Thursday Trivia

The answer to yesterday's bonus question for 1985 Week is:
Money For Nothing. (I've read it now cannot be played in Britain because of the word "faggot" in it.)

Today's question, the first in 1990-1999 Week, is:
In what year did the Taliban seize control in Afghanistan?

Wow. So we can use all sorts of profanity but not the word faggot. I wonder if they will sanitize Victorian literature that mentions how to build a fire.

Darren said...

Building fires was not the context of its use in that song, and you know it! Of course, that doesn't change the silliness of banning it.

Isn't "faggot" British slang for cigarette?

P.S. Dire Straits is still my favorite band.
