It’s Official: You Can’t Say the F-Word on Network Television April 28, 2009

Posted by Sobek in News.

New Supreme Court decision here. (PDF)

The thing I can’t figure out is, the opinion keeps referring to “the F-Word,” but I didn’t see where they tell us what that word is.  Honestly, I’m baffled.  Apparently there’s some word out there — and apparently it starts with the letter F — that no one is supposed to say on network television, but no one can know what word they aren’t supposed to say because the Supreme Court won’t tell us.

Feet?  Ferret?  France?

Fistula?

Flatulence?

2. lauraw - April 28, 2009

I was hoping it was Furtado, but no such luck.

3. Sobek - April 28, 2009

Flailing?

4. The Mormons - April 28, 2009

We’re guessing it’s either “flipping” or “fetching.”

5. Michael - April 28, 2009

You fools — the word is “fornicating.” Of course they don’t want that vile subject discussed on TV.

Fiscal responsibility

Sad but true…

16. daveintexas - April 28, 2009

This is why they won’t put me on television.

Fettucine?

Michael - April 28, 2009

Hmmmm. I think James is a first-time commenter who has delurked, so everybody be nice to him.

*Michael does his fake genial smile*

James, what is this “fisting” of which you speak with apparent knowledge, unbeknownst to us innocents?

31. kevlarchick - April 28, 2009

Funbags. heh. Makes me giggle. Never knew that term until I got on the internets.

32. Michael - April 28, 2009

(Also, James, you meant to say “it’s” with an apostrophe.)

33. Michael - April 28, 2009

Never knew that term until I got on the internets.

Well, that’s because you had not encountered seasoned professionals on this subject. Like Geezer, who had a stellar career bouncing photons off of funbags, a task which required the utmost concentration on the bouncing targets of his spotlight.

34. Lipstick - April 28, 2009

Heh. James is getting Michael’s full Punctuation Police Treatment.

Hi KC, where have you been? Missed you.

35. daveintexas - April 28, 2009

funbags are teh fun

36. geoff - April 28, 2009

funbags are teh fun

…’til they poke somebody’s eye out.

37. Edward Von Bear - April 28, 2009

Punctuation police? I thought that was Musli’s job.

38. Pupster - April 28, 2009

Why, there must be at least 99 words for bewbs

39. Pupster - April 28, 2009

Uhm…so, you just paste in a you-tube link and it embeds. Hokay.

Was there a staff meeting I missed?

40. Michael - April 28, 2009

Was there a staff meeting I missed?

Yes. We were trying to prevent anyone from Rosettafying our threads, but I guess that’s over now.

41. Vmaximus - April 28, 2009

2 pics before I call it a night.
Bear. Titled you want me to go where?
You want me to go where?

And my nightly Max Pic

Michael if you get tired of me spamming you with pics of my mutts let me know I will quit immediately.

42. Michael - April 28, 2009

The Spurs’ season is going to be over in about 10 minutes.

Oh well. At least a Texas team advances.

43. Michael - April 28, 2009

Michael if you get tired of me spamming you with pics of my mutts let me know I will quit immediately.

Vmax, I’ve said this before — you can do the nightly Max Pic until the end of time for all I care.

But, personally, I would rather see pics of the new dog that’s waiting for you.

44. Lipstick - April 28, 2009

Pups, your video forgot to mention “bristols”.

45. Mrs. Peel - April 28, 2009

ahh, flashblock.

*smiles smugly*

What? You couldn’t find Britney Spears doing “Satisfaction?”

48. BrewFan - April 29, 2009

What? You couldn’t find Britney Spears doing “Satisfaction?”

hahahaha!

49. kevlarchick - April 29, 2009

Lips, I’ve been around. I can’t post on IB at work. They actually expect me to WORK. Doesn’t make sense.

50. daveintexas - April 29, 2009

Did he say “fun bags”?

Can’t member

51. BrewFan - April 29, 2009

They actually expect me to WORK.

Nazis!

52. Sobek - April 29, 2009

There’s a new Supreme Court case today, Dean v. U.S., that repeatedly uses the phrase “accidental discharge.” I don’t know what the case is about because I keep giggling too much to read it.

53. skinbad - April 29, 2009

*picks up tongs*

“I would like to present prosecution exhibit A.”
