ClearPlay (via orangebones) is a content-filtering company whose custom DVD players will automatically remove sex, violence, and profanity from the discs you rent. I guess this means it's now safe to sit down with the kids and watch some porn.

F: Oh, you made it here just in time! I simply can't get the DSL working!
M: No problem, ma'am. If you allow me to step inside, I'll take a look.
F: I'm... very grateful.

F: Your job must be stressful. Your shoulders look so tense.
M: There's a lot of... pressure, yes.
F: Why don't I—
[sudden screen blip]
F: Well! If my router isn't promiscuous enough from now on, I know who to call!
M: That you do, ma'am. That you do.
