A world of difference: Brits make fun of FCC/American Puritanism.

Here’s a link to a commercial being broadcast by Channel 4 in the U.K. – the participants, many of whom are famous, are asked to say their favorite cuss words on camera (it says something that this is simply unimaginable in the U.S.). It’s bloody good fun!

Note: this commercial is likely to land you in hot water if your workplace is corporate or uptight.

I heard about this on Dave Farber’s Interesting People mailing list. This, along with Declan McCullagh’s Politech mailing list (see below), qualifies as the two most essential bits of reading available anywhere.
