: : 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?

: Eric

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 . . .
