Christian conservatives are up in arms over a Dec. 11 broadcast of the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men in which actor Charlie Sheen sang a bawdy version of the Christmas carol “Joy to the World.”
Bob Knight, director of the Media Research Center's Culture and Media Institute, denounced the parody lyrics as “an anthem of alley-cat culture” and a symptom of Hollywood’s mission to “glorify sexual anarchy.” American Family Association founder Donald E. Wildmon has launched an online protest campaign against the network.
The lyrics in question are as follows: “Joy to the world, I’m getting laid; I’m getting laid tonight. We’ll light the yule log, deck the halls, and then we’ll play some jingle balls. It’s been a real long wait – this is our second date! It’s Christmas Eve and I’m getting laid.”
