Jerry Springer The Opera

Yahoo! News - Jerry Springer Opera, featuring 'gay Jesus', sparks record 5,500 complaints

"The opera contains a total of 3,168 'f'-words and 297 'c'-words. The expletive-laden songs include Pregnant By A Transsexual and Here Come The Hookers."

Whoa. They drop the f-bomb 3,168 times? In a 2 hour musical that is one f-bomb dropped every 2 1/2 seconds. Is it just a continuoues chant? Damn right complain about it, that kind of swearing can only lead to chaos. But boy I want to see it. Really.

The BBC will be showing the production on TV this weekend: the protests have been pouring in already, and it hasn't even aired!

Very silly.

Damien, they multiplied the occurrences of the word by the number of people who sung it, ie 1 ocurrence x 100 members of the chorus = 100 uses of the word. Cute.
