Fox is playing "Die Hard", he actually said "Turn the fuck around." Cool! I guess the FCC rules are actually in effect.

Yippee ki-yay motherfucker!

Was this when the cop showed up and he threw the body onto the car? Also, did the bleep "Yippee ki-yay motherfucker!"?

Bruce is a hardcore cussing sailor!

Why is this cool? Because they are allowing more profanity on television. As the father of two young girls, I think it is disgusting. If you want profanity, rent a video or go to a bar.

And people look at me funny when I tell them we don't have broadcast or cable/sat TV in our house..."Hey- if I want to look at a toilet, I'll go in the bathroom, OK?" [rolleyes]

For the broadcast version, Bruce Willis actually overdubed the line to: "Turn the TRUCK around!" That is the version that FOX played this evening.

profanity coming along by surprize when you have children is bad, no question. a fact of life is that swearing happens in the real world,and in certain circumstances, such as is depicted in most action movies, it can occur quite often. i think it's nice that i'm not required to be deprived of seeing a movie as it was made because it was edited down because it "might" upset "some" viewers. it might not be practical, but it would be great if some movies were released to tv in both the editted and uneditted versions. as it stands, the movie is best released AS IT WAS MADE. it's up to the parents to check out the beginning of the movie or the guide to take note of adult language/nudity/violence/ etc. and for the parents to decide weather or not it is appropriate for their children to watch. they also have blocks that you can program into your cable to keep kids from viewing certain rated things. time and place for everything, even swearing. it shouldn't be everywhere, but it shouldn't be "banned" from all places either.

Yeah, I figured that out after they completely deleted the "Yippee Ki-yay" line. [:(]

Umm you're the parent here. Watching what your kids listen to/watch is [b]YOUR[/b] job. Why is it not cool? Just because you said so or what? Maybe he doesn't have a problem with cussing, so why should he have to go to a bar or rent a video?

So, is this considered progress? Has the FCC raised the bar?
Link Posted: 12/29/2003 3:44:33 AM EDT
A guy at work yesterday was telling me that per new FCC standards [i]fuck[/i] could be said on air if the context was non-sexual. Thus,"turn the fuck around", according the rumor, would be cool while "motherfucker" would be bleeped. I thought he was full of poo at the time he was telling me this.
Link Posted: 12/29/2003 3:57:19 AM EDT
It'd be a sad day if "fuck" was allowed on network television. Heck, I was shocked the first time I heard "bitch." Couldn't believe I heard that word on broadcast TV.

My Mother asked me what a DVD was. I told her and asked if she wanted one. I got her a VCR some years ago and she was concerned she wouldnt be able to use all her tapes. I got her a combo unit, [b]with a language filter[/b]. And yes it works well.

Heard "shit" on NYPD blue the other day. Didn't bother me. Kids shouldn't be watching NYPD blue anyway. Hell, they shouldn't be up that late. The argument that certain things shouldn't be included in shows that are already unsuitable for children is stupid. If your kid is up at 11Pm on a school night, watching a violent cop show (or die hard) with already adult content, I bet that they've heard "fuck" or "shit" more than once, and very likely directed at them by their parents.

Sorry to say but your "kids" learn all the "words" at school.
Link Posted: 12/29/2003 9:55:02 AM EDT
make the words normal, get rid of the stigma. once it's normal it won't be such a big deal. it's up to you if you want to use them..and possibly sound very white trash in the process.

I learned the words from my dad. So it made little sense to me when he beat my ass for saying things I'd heard him say.

It eludes me why people think the world a better place when they can hear the F-bomb on TV. Are their vocabularies so limited, and their ability to verbalize thought so limited as to NEED that word??? You know what they say - "Profanity is just evidence of a weak mind expressing itself forcefully." So true.

I disagree completely. Profanity is used for effect. If used properly, it gets the desired effect. This intellecutal elitism from the "I don't use profanity" crowd is pretty pathetic. You're so smart you don't have to cuss, yet you're too stupid to understand that it's just a word. Allow my weak mind to provide you with another fitting quote. "Sticks & stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me".

Norman - Why is it that I ALWAYS net you when I post that "weak mind" quote??? [}:D] Its happened SEVERAL times. Point is... I can accomplish the same effect WITHOUT profanity.

So in summation what you are saying ETH is that you have judged her abilities to properly and effectively represent her clients in a court of law because she used the acronym for F or U nlawful C arnal K nowledge interesting. It surely must have power that word.

Originally Posted By EricTheHun: Profanity is certainly used for effect all right.

She was leaving a large law firm and wanted to see if I might send her some referrals to help establish her new practice. 'Absolutely', I said. As we continued to talk, she casually used the 'f' word in her conversation with me. I was floored, to say the least. Now she was about 25-27 years of age, using the 'f' word on a colleague who is old enough to be her father. That shows me an absolute failure of good sense and discretion on her part. I could have easily said, 'Pardon me, Miss, but I would never consider sending a referral to any attorney who didn't have enough common sense [u]not[/u] to use such a word in their ordinary conversation with a colleague.' But I didn't. Now, I think that it very unlikely that I will ever send her anyone but the dregs of society that enter into my office. So, if the 'f' word is useful for effect, then her use of that word sure had an effect, although I doubt it's the effect that she thought it might have. I suppose she thought it's use would impress me with how forceful or hard-nosed she would be in representing any referred clients. It didn't work. Eric The(Stern)Hun[>]:)]

Hun, what did she look like[}:D]? I agree on the proffessional dialogue but did you ever think she was trying to just be herself around you because she thought of you as a friend? Maybe she even wanted a little of The Hun lovin'? I curse like a Sailor, but then again I am a Sailor so I guess it balances out. I really don't care and I can't wait until there's FFN on network TV cause I wanna see that blond on NYPD Blue buck nekkid! Just censor what the kids can watch. My little girl is 6 so she has no interest in anything that isn't aired on the Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, or Disney channels. Not to get off topic but that Sponge Bob character is annoying.

Not to speak for Eric, but I think that "being herself" was EXACTLY what ETH was afraid of. Fact is, when you professionally refer a friend or colleague of yours to someone such as this female attorney, YOUR reputation is at stake. If indeed she was "being herself", that ALONE is reason enuf to NOT refer a friend to a profane person.

According to what I heard on Rush last week, the new FCC rules allow the F word to be used as an adjective but not as a verb. Not a prude, but I don't need it in my face, in my house in an unexpected manner either. The "shock value" is rapidly depleting while the plain old vulgarity and lack of respect remains the same.
Link Posted: 12/29/2003 12:07:18 PM EDT
playmakers has a few Shit's and maybe a fuck or 2, but if your letting anyone under like 14 watch playmakers WOW, also comedy central with southpark, bigger longer and uncut, UNedited, is played sometimes, also they had an eposode they said shit well over 100 times i think, they actually had a counter counting it!... i still dont see whats the big deal, crap and shit mean the same thing, can be used in the same context, but yet one is a NO-NO and the other is just fine?? i dont get it!

Well, that's great. College English majors will now be able to find a job after graduating. "Well, in this case, the F-word was used with the suffix "-ing" , before the plural possessive noun, making it a participle, and therefore an adjective. Had the actor used it as a direct object following an action verb, that would be unacceptable." [:D]

Awww, fuck it. Heheheh. I do believe it is better not to use profane language...but sometimes it adds humor or spice to the conversation. Think I'm full of shit? Go fuck yourself! [:D]

Where is Bobby Knight when we need him? If there ever was a profane artist it is he! He can tell you every single use for the word FUCK! Chevy Chase is another good one. People lighten up a bit. If you don't like it don't say it!
