Whenever a movie or a TV show has a rather strong instance of language, the lines are often edited down to be appropriate for certain audiences in different countries.
Yet, sometimes it seems the censors are rather adventurous with the replacements they choose. From lines well deserving of a slight tweak to ones that aren't offensive at all, here are 12 instances of censorship that will definitely surprise you:
1. Fight Club
Original line: "I want to have your abortion."
Changed to: "I haven't been f*cked like that since grade school."
2. Dumb & Dumber
Original line: "Right on my ass, after you kiss it."
Changed to: "Right on my sandwich."
3. Pulp Fiction
Original line: "My eyes are wide f*cking open."
Changed to: "My eyes are wide focused open."
4. Kill Bill: Vol 1
Original line: "My name's Buck and I'm here to f*ck!"
Changed to: "My name's Buck and I'm here to party!"
Here's the original:
5. Mean Girls
Original line: “Amber D’Alessio gave a blow job to a hot dog.”
Changed to: “Amber D’Alessio made out with a hot dog.”
6. Silence of the Lambs
Original line: "I can smell your c*nt."
Changed to: "I can smell your scent."
7. The Usual Suspects
Original line: “Hand me the keys, you fucking cocksucker!”
Changed to: “Hand me the keys, you fairy godmother!”
I can't wait until "godmother" becomes an official term of insult.
8. See No Evil, Hear No Evil
Original line: "Pussy!"
Changed to: "Pasta!"
9. Snakes on a Plane
Original line: "I've had it with the motherf*cking snakes on this motherf*cking plane."
Changed to: "I've had it with these monkey-fighting snakes on this Monday to Friday plane."
Here's the hilarious TV edit:
10. The Walking Dead
Original line: "They're f*cking with the wrong people."
Changed to: "They're screwing with the wrong people."
11. The Big Lebowski
Original line: “This is what happens when you f*ck a stranger in the ass!”
Changed to: “This is what happens when you fight (or find) a stranger in the Alps.”
The Alps!? What have the Alps got to do with anything?
12. The Exorcist
Original line: "Your mother sucks cocks in Hell, Karras, you faithless slime.”
Changed to: “Your mother sews socks that smell, you faithless slime.”
Heaven forbid, smelly socks!
