a curse word or a word that is used in everything from childrens books to textbooks. After all a dam is simply something build by a beaver (I'm suprised that no one has objected to this word) or mankind.

But they're not referring to the word as simply a structure. That would not make it a joke. What makes it a joke is that are giving a 'wink wink' at the cuss word.

Default Re: Ganz Should Change Wording in a POTM Song

Normally I oppose changing something like a song or movie because some people are offended by some part of it. When I heard the song, I was surprised, unhappy, and conflicted. The first 2 match many people on this thread. The conflicted was because my first thought was "they need to change that!" and then I thought about how I feel about people trying to force change on someone else's creative work becuase they find it offensive.

After some long hard thinking and soul searching I have concluded that Ganz needs to change the joke to something not giving a wink to a bad word. This is not just a creative piece, it is one commercially produced and targeted for a very young audience.

I can live with the judge finding the jokes maddening and the thinking poor clown fish getting hurt is funny. I did not find it funny, but I could see how others might. I can also live with the clown fish taking cuts in front of all the other contestents. But the bad word/ water blocking device homonymn joke, while as old as almost any joke out there is not appropriate for a young audience. There are plenty of water/sea based jokes out there that they could have avoided one with allusion to language not allowed by their own kc+ filters.

If they wanted something slightly risky then how about "What's black and White and red all over? An embarressed orca!" Ok, a bit lame. but it would have made sense that the judge would not like the jokes a bit more after one like that. And with a bit more thought I am sure someone can come up with why the orca is embarressed.

The point is, their song writer blew it, the video editor blew it, and eveyone who heard the song befoer it was released blew it. That one joke should have never made it to the final release, and ganz reallyy should recall the video, do a small edit to replace that one joke, then re-release it.

Oh wow!
I agree, it's too UNAPPROPIATE for little kids who may be watching that video! Imagine what they think when they saw a cute little webkinz clown fish saying 'Dam!' but its a funny joke but I'm sUre little kids don't understand.
