    That's easy, just wrap it up in a Watchtower magazine and tell them that the magazine now comes in audio format, but it costs money now.

    Did the US military steal this idea from A Clockwork Orange? Fighting ultraviolence with music? Not very original if you ask me.

    True...but just because some people will claim that music is torture doesn't justify REAL forms of torture such as waterboarding.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Screw physical harm, play Barney and I'd say anything to anyone. I'd even make things up just to turn it off.

    That or balamory *shudders*

    Perhaps musician should stop produce "music" that can be used as torture?

    As for Barney: not even Capt. Kirk has the answer.

    If Capt. Kirk can't fix it, who can?

    I'm not sure which would be more torturous:
    24/7 rap or 24/7 Tejano.

    Please, where do I sign?! End the torture at my place of employment for once and for all. Corporate country at full blast in one department, classic rock at full volume from another. If I hear one more sorry-assed Carrie Underwood, Hank Jr, Aerosmith or Led Zeppelin tune, I'm going to puke up blood.

    Play the Village People on loop for a week. Everyone will be saying whatever you want, no need to be a macho man.
