I'm watching Snatch on network television. I love me some terrible terrible edited-for-tv-ness. On top of all the 'freaking' and 'fancy,' on top of the de-slurring of the 'pikeys' into 'gypsies,' there is this priceless treasure:

Franky Four Fingers: So the biblical scholars mis-translated the Hebrew word for "young woman" into the Greek word for "virgin," which was a pretty easy mistake to make, since there is only a subtle difference in the spelling. But back then it was the "virgin" that caught people's attention. It's not every day a virgin conceives and bears a son. So you keep that for a couple of hundred years, and the next thing you know, you have the Roman Catholic church.

Now replace 'virgin' with 'girl.' It's not every day a girl conceives and bears a son? Priests and nuns say 'virgin.' I think it's safe for the CW at 9pm.

ETA: Ha! They de-fucked Mickie, too! I mean, really, what's the POINT?
