Simpsons banned in Europe for making jokes about nuke disaster
Episodes of The Simpsons which feature jokes about nuclear meltdowns have been banned in a number of countries - as a reaction to the disaster currently unfolding in Japan.
German channel Pro7 was the first to act, vowing to screen footage from the popular cartoon series to make sure episodes which make light of nuclear crises are not aired for the time being.
Austria's ORF and Switzerland's SF networks have also done the same.

ORF has used the most extreme censorship so far, banning a total of eight episodes until a review at the end of April, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
An episode which features scientists Marie and Pierre Curie dying of radiation poisoning and another which has jokes about a nuclear meltdown are among those that have been cut.

Censorship should not be necessary, nuclear power is a joke, and a very dangerous one at that. Worrying about this now is a bit late in the game.

Humor is a wonderful way to process traumatic events, media blocking this is just ridiculous and make them look even more stupid than usual beerbong.gif

They are going to watch 22 years worth of shows to make sure they censor all of the shows that make jokes about nuclear plants?

coffeetime.gif That's a lot of couch potato time. Homer does work at a nuclear facility, going to be difficult.
It's humor, ğck political correctness. If this offends anyone they are probably a pussy. Seriously, do some TV's not have an off switch for the easily offended? gaah.gif

For real. Anyone that would be offended watching a cartoon should just go ahead and commit suicide. Amen on the off switch.
