Who the fuck are you?

Ah, thank God for the Parents Television Council. While people such as Sir Bob Geldof and Bono have wasted their time and money campaigning for aid to the poor in Africa, the PTC has taken steps to address the much more serious issue of the word “fuck” being aired on national television – again!

The PTC has filed a complaint with the FCC over ABC”s airing of the unedited line “Who the fuck are you” in The Who”s classic song “Who Are You?”. The highly offensive word was aired about about 8:30 p.m. on a Sunday night to ABC”s audience of 2.9 million viewers (nearly 6 million people were watching rain delay coverage of a NASCAR race at the same time).

The group accurately points out that the show was on tape delay, which means ABC had every opportunity to edit out the word before airing. Maybe the ABC guy said to himself “You know, this song is 27 years old, radio regularly leaves the “fuck” line in it, so don”t worry about taking it out.”

Little did he realize the wrath of the morally superior he was inviting. Oh my God, some child out there might actually hear the word “fuck” on television.

As everybody knows, “fuck” is a gateway word often leading those who hear and repeat it down the path of much harder and more dangerous phrases such as “motherfucker” and “well, fuck my ass with a pine cone.”
