Rugby or porn?

New Zealand's rugby viewing public is outraged, it seems.

Not about the extra curricular activities of Jerome Kaino and Jimmy Cowan, nor about Brad Thorn's very passable imitation of Tana Umaga.

No, what has upset the New Zealand public is the fact that, for 4 mad minutes on Sunday afternoon, a "technical glitch" caused the Grassroots Rugby show on Prime Televsion to be interrupted by an adult pay-per-view hardcore porn channel. Instead of hard rucking they got...well, you know where I'm going with this.

Apparently an Auckland woman "watched in disbelief as the rugby turned to Desperate Black Wives 2". She said it "left little to the imagination."

One one father said that his 8-year-old son's "innocence had been ruined."

A Whangarei 12-year-old was "horrified, running around with her hands over her eyes saying eww and gross."

Formal complaints are expected to be made.

Now, I don't want to belittle the effects of exposing children to pornography, but don't any of these people know how to turn the TV off?

TF, turning off the TV would be too tough in New Zealand...sheep don't have Opposable thumbs or digits...

I tried to rush to the TV to turn it off.

But have you ever tried running with an erection?
