What do Johnny Depp, Garfield, Paris Hilton and roast pork have in common? In China, the answer is that a new government-mandated Internet filter rates some pictures of all four of them as bad for your moral health.
Johnny Depp? Don’t care about him. Paris Hilton? Don’t care, and China might be making a smart play here, to be honest, but, Garfield motherfuckers?
I’m alright with blowing up China for banning Garfield as bad for the moral health of their people.
They set this whole thing up to block porn and violence, which hey, fuck ’em for that, but even in that silliness, there are still lines you do not cross. Garfield is that line.
Maybe ban Odie. Maybe.
