I’m sure the world thinks this is extremely funny, but the language is approaching x rated, offensive, crude, and i was appalled that my 18 year old Christian granddaughter thought this was acceptable to watch and laughed at it.

I can only believe that our kids are so immersed in this rot they no longer can tell what is acceptable for a Christian to watch in good conscience.

Of course as a man I have heard all this stuff among guys (I call it locker room talk) but hate to see the young girls immersed in it.  I gave this up when I accepted Christ.

The content details above say it better and I would add the use of the F word in every other sentence to the list.
