"It's- It's migrating. It's all going away. Watch! Watch, watch it go. Duvet doesn't like being near me anymore. Oh. Well fuck that twat of a duvet! I'll get warm somewhere else. Dozey duvet."

Karen's notes: This is from the nest-egg. For those who don't know, a duvet is a down comforter. I know that many Americans are confused and think that a duvet is the cover that a comforter can be put into (I thought that myself), but that is actually called a duvet cover.
Adam often accuses me of stealing the duvet in the night. But I want to state that, at the time Adam said this, I looked over and he had plenty of duvet all crumpled up next to him.
Confession/Topic for debate: Now, listen, I need to be honest. Adam actually did say something last night. This is the first time ever that I have ever censored a quote. He insulted someone's singing by comparing it to a cat being sexually assaulted (in harsher language). Adam thought I was being overly sensitive on behalf of our readers, but I just couldn't put something out there making light of rape. It's not from a fear of offending anyone (I mean, seriously, look at all the shit I DO post), it was a concern for actually upsetting some people, particularly those for whom this is a very personal topic. I felt it would be irresponsible. What do you guys think? Am I being silly? Would anyone have been disturbed?
Added hours later: Wow, this has triggered a fascinating discussion in the comments.
Having read the comments, I'm definitely glad that I made the decision I did. I do see a difference between offending someone's sensibilities (as many of STM quotes might) and posting something that could hurt people.
A couple of commentors couldn't understand why, if I was choosing not to post it, I mentioned it— and the topic— at all. I think the sheer number of comments today answers that question: I think of the blog as a community, and I wanted to know what you guys thought about my dilemma. Thanks, everyone, for contributing. I've really enjoyed following the debate.
