Censoring PSAs

In honor of Jimmy Kimmel's Unnecessary Censorship segment, which I love, but don't catch often enough, we're starting something new here at HB: completely necessary censorship of public service announcements (PSAs).

Here's edition #1 (original here):

"On August 29, Hurricane Katrina unleashed the worst ******* disaster in our history. Thousands of AmeriCorps members immediately *********, helping the survivors of this ********.

AmeriCorps has special working agreements with the American Red Cross, FEMA, Habitat for Humanity and other ******* organizations that allow its members to support mass *******, collect and distribute needed *******, and reunite ********.

The response to this devastating ****** will be the largest volunteer mobilization in our nation’s history, and AmeriCorps will play a critical role in leading and coordinating that ********. But that’s nothing new for AmeriCorps because AmeriCorps responds every day to community ******* throughout the nation ******** kids, building ******** ******, cleaning up *******, and much more.

Get involved with AmeriCorps. Find the *********** that’s right for you by calling 800-942-2677 or visit We need your ****."

Obviously, the above does not reflect my view, Wiggins' view, or anyone's view on Americorps or anything described above. It's all in good fun. And if you don't like that, go **** yourself.

Maybe this would have been better if I'd used random words/expletives instead of asterisks.
