Lame radio 

So there's this one FM station in the market that tends to play the "clean" version of songs.

This drove me crazy over the summer when, in a particularly lame example of bleeping, they cut the words "drugs" and "drug-dealer" from Nickelback's song "Rockstar."

This puritan silliness wouldn't be so bad if the station wasn't totally random about enforcing the rules. Last night I heard them play -- back to back -- the edited "Rockstar," followed by the un-edited version of Third Eye Blind's "Semi-Charmed Life," a song entirely about crystal meth and oral sex. You almost never hear the straight version of this song.

So, to sum up, on this particular station you can't say:

Everybody has a drug dealer on speed dial
But you can say:

She comes round and she goes down on me
And I make her smile like a drug for you...
...Doing crystal meth
Will lift you up until you break
...And then I bumped up,
I took the hit I was given
Then I bumped again...
