It's a question we've all asked ourselves at one point or another in our lives. Why isn't there more female screaming and people pissing on themselves in videogames? The Postal series tried to bring these noble experiences to the world of interactive entertainment, but for all the franchise's tastelessness, it were these two items that were considered too extreme for Western audiences.

"Well, it was kind of weird and amusing when we had to cut all the female moans and screams out of Postal 1 for release in Britain due to sensitivity surrounding the tragic death of Princess Diana," explains lead designer Steve Wik. "Interestingly, we had problems with the pissing in Postal II in America. It seems that some consider it a 'sex act.' It's ironic because the only reason we put it in the game was to provide a method of putting yourself out when you caught on fire! ... We were so naive ..."

It just goes to show how dirty minded the so-called moral majority are. Only someone with a truly filthy mind could see a man pissing on himself to put out a fire and instantly link it to sex, but it's ironically how the moral fundamentalist right-wingers seem to think.

That said, I think linking female screams to Princess Diana is far more stupid than linking urine to sex.
