Lawmakers are p***ed off

This proposed House bill known as the "Clean Airways Act," dealing with broadcast decency standards, would define eight words as being 'profane,' along with "other grammatical forms of such words and phrases (including verb, adjective, gerund, participle, and infinitive forms)." I doubt it will pass, but since the Janet Jackson incident it's been picking up sponsors. (Via Stuart at the Volokh Conspiracy).

I was quite surprised to see that the word "piss" made the list. I think that's the only one of the profane words that is used in the Bible.
