MPAA Rating System, with G through PG-13MPAA Rating System, as explained by College Humor

I’ve always thought there should be something in the neighborhood of a PG-16 — or either the relaxation of the R or PG-13 ratings. The problem is that studios either release films that are solidly PG-13 (which, as this poster explains, is basically PG fluff with some silly TV violence and maybe the word "shit") or solid R and cut down to 13 or just give up rather than try to find a middle ground.

Anyway, the whole system is garbage anyway, as this poster points out so expertly.
