Another Dispatch from Surrealiland

Certain things can only happen in Latin American countries. To wit:
Venezuelan TV has taken The Simpsons off the air because it considers it not suitable for children. (They were showing it in the morning, like a regular cartoon for kids). Now they are going to show it at a later time slot. Okay, so they didn't get the memo about how The Simpsons is not technically a kiddie show, although frankly, there is nothing in it that wouldn't make a kid smarter.
So what do they replace it with that is wholesome, educational and perfectly suitable for children? Baywatch. BAYWATCH.
Really, words fail me. But such is life in the tropics.
