Action Man, Ride My Pokemon Like A Pony!!! Ahh...

Innocent cartoon character's name turned out to be a porn star? Read more here and here.
Interesting excerpts:
Laporan pada tahun 2000 itu menunjukkan kebanyakan laman web terbabit berselindung di sebalik penggunaan nama yang `bersih' daripada unsur kelucahan.

Menteri Sains, Teknologi dan Inovasi, Datuk Seri Dr. Jamaludin Jarjis ketika mendedahkan perkara itu berkata, berdasarkan laporan Barisan Bertindak Pencegahan Penderaan Seks Kanak-Kanak (MCPCSA), terdapat kira-kira 1.5 juta laman web lucah dan 74 peratus daripadanya adalah berselindung di sebalik nama `bersih' daripada unsur kelucahan.

Beliau memberi contoh nama-nama seperti Pokemon, My Little Pony atau Action Man adalah contoh 26 laman web yang mengandungi ratusan sambungan kepada web lucah.

Science, Technology and Innovations Minister Datuk Seri Dr Jamaluddin Jarjis cited a case in 2000 when a search on these characters turned up 26 websites containing hundreds of links to indecent material, of which 30% were hardcore pornography.


I'm not sure what sort of search engines the schools used, but when I tried to search for 'Pokemon' with Google and Yahoo, even with the filter for search being turned off, the search results turned out pretty clean and decent.

Anyway, the so-called 'case' was like 5 years ago-too-old to conclude that major search engines now are not safe for children. Moreover, any simple search engine now would have filter settings to enable explicit phrases or pictures to be filtered out.

Just curious, isn't that My Little Pony is like so outdated already? Although I do not follow children's trend, isn't that the more recent cartoon characters are like SpongeBob SquarePants? Or maybe the children just typed in 'Pokemon sex' or '*Insert your favourite cartoon character here* sex' at search engines. Or they may be too smart to type in phrases like 'Pukiman' instead of 'Pokemon' or 'Ride me like a pony' instead of 'My little pony' or 'Man in action' instead of 'Action Man.'

Personally, my favourite cartoon character would be Tweety.

"I tawt I saw me nekid on a pown site. Yes, I did! I did!"

and BTW, the Crazy Frog is indeed naked with its ding dong being out all the time, even though amphibians shoot their loads in the water and swim to the eggs.
