Wow, I thought the US was tops when it came to being PC!!!

The Television Bureau of Canada seems to have taken things a bit too seriously, no?

PC? I didn't see anything wrong with that. Now I am no baseball buff, but it seems like it is his two sons pillow fighting, and then dad comes in and "whomps" one of them off the bed. It is meant to be funny. I don't think that it "promotes child abuse" like they say. Then again, I was brought up to repect my parents and other adults, and when I got out of line, (GASP) I got a spanking (CALL THE COPS). Today, parents can't discipline their kids. The crazies that DO abuse their children are the ones that ruin the right of a parent to do their job and be a parent. I mean, it isn't like he came into the room and hit him with a baseball bat!

Here it is thanks to the "good" folks at You Tube:
