: : 2) Can you use the word "bastard" on US network telly? Obviously you can, but was there a fuss about it?
: Yep, you can openly use the word "bastard" on American television with no fuss at all. I believe that there are only seven words that you can't use...Let me think...Fuck, shit, cock...Little help here?
According to George Carlin (or, more accurately, my memory of George Carlin's routine, which may be faulty) are: shit, piss, fuck, cunt, motherfucker, cocksucker, and tit. I think. Though that was done in the seventies, and things have gotten a little looser since then . . .
