In today's fucking legal news.

SCOTUS held unconstitutional, 8-0, the FCC regulation making broadcast licensees responsible for "fleeting expletives" spoken on-air.

"This is really, really fucking brilliant."
- Bono 

So yeah, that was the bridge-too-far 2003 Golden Globes acceptance exclamation that put the FCC's verbal hygiene enforcement squad into a tizzy.

The net effect of this ruling is that FCC must now restrict its old-fartitude to telling kids at the bus station to put away their goldanged phone and pull up their flippin' pants.


Reached for comment, the FCC stared for a minute and said, "I used to stack fucks like you five feet high in Korea."

You gotta wonder how our SCOTUS can get a ruling so right and then turn around and take a big fat dump in affirming its Citizen United holding. Jebus! ;)
