The Porno Switcheroo Archives: Sesame Street DVR Description

Traditionally, of course, the Porno Switcheroo comes without warning. That is the beauty of a Porno Switcheroo. Almost all of the entertainment value of the Porno Switcheroo would disappear if you were expecting one. There is almost no joy in watching a businessman presenting a PowerPoint Slideshow who says “And this next slide is going to accidentally be a Quicktime movie of two women peeing in each other’s mouths that I thought I had hidden on my desktop in a folder marked ‘NPR Podcasts,’ which was inside another folder marked ‘Old Stuff’.” And very few outraged parents would write in to their local cable provider in violent protest if every Saturday morning, at 10AM, as listed in TV Guide, that day’s episode of Dora the Explorer was replaced with a repeat viewing of Dora She Explore Her: Asstralia.

One assumes that this was simply a programming error, and that the actual Sesame Street aired rape-free. In which case, this Porno Switcheroo had no victims and went virtually unnoticed by the anti-Porno Switcheroo activists. Unless this was a double Porno Switcheroo in which Sesame Street was accidentally replaced with Sex-a-me Butt Street, but we have no evidence of that. For now, FILE UNDER: Inactive Porno Switcheroo, or IPS. (Via FAILblog.)
