In case you missed it, Seth Macfarlane's outing as 2013's Oscars presenter has ruffled more than a few feathers both in Hollywood and on the Twittersphere. Citing nominee Jessica Chastain's performance in Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty as, "A woman's innate ability to never ever let anything go," and making a domestic violence joke about Rihanna and Chris Brown has upset more that few people, but it's his opening number, We Saw Your Boobs that's really got tongues wagging - and not in a good way.
The video, screened at the ceremony, features Seth MacFarlane singing a jaunty number about which actress's breasts have been seen on film. Singled out were Naomi Watts in Mulholland Drive, Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut and Jodie Foster in The Accused. Just in case you weren't familiar with the film references made in the song, The Sun put together a handy cut-out-and-keep guide (complete with pictures) entitled Revealed: Nude Babes From Seth's 'We Saw Your Boobs' Song. Nice.
Quite rightly the internet's been up in arms about the whole affair; here's our favourite responses to Seth's outmoded frat boy act.

2. Jane Fonda
"What I really didn’t like was the song and dance number about seeing actresses boobs. I agree with someone who said, if they want to stoop to that, why not list all the penises we’ve seen? Better yet, remember that this is a telecast seen around the world watched by families with their children and to many this is neither appropriate or funny. I also didn’t like the remark made about Quvenzhane and Clooney, or the stuff out of Ted’s mouth and all the comments about what women do to get thin for their dresses. Waaaay too much stuff about women and bodies, as though that’s what defines us."

Not all that catchy, but amusing all the same.
