Shit shit shit

Filed under: — shenuts @ 6:05 pm

So Dale Earnhardt Jr is in trouble for saying “shit” on live television.

SHIT. SHIT. SHIT. SHIT. SHIT. Hey Nascar, how you like them apples?

Let me just say this:

I hate NASCAR. The only reason I know about it is because my stepfather is WAAAYYY too into it. So I know by association.


But the dude was excited. Said “shit.” It’s not like he was mad and said “stupid mother fucking bitches!” Now then, hmmm, I might worry.

But he said shit and has been fined and lost points in the standing for doing so. NASCAR said something about cleaning up the image and not offending NASCAR viewers.

I know, I know. SHIT is a four-letter word. So is FUCK and DAMN and DICK. But, I was watching Oprah today and she said “bitch” on the air. Where’s HER fine???

I think that Howard Stern brought this up. He talks about sex, she talks about sex with children or teenagers in a pretty risky way and yet, she gets away with it. Janet Jackson shows us her nipple and the world goes crazy.

Yeah, the nipple thing was kind of out there, but, come on– it is a damn nipple. It is not like she spread her legs to show us “little Janet.” Justin Timberlake didn’t whip out his weiner and whapped it in anyone’s face.

How about this? How about parents watch television with their children? If little Billy Bob says “Papa, why did Jr. say ’shit?’” you can tell him that he’s an adult and he got excited and shouldn’t said that and probably went home and got spanked by one of his 100 groupies.

Of course, you don’t have to explain that the spanking was done as foreplay and not as punishment.

It’s not like kids have never heard the word. If you don’t say “shit” in front of your kid, I bet you that someone else does. 12-year-olds do oral these days, do you think that the word “shit” is going to freak them out???

Grow some parental responsibility and explain to your children that people do things that aren’t always approperiate. Don’t go and fine people and bring out the censorship police.

  1. I only watched NASCAR one year. That was when the guy who lived next door to me in college was a huge Dale Earnhardt Sr. fan. I watched just to root for Jeff Gordon, b/c the Earnhardt people didn’t like him much.

  2. OK, so I started watching NASCAR because the boyfriend watches it and it dominates my TV on Sundays. At least I don’t have to watch football.

    Anyhoo, I. AM. SO. HAPPY. That JR. got fined 25 points because he is constantly doing shady stuff on the track and never gets called on it. I can’t stand him. Woo Hoo NASCAR for making my day!

  3. SJ, don’t forget…NASCAR DADS is the new, influential demographic (who votes Republican, and we know how Reps. are trying to strongarm the FCC), so you’re damn skippy that NASCAR’S ass is trembling–the last thing they want to do is offend their demographic. These swine vote, and they vote in drones (Nascar Dads)–now the FCC is FORCED to shift their eyes to Nascar and their broadcasts.

    Oh, and I know I’ll get blasted for this but…what do you expect from a redneck? Why do you think everyone hates Jeff Gordon so much? He actually doesn’t have a Southern accent and can formulate complex-compound sentences.

    Did you actually hear Earnheardt’s soundbite?
    “It don’t mean shit right now…Daddy’s won here 10 times.”

  4. What I think is funny is that they think Nascar fans would be offended by the word “shit"?

    C’mon. They’re NASCAR fans… I don’t think they blush easily.

    (Nascar fans do not email me… I’m not hanking on you… I’m hanking on people who really ARE offended by shit)

  5. Offended by shit? Puh-leeze. My son knows what and what not to repeat. The commercials they air during the races are more offensive than the word shit. My son does not need to know that ’sex sells’ at age seven. And as far as the NASCAR Dad swine that vote….funny, every single NASCAR fan I know is a democrat.

  6. I thought they were all rednecks and it was part of the common language. Haha - Just kidding I totally think that NASCAR is like the boriest sport to watch - even worse then golf! IMO!

  7. As a die hard Jimmie Johnson fan (I have a pillow with him on it in my bed folks) I have to say I’m glad Jr. got fined. He’s not my favorite racer. However, I think it was a stupid reason. My 2 year old said ’shit’ 3 times in a row the other day.

  8. If NASCAR wants to clean up its image, maybe it shouldn’t let the drunk rednecks flash signs outside its tracks that say “Show us your boobs for a beer” as fans try to get home. It’s been a redneck sport long before I started watching it as a kid. Back then it was driving skill and brute force that determined the winners. Now it’s multimillion-dollar sponsorships and pretty-boy puppet drivers. Just one of the many reasons I’m no longer a fan.

  9. “Whip out his weiner” - bwah! God, you are eloquent!

  10. If anyone was offended by the word ’shit’, they *probably* wouldnt be reading this blog…

  11. I hate Nascar anyway. But dammit, every kid is gonna hear shit eventually. Where was the fine for showing Denid Franszs fat ass on NYPD Blue?

  12. I am a huge Dale jr fan. Kinda obsessive according to my husband. Anyway you are right what a crock of shit. I mean its not like he was made or anything.He was happy that he just won a race. I am so pissed off with Nascar right now. But what else is new.

  13. I like NAscar, and Dale Jr. doesn’t offend me, but it was really a dumb thing to say. Not because he says shit, I could care less about that, but the sentence in general. And, not to psychoanalyze him, but why wouldn’t coming in second to his daddy mean shit? Following his daddy carried him through the fire statement, I think he has some daddy issues right now. Regardless, the fine is stupid. What does cussing after a race (and not in a fight inciting way) have to do with his performance?
