Moto X doesn't want you writing swear words on it, thanks

0-pl04TBe1pghfJkvB Motorola's new smartphone, the Moto X, comes with a feature called Moto Maker which basically allows you to put words on the back of it, like you used to be able to do with iPods. However, you can't write anything on there as, so it appears, Motorola are a bit prudish.

Over at, they decided to run something of a test, tapping in a load of crass phrases and such, to see what sticks.


Obviously, all the biggies weren't allowed (f*ck, b*tch, sh*t, and all that) and you get a message saying "we'd rather you not say that. How about another try?" You also can't engrave your Moto X with things like 'Apple', 'BlackBerry', 'HTC', but weirdly, you can have 'iPhone'.

Also banned are blowjob, cunnilingus, buttsex, boner and, curiously, vagina. They will allow 'carpet muncher', but won't allow 'Dick Nixon'. Shame, if you happen to be called Dick Nixon (in more ways than one). You also can't say 'what's up pussy cat?', which is just weird.

As the picture shows, 'rectal probe', is completely fine though.

If you want the full list and a whole load of pictures of phones with a load of mucky phrases on, check out the report. Obviously, it contains alorra, lorra swearing.

    Well this is just amazing, Motorola still make phones! Bum those foxes you herb smokin' Tennants drunkers. I noticed some commenters calling each other names earlier and wanted to come and play as well but I was a bit late, hopefully I can make up for it now. The next person to post is a tosser and their comment is obviously rubbish and not valid unless they are saying something good about me in which case they ae right bit still a tosser. That is all, you can go now.
