Opposites detract

A lot of people are up in arms about Katy Perry's ostensibly suggestive video (of a rewritten-for-kids version of her hit "Hot and Cold") being pulled from "Sesame Street" and relegated to an online-only existence. But people who say things like "There is nothing suggestive about the video", "My daughter's Barbies are more suggestive than this", and "You have got to be kidding me" are missing the point. Obviously this video isn't actually risque in any way, and Sesame Street is trying to cover up the real reason it was pulled before a bigger controversy blows up. Take a look at this map:


That's right, Sesame Street is within mere blocks of Ground Zero!!! And let's take a look at these so-called "innocent" lyrics: "You're up, then you're down." You know what else was up, then down? That's right, the WORLD TRADE CENTER. This song is a secret celebration of the 9/11 attack against America, and while Katy Perry has the right to sing her degenerate song anywhere she likes, it's just the polite thing to do to relocate the GZKPS (Ground Zero Katy Perry song) to a less sensitive location. I applaud your decision, Sesame Street.
