Or Maybe You Weren't Screwing Them Up

Bill -
I write my comments from a computer in my office (I don't have a PC at home).
My company employs an outfit called Websense to monitor - and if necessary deny access to - any sites it considers "inappropriate".
Every time you provide a link to the Cracked.com site, Websense blocks it, giving this reason:
Tasteless
So it follows that I've never seen any of the stuff you're quoting from Cracked.
Just thought you ought to know.
Anybody else have this problem?

Cracked is definitely tasteless. Those computers know their stuff. I've heard from one other person who has the same problem, so you're not alone.

I see a lot of screw ups with horde/hoard, gauntlet/gantlet, and people saying "chomped at the bit" (champed at the bit is correct). And then there's my pet peeve: calvary for cavalry.
