FCC To Fine ABC $1.4 Million Over 5 Year Old Nude Buttocks Shot

The offending butt appeared on an NYPD Blue episode from 2003 in which a boy surprises a woman as she prepares to take a shower:

The scene depicted ”multiple, close-up views” of the woman’s ”nude buttocks” according to an agency order issued late Friday.

The agency said the show was indecent because ”it depicts sexual organs and excretory organs — specifically an adult woman’s buttocks.”

The agency rejected the network’s argument that ”the buttocks are not a sexual organ.”

Merriam Webster:


1: the back of a hip that forms one of the fleshy parts on which a person sits.
2: plural a: the seat of the body b: rump
Where are they getting that a butt is a sexual organ?
And why did it take the FCC 5 years to get offended by it.

Race Against Time

This is harrowing!

Two Detroit area women are abducted by a man who intends to rape them in his car. One of the women has the presence of mind to call 911 on her cellphone, and leave it on. Police are chilled to the bone when they hear what is going on. They lose the phone line. The woman calls back….again and again.

Watch the video to see how things end.

Bono Confesses Sins To “Father Al”

I like Bono.

I think he’s an honest broker with a good heart. So it pains me to see him riddled with guilt because of the the non-stop hectoring of the Goracle about climate change.

Bono, who has been sharing the stage with Gore at the annual gathering of bigwigs in the Swiss ski resort of Davos, had this to say about the extreme pressure he’s been feeling (while in Al Gore’s presence) to live the “green lifestyle”:

“He’s been round my house and it’s like… here’s the recycler Al, you know… I’ve got a posh car, but it runs on ethanol Al,” Bono said.

Acknowledging that a career in rock music was not always conducive to a green lifestyle, Bono compared a conversation with Gore to an act of religious contrition.

“It’s like being with an Irish priest. You start to confess your sins,” he said. “Father Al, I am not just a noise polluter, I am a noise-polluting, diesel-soaking, gulfstream-flying rock star.

“I’m going to kick the habit. I’m trying father Al, but oil has been very good for me — those convoys of articulated lorries, petrochemical products, hair gel.”

Michelle Malkin warned her readers to read Bono’s words on an empty stomach: “It will have the effect of Ipecac on you”.

Well, I didn’t think it was that bad….in fact, I think I detected a wee bit of snark in there. It almost sounded like he doesn’t take Gore all that seriously.

But I could be wrong.

At any rate, someone should tell Bono to simmer down.

“Father Al” flunked Divinity school.

Bono was in Davos to push his campaign for poverty alleviation, Gore *naturally* was there to push for the reduction of carbon emissions.
