If I were you and had been lucky enough to write this intriguing text, I would email it (with a question) to Craig Ferguson (preferably via twitter) in hopes that he might read it to millions of viewers on The Late Late Show, broadcast on the major television network CBS in the states, but accessible all over the world. Many samples from the show available on youtube. He's presently the most brilliant talk show host in the US, despite his origins in Scotland, and censorship stands front and center as perhaps his major topoi. I watch his show virtually every night, trying to sort out what aspect might be thought of as performance art. My candidate: the appearances of Sid the Cussing Bunny from north London.
