For NOT bandwagoning by referencing underage girl's' privates, I sentence you to... "Solitary Confine... er, Th

Editors for a website which allows readers to sign up and upload humorous stories appeared on TV tonight for a "Town Hall" session to defend their decision to censor some topics, while allowing inappropriate comment to skate by.

Some of the issues addressed during the Town Hall included the proliferation of humor articles about the gonads of underage children.

"There are dozens of articles on the site that refer to the genitals of 16- and 17-year-old," said a writer who wished to remain anonymous, for fear that even more of his submissions will be banished to the literary Siberia purgatory known as 'The Magazine.'

"Maybe they just don't get it, you know? They seem to be European, I think. Where else would it be OK to publish stories about little girls' privates?"

Another topic addressed was censorship of certain names, phrases and historical figures.

Said another writer: "I've seen the name 'Greenpeace' removed from subsmissions. I've seen the word 'allegedly' dashed into submissions, and God forbid you refer to Hitler or Linsday Lohan. These are SPOO - - er, these are SATIRICAL articles. Don't worry about sophmoric Hitler jokes, worry about your exposure getting paid for ads shown on pages that CLEARLY describe kiddie porn."

"Seriously, 'Miley Cyrus' Vagina Rubbed Up Wrong Way By Brass Rubbing Group'? It's illegal!"

UPDATE: Both writers were killed moments after this article was posted. They were then buried underneath 15 pages of Susan Boyle references.

UPDATE 2: The website has changed its name to "VuvuzelaJokesandMileyCyrusVagina.web," keeping with the theme of it's content.

UPDATE 3: How presumptuous it was to change the tags to "The Spoof." I believe I stated that the site was "unnamed."

UPDATE 4: Is there any chance that this article is NOT in "The Magazine?"

Make anthonyrosania's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
