Today’s “Gee, You Think?” Moment Brought To You By: Britain

Any article that starts out thusly is sure to contain some other comedic gems:

LONDON (AFP) – It was when a topless woman appeared on screen speaking Italian that devout Christians Alan and Anne Leigh-Browne realised the Doris Day film they had bought might have been wrongly packaged.

Really? What tipped you off?
Of course, their primary concern was For The Children:

“Our biggest concern with the whole episode was that small children could easily have bought the film and been exposed to its content,” Alan Leigh-Brown, 67, said on Thursday.

Their first clue that something was amiss was a warning advising against showing the film to children.

“Then some topless young women appeared and started talking in Italian, we were horrified, it’s not what you expect from a Doris Day film. [emphasis mine]

Really? I could have sworn that Pillow Talk featured several nude scenes.

“It was a pretty raunchy, explicit film, it certainly pulled no punches. My wife and I were very shocked but we watched it until the end because we couldn’t believe what we were seeing. [riiiiiiighhht. -ed.]
“The film became progressively more graphic, there was no plot to it, it was just sex.”

Which of course necessitated an extended viewing of the film by the couple.

A spokesman for the supermarket urged the couple to return the DVD so the matter could be investigated.

Mmmmhmmmm. “Investigate” the DVD, errrm, matter.
h/t Wizbang.
