    Back in the day people freaked out if a woman on TV wore pants yet today’s generation is considered ‘sensitive’ and ‘easily offended.’

    I worry about a man who puts that much time and thought and effort into creating a pun around “testicle.” I mean, I’ve got two and I don’t spend THAT much time thinking about them.

    Hard to blame Comic Strip Censor Guy for this one, which Cartoon-Boy went to such pains to set up. But shutting down and barricading the strip is kinda extreme, I think….
