Censorship: Is It That Bad?

Yeah, actually it is and also I can't bothered to actually outline any real issues about freedom of information/expression/speech vs all that BUT WHO WILL THINK OF THE CHILDREN??? junk.

To be honest the title was just a lazy segue into discussing the latest celluloid horrors dreamt up by Tom Six. In case you've been living under a rock without an internet connection or living a normal, productive life and haven't heard about the original Human Centipede, this is what Wikipedia has to say about it:

The Human Centipede (First Sequence) is a 2010 Dutch horror film written and directed by Tom Six. The film tells the story of a German doctor who kidnaps three tourists and joins them surgically, mouth to anus, forming a "human centipede".

Yep. Unfortunately still haven't gotten around to seeing that one, but here are some artist renditions of what it may have been like:

Anyway, I'd better hurry up before the sequel is released. OR HAD I? Seems the human centipede surgery police are at it AGAIN and have blocked release of the film (in the UK, anyway). Why you ask? I think The Shiznit explains it best, aided by lovely fluffy animals:

OK, so it's a little "edgy." But it can't be worse than Sliding Doors. SRSLY.
