No-one dropped the f-bomb at the Supreme Court today.
That normally wouldn't be a surprise, but the argument in question was a high profile obscenity case.
Much to the disappointment of some court-watchers, the entire one-hour argument passed by without anyone uttering an expletive.
In FCC v. Fox, the broadcast networks are appealing a new Federal Communications Commission policy that would allow broadcasters to be punished for so-called "fleeting expletives," usually uttered by pop stars at awards shows.
In discussing in what context the words "fuck" or "shit" could be used on network TV, the justices and counsel referred to them simply as "the f-word" and "the s-word."
The late George Carlin, whose famous "Seven Dirty Words" routine led to the Supreme Court's most prominent ruling on the issue in FCC v. Pacifica, would no doubt be disappointed.
