Kevin Smith Can’t Get Away with ‘Dick’

Wednesday, November 18 by

Censorship has struck again, and not even Kevin Smith can wield his mighty sword to defeat it. The TV networks are prudes and don’t like dirty words in their adveeeertissments (I wrote it like a proper British person would say it), so Smith’s new comedy is changing "Dicks" to "Cops" for a title of A Couple of Cops, and the result is not double-entendre-y.

This is disappointing because the new title doesn’t make me giggle, it makes me drool. Maybe it’s because I sometimes stick my pen too far up my nose, or it could be that it’s so boring my brain seizes up in an effort to comprehend such a generic transformation. Hey, all you old people watching NCIS! You gonna have a heart attack if you see "Dicks" come up on screen? No, the WORD! Ahhhh, I can’t talk to you people. (CinemaBlend

    There was a W.C. Fields movie called “The Bank Dick” in 1940! How far backwards our society does move.
