Stone and Parker vs. the MPAA re: Team America’s NC-17

The guys who brought you South Park are close to delivering Team America: World Police, in which Thunderbirds-esque puppets lurch into action in the Global War on Terra. But there’s a hitch: the filmmakers are contracturally obligated to deliver the film with an R rating, and the thought police at the MPAA say a scene showing simulated puppet sex requires an NC-17.

I boggle in consternation. We’re talking puppets. With no sex organs, even.

Anyway. From The Guardian: Puppet oral sex goes against grain for US censors.
