I saw UHF on VH1 Classic the other night, and I noticed something interesting: although VH1 cut a few superfluous scenes for time, they didn't butcher any of the remaining scenes for content. When Comedy Central used to air UHF in the '90s, they'd re-cut a few scenes to remove such "violent" shots as the poodles falling, the blood coming from Emo's hand and the library kid being sliced in half. VH1 didn't do any of that kind of ridiculous, arbitrary "won't someone please think of the children" censorship...WITH ONE EXCEPTION!!!
There is ONE WORD in UHF that they felt the need to censor, and replace with another word: "poop." When Stanley said "This is good watermel...tastes like poop," VH1 replaced the word "poop" with the word "corn." And they take the recording of the word "corn" from Stanley's next sentence, "I'm gonna eat some corn flakes."
So suddenly Stanley is saying "This is good watermel...tastes like corn. I'm gonna eat some corn flakes."
Arguably, this makes it even funnier. Your thoughts?
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn...that's alright because I like the way it hurts...
