Yesterday when the news broke about HBO editing "Gone with the Wind," I got into a conversation on Twitter about the most ridiculous lengths basic cable has gone to to take obscenities out of great movies. Here are the best examples. Come for the "Yippee kay-yay, Mister Falcon!" Stay for the "This is what you get when you find a stranger in the Alps!"
At some point, they've got to just start beeping the swears out like radio does. But when you watch a film like "Snakes on a Plane" edited for TV, it's almost like seeing it in a different language. And it makes an intentionally funny movie unintentionally hilarious. So you keep doing you, television.
