Censorship rarely has the desired impact. How many albums did NWA sell every time someone held a press conference to complain about Straight Outta Compton?

And, as Jimmy Kimmel had demonstrated, unnecessary censorship makes everything more comical. We also think it makes Sam Smith unbearably awesome chronicling of the $500 Craigslist rally car that much more hilarious, as Engineerman agrees in his [redacted] COTD.
