Ch.4 on Profanity

At a time when the FCC is working itself into a lather over the notion that the "f-word" might be spoken on the air, it's good to be reminded that not all countries share our obsession with George Carlin's famous list of words. The UK's Channel 4 crafted an especially an artful (and hysterically funny) reminder -- a channel ID spot that includes many of your favorite American TV stars saying what can't be said in the land of the First Amendment.

Gives us another reason to be thankful that free speech on the Internet is not subject to FCC regulation.
