image for FCC removes piss and tits from list of banned words
The FCC is considering allowing the slang term for this item.

The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced today that the words "piss" and "tits" will no longer be banned from the airwaves and radio and television stations may use them freely and without hindrance.

"We have narrowed the list of banned words to only five", said an FCC spokesperson. "Piss and tits are being used in everyday conversation even among Christian families and we feel they no longer represent a threat to the American public".

Comedian George Carlin disclosed the FCC list of "seven dirty words" during a stand-up routine in 1968. The banned words included shit, piss, fuck, cunt, motherfucker, cocksucker and tits. The new FCC regulations now include only the five remaining words.

"We are also considering removing shit from the list", the spokesperson continued. "Late night television frequently uses the word shit and some of its derivatives such as bullshit. We would still strongly recommend that television and radio stations use some other word such as 'excrement' or 'caca' for the time being."

The FCC claims there are currently no plans to legalize the remaining four words although, in certain circumstances, 'fuck' has been allowed so long as it is not in reference to copulation and is only used as a adverb or adjective.
