  • Something is rotten in Denmark

    The Danes' government may have hit an all-places all-times low in its efforts to get out the vote. I cannot be any more specific than that sentence.

    Please attempt to be more vague. If I look, I might be able to figure out what you're talking about.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

      This thread is pretty much just spam.

      There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

          If you really think that you "cannot be any more specific than that sentence" I would really hate to see when you're being cryptic or even slightly vague.

          I'm always still in trouble again

            Took me five seconds to find what Truthseeker is talking about. He's quite right. It's hilarious in a face palm kind of sense; someone's going to lose a job over this I suspect! And the reason for being coy is the full details would likely violate decorum!

            This CNN news report should pass muster, however. link to CNN report.
            Source: Danish election cartoon 'Voteman' pulled over scenes of sex, violence, CNN May 14


            It's a perennial problem. How do you persuade young, apathetic voters to go to the polls? Enter "Voteman" -- Denmark's rather ill-judged and short-lived cartoon solution.

            The cartoon opens with two apparently politically disaffected young men. The scene switches to Voteman, a muscle-bound, stubble-chinned superhero, answering a call asking him to persuade voters to have their say in the upcoming European Parliament elections.

            Naked, he leaps up from a bed surrounded by women apparently performing sex acts on him and -- having donned a leather waistcoat and trousers -- sets off from a Bond villain-esque island hideout on his mission, riding a pair of harnessed dolphins as waterskis.

            An orgy of cartoon violence follows -- one of the original men is decapitated, while other would-be non-voters are punched, slapped and tossed through the windows of a polling station to vote.

            The cartoon is the unlikely creation of the Danish Parliament's EU information center, originally posted to its official YouTube page.

            Less surprisingly perhaps, it has now been pulled and an apology made for its graphic sexual and violent content.

              I'm wondering what DE and Teal think what the spam is for.

                  So when they said they needed a strong man to inspire voting, how come their first instinct was immediately to dress him up in gay bondage gear? The only man of that type they knew?

                    You start a spam thread, you get spam - next time, don't be so vague. Sylas managed to find a reference that met Decorum - so you could have, too.
