->''"The Motion Picture Association of America is less than pleased about a new poster for directors RobertRodriguez and Creator/FrankMiller’s new ''Sin City'' film adaptation, ''A Dame to Kill For''. The poster depicts the title character, Ava Lord, played by actress Creator/EvaGreen, wearing a sheer gown that doesn’t really cover all that much. Specifially, the MPAA complained about the 'curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.'\\

->''"The group was instigated after Tipper observed her daughter listening to “Darling Nikki” by {{Music/Prince}} (lyrics about masturbation), and, in an inference process worthy of David Noebel, decided that rock & roll caused teen suicide, murder, Satanism, drug and alcohol use, and worse.

->''"For the most part her complaints were transparently idiotic -- her objection to the cliffhanger in ''[[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS14E3TheDeadlyAssassin}} The Deadly Assassin]]'' was that children would believe that [[InsaneTrollLogic the Doctor’s head was being held underwater for an entire week]], a suggestion that ascribes an almost comical level of televisual illiteracy onto children. But she was always good for [[YouCanPanicNow a few exuberant and tabloid-friendly quotes]] like her famously description of ''Doctor Who'' as ''“[[MurderSimulators teatime brutality for tots]],”'' and had enough supporters to be influential in spite of her obvious deficiencies of reason."''

->''"You’ve got to love how much controversy surrounded this book at the time with the Doctor (Shudder! Gasp!) taking magic mushrooms to contact the Blue. I was 13 at the time this book was released and I have to say after reading it I was a regular user and always high as a kite trying to contact mind controlling aliens. Christ! Give children some bloody respect! The Doctor has since murdered people (''The Burning'') and married and set up shop in a whorehouse (both in ''The Adventuress of Henrietta Street'') but nobody got in a tizzy about that."''
