Brilliant Censored Movie Lines

.!#** !!*#* - don't worry, a rogue blob of jam hasn't fell onto our keyboard, we're simply highlighting how censorship can be as much a nuisance as a necessity.

Just ask Martin Scorsese for proof of that. Sprinkling almost as many swears as cocaine into his films over the years, it's almost unnatural when his profanity-laden masterpieces are edited for family viewing, cuss words making way for friendly ones.

Nonetheless, every once and a while we come across edited movie lines which, at least if you're looking for an offbeat sort of laugh, are on par with the original. Even Scorsese films.

After all, who doesn't guffaw at the thought of "monkey-fighting snakes on a Monday to Friday plane"? Not us, that's for sure.

Here are 15 unintentionally hilarious censored for TV movie lines you need to know:
