So I was gonna make this junk about pop gossip to counterbalance amlmart's disturbingly highbrow topic, but trawling Gawker for material led me to this snippet which demands its own JD:
The Parents Television Council—the conservative busybodies who like to complain about all the good stuff on TV—has done a study of television curse words. Finally, we can know for sure which are the most popular swears!
The PTC, which is concerned about the use of naughty language on TV in the wake of a federal court ruling that the FCC has no authority to maintain an "indecency policy," watched the first two weeks of the fall television season on the five major networks and tallied up the curses they heard. What a weird way to spend your time! But so valuable for our ongoing quest to figure out what swears are popular.
The full data set is here, and obviously has naughty words in it, so shield your eyes. I was interested to see that they think "piss" is a swear word. Squeamish people are funny.
Also, it's good to have "insane" Kanye back instead of "emo" Kanye.

Maybe we can vanquish emo Brandon with a similarly strange in-flight performance?
