The Parents Television Council says Spears song has secret obscene meaning
NEW YORK - The Parents Television Council is warning parents about the Britney Spears song "If U Seek Amy" and urging radio stations not to broadcast it because the nonprofit organization believes it "would violate the broadcast indecency law" if aired between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Saying the title phrase quickly out loud produces a sound akin to spelling out the F-word, said PTC president Tim Winter. "There is no misinterpreting the lyrics to this song, and it's certainly not about a girl named Amy," he said of the track, the third single from Spears' new Jive album, "Circus."

"It's one thing for a song with these lyrics to be included on a CD so that fans who wish to hear it can do so, but it's an entirely different matter when this song is played over the publicly-owned airwaves, especially at a time when children are likely to be in the listening audience," Winter says.

Founded in 1995, the PTC describes itself as "a nonpartisan education organization advocating responsible entertainment." Jive was unavailable for comment on the PTC's advisory.

And did you know if you play the track backwards, you can clearly hear "Paul is dead!"

4. Is it still illegal to shoot morons like that?
I mean, you don't have to kill them, just shoot them in the foot or something. Same damn people who wanted Elvis videotaped only from the waist up. History is one long struggle to overcome conservative idiots.

8. Two words: Tipper Gore
Google what she was up to in the 1980's. As a fan of many of the bands she was attacking, I will still give her a hearty "Fuck you Tipper!"

13. Not even close. Even Frank Zappa admitted he misunderstood what she was doing.
She was for putting advisory stickers on albums marketed to children to let the parents know what the albums were about. She didn't try to ban anything. Zappa later apologized to her.

15. You are correct...I withdraw
I was going off of my memories of her work from over 20 years ago (back before we had the internets to research this stuff). She still seemed like a stick in the mud, but at least she wasn't seeking an outright ban

16. I had the same memories. That's what the media gave us.
Learned the real story later, when Gore was running for president.
