Smoking's for Losers... If You're a Bitch

I don't know how many of you out there have Boomerang (channel 343 on Time Warner Cable), but it's a channel that plays classic cartoons 24/7. Pretty cool stuff. I recently heard that media watchdogs have decided to edit classic episodes of Tom & Jerry, removing any depictions of either character smoking under the assumption that kids will see it and suddenly feel the need to smoke. Of all the things they could possibly edit, such as mallet attacks, dropping anvils, and the various guns and knives used throughout the show's history, they decide to edit smoking. That's the biggest load of BULLSHIT I've ever heard. They should just show 24 hours worth of black screen just incase some moron kid decides to shower with a dinosaur ala The Flinstones or mate with blue ala The Smurfs.
