Parents Television Council Thinks ‘Boobs’ Is Profane

George Carlin did not.

According to the Parents Television Council, profanity is up 69 percent over the past five years. Oh no! We have become a nation of watchers of potty-mouthed TV! Or have we? Here is a list of some of the words that the PTC characterizes as profane: crap, boobs, "other breasts" (we assume this means tits, funbags, etc.), balls, "other genitals" (we assume this means junk, johnson, stuff, wang, schlong, etc.), douche, piss, screw, and suck. Please note that screw and suck are somehow distinct from euphemisms for fuck, which we assume include bang, rail, smoosh, etc. [HR]
