* Top ten conservative idiots. excerpt:

7. Daniel Dean Thompson

"Over the past couple of years a number of companies have sprung up to cater to the conservative movie buff and his oh-so-offended eyes. These companies edit the naughty bits out of Hollywood movies - bare boobies, swearing, ultraviolence, etc. - and market them as 'clean' versions.

"Not only does this system allow concerned moms and dads to take one more lazy step back from the parenting process, it improves the movies too. You haven't see 'Scarface' until you've seen Tony Montana scream 'Say ello to my leedle fren!' followed by a black screen and the words 'The End.'

"Anyway, sure as day follows night, conservative moralists get busted for evil-doing - so it probably won't surprise you to learn that the owner of Flix Club, a Utah-based company that marketed 'clean' versions of movies for conservative parents, was arrested last week for child sex abuse.

A Utah retailer of family-friendly tapes and DVDs - Hollywood films with the 'dirty parts' cut out of them - has been arrested for trading sex with two 14-year-old girls.

Orem police say Flix Club owner Daniel Dean Thompson, 31, and Issac Lifferth, 24, were booked into the Utah County jail on charges of sexual abuse and unlawful sexual activity with a 14-year-old.

"If this guy's convicted, I hope the judge cuts out the part where he gets parole."
