Bawdy Songs: Obscenity

This week the Bus has taken a light-hearted look at some of the bawdier songs of the past. I have posted tunes that I felt illustrated the point, yet were not overly lewd. I did this as a form of self-censorship, as I have no control over who visits the Bus. I trust that if anyone riding the Bus felt that they may be offended by any of these songs, that they have the good sense not to download the files. That's how reasonable people deal with things they find offensive.

Throughout time there have been groups of people that have felt a need to determine what is offensive for the rest of us. Recently we've seen protests over cartoons in a small Danish newspaper and the film version of the fictional book "The DaVinci Code".

The U.S. Senate, having solved the problems of hunger, energy, education, healthcare, and their own coruption, have now set their collective minds to save our country from gay marriage (silly me, I always thought that divorce was the end of the traditional marriage, who would have thought it was the lesbian couple down the street!).

In these times of government corruption and scandals, the NSA and even librarians spying on citizens, many in this country go hungry, FEMA leaves town as hurricane season begins, cable and phone companies want to control the internet ...

Where's the real obcenity?
