Abraham Lincoln once said, “If you get angry, count to 10.  If you get really angry, count to 100.”

I like Mark Twain’s version better.   “If you get angry, count to 10.  If you get really angry, start swearing.”

I admit it.  I am more Mark than Abe.

Do you know when I don’t like swearing?  I don’t like swearing during movies.  By the way, I am not talking about myself anymore.  That was soooo last paragraph.

If you, like me, would like to watch a movie from time to time without some Hollywood potty-mouth ruining the story, there is a way.  You can sign up for a Vidangel account.  Using Vidangel, you can bleep the swearing out.  (See what I did there?)

Not long ago, I watched The Big Short.  I was interested in the story behind the financial meltdown of 2007 – 2008.  Thanks to Vidangel, I could edit out all of the swearing.  Unfortunately, thanks to Hollywood, The Big Short, without profanity, is a silent movie.

By the way, Disney and several other Hollywood giants are after Vidangel right now.  I think they want to make sure we don’t forget what profanity sounds like.  Let’s stick it to the giants.  Let’s start watching movies the way Noah, Abraham, and Moses watched movies.  Without profanity.

If you already know about Vidangel, then this is a useless “Tip of the Week” for you.  But, you have read this far, and now you have an empty feeling in your soul.

For you, I will recommend a couple of movies.  Perhaps that will cheer you up.

Lately, I have watched (and thoroughly enjoyed) Bridge of Spies, starring Tom Hanks.  If you grew up during the Cold War, watch it.  You will love it.

If you are an American, perhaps you have heard of football.  I was deeply challenged by Concussion, starring Will Smith.  I suggest we all watch it every SuperBowl Sunday.

So, yeah.  If you want to watch clean movies, click here: https://www.vidangel.com
