FCC Commissioner-for-a-Day

Much has been written post-wardrobe incident on the way that the FCC interprets and applies its rules about indecency.

Is swearing in a foreign language okay? How about using slang "code words" for certain body parts or sex acts? Will the FCC give you a break for the inadvertant slip of the tongue -- you know, those tricky words and phrases with a double entendre/meaning, one of which is "clean"?
