Christian fundamentalist Bob McCoskrie doesn't like The Simpsons much.

In 2005 he went to the trouble of lodging a complaint with the Broadcasting Standards Authority about a particular episode of the long-running and highly successful show.

Bob was offended that the words 'wanker' and 'ass' were used in the show, claiming that this a breach of good taste and decency. Bob was apparently speaking for us all when he said that the use of the words 'wanker' and 'ass' was offensive to New Zealanders.

Bob's complaint was, not unsurprisingly, not upheld. The BSA pointed out that the show was rated PGR and was broadcast in a PGR timeslot.

Bob McCoskrie - keeping the country safe from yellow-skinned cartoon characters. Doh!
