Random Factoid #311

4 06 2010

Another factoid on censorship, this time a little different.

Yesterday, I went to the theater to see “Kick-Ass” (yes, I realize that it’s two months old and I’m just now getting to see it).  Or should I say “Kick-A**.”  Both my ticket and the sign on the theater used an asterisk instead of an s.

It just kind of struck me as odd.  The theater owners put up plenty of posters with the full and uncensored title displayed, yet they can’t put it on the marquee?  Or the ticket, which a child would only see if they were going to see the movie?

Their logic clearly escapes me.
