This Movie Has Been Mollified

I get a Word of the Day emailed to me everyday.

Today's was:
mollify \MAH-luh-fye\ verb
*1 : to soothe in temper or disposition : appease
2 : to reduce the rigidity of : soften
3 : to reduce in intensity : assuage, temper

Whenever Gene and I watched a rented movie, he would always read the "This movie has been modified to fit your tv" statement as "This movie has been mollified..." and I mean always. I can still hear it whenever I watch a movie.

That is so excellent I can hardly stand it! As for me, I would never dare to use mollify in a sentence. I'd be too afarid of using it incorrectly and looking like a big dumbass. (and that some mean jerk like me would pick on me for it.)
