Likely the silliest thing I’ll read all week

The classic tune “Money for Nothing” by Dire Straits has been deemed unacceptable for play on Canadian radio by the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council because of the word faggot. Ridiculous.

The Daily Show treats it with the scorn it deserves.

I’ll listen to that fantastic guitar riff any chance I have, so, presenting the groundbreaking video:
