Maybe change the line to "you’re cheap and you’re haggard" ?

No, hows about we just don't change it and move on with our lives and just let the permanently outraged be permanently outraged.

I've heard it played on the radio with that word taken out tons of times, I mean, it's a slur/swear word isn't it? Thats usually standard practise.

Its my fave Christmas tune, taking one word out doesnt spoil the listening experience for me.

RTE routinely play Bell X1's "Rocky took a lover" which has the line "you're such an asshole when you're drunk". During the DAY. When CHILDREN can hear !

What if someone had an asshole that doesn't work ?? WHAT THEN ??

Two things.

I hate this song and I really think the whole censoring/removal of songs just in case someone is offended is a genuinely retarded move.

BUT! I'm really sure that line has been censored on many radio stations for years now. I vaguely remember having a conversation with people in work back in like 2004/05 about it being censored.

Eoghan McDermott and people like him are the reason I steer clear of Irish radio stations that play modern chart music.

"****** is their N word"

So does that mean if a gay man and a lesbian re-record it then it's all good and we can play it?

Maybe go full on gangsta rapper and put it in every sentence?

When rap is played on music channels and radio they almost always censor the N word though.

I was in the company of a homosexual over the weekend when the song came on in a pub while a group of us were drinking heavily. He’s not a hysterical or moany sort, but did say that he finds that particular word offensive. It’s a slur, and isn’t one of these words that has the heat taken out of it by being accepted by the community or group it is meant to insult.

See,

This is the problem, you give into one of these outrage junkies and the rest demand their special requests be obeyed.
