The 700 dirty words you can't say in Mortal Kombat

So… some mischievous hacker dug waaaay the hell into their PS3 copy of Mortal Kombat last week, and lo and behold, a wealth of ridiculous information came to light. On-disc DLC, alternate costumes, and other potential modern day controversies were allegedly revealed. However, we were far more fascinated by the list of words, as in text, banned from being used by players in the game. Join us as we read through several dozen salty-tongued highlights of extremely foul irony in TalkRadar 148! NSFW, provided your ears share an office.

Above: Decapitations? All good. The words "drug," "boner," or "sega?" BANNED!

Mortal Kombat, a series renowned for over-the-top depictions of brutality and one time poster boy for gaming’s anti-censorship debate, has a list of text it considers too gosh darn naughty for gamers to direct at one another while tearing each other’s heads off?! Overlooking the irony, what’s even more outstanding is the thoroughness of the list of words. TWENTY FOUR PAGES worth of some of the wildest racial slurs, innuendo, and profanity you have (and have never) heard! FYI There’s more profanity in the full episode!

    "Eat my shorts" is on the list? Bart Simpson will be so upset.

    Ass clown, Ass goblin, Ass reamer,...for a game that's rated M, and also brutally violent and graphic, they sure don't like the word ass. It's ironic you can't say words relating to ass & pussy with the way that the female characters are dressed on the game...

    I didn't hear Asshat on that list. I will try.

    George Carlin would be proud, in a way.
  • juangarcia07 - May 2, 2011 4:15 a.m.

    Did they just put the entire urban dictionary in there LOL
  • FanofSaiyan - May 2, 2011 2:27 a.m.

    This was all found in the code of the game? That's amazing! I say we get some answers from the team that made Mortal Kombat and find out the story behind it!

    A picture of George Carlin next to Mortal Kombat. My two favorite things. Life is now complete.

    "Now who am I going to kneel before" That had me in stitches.
  • Oliolioliooo - May 1, 2011 10:36 a.m.

    The 267 words that I love to use now can't?! I HATE THIS!
  • Japanaman - May 1, 2011 3:15 a.m.

    SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! I can't believe this list of garbage my ears can't bear to listen to. I don't know all you said, but I wonder if you can use the following words: Anal Rententive But Tocks Room Cracken Hole of No Return Poop Chute Dough Popper Charlie Sheen Room Goddess Winning Nudist Naked Porn Beer Nuts Nutcracker Oh, I should have my brain washed out with soap. Lava soap. Pumice Powered.

    You learn something new every day.
  • CoryM1134 - May 1, 2011 1:17 a.m.

    You can't say "eat my shorts." Um..
  • GhostofTaft - April 30, 2011 9:54 p.m.

    I think that's just because there are some words they're not allowed to say, since the podcast is attached to the website.
  • mrplow8 - April 30, 2011 7:13 p.m.

    I like how the guys in the video will say "towel head" and "homo", but they're afraid to say "nigger."
  • AlphaAGENT144 - April 30, 2011 5:35 p.m.

    lol George Carlin
  • MoChilla - April 30, 2011 5:18 p.m.

    The spanish part is really badass!
  • Imp0ssibl3 - April 30, 2011 5:17 p.m.

    A lot of people are wandering why "sega" is a banned word. That is because "sega" means "wank" in Italian. Yea, thats right.

    I laughed so hard at gangbang genocide
