Cursing! Tiger Woods Profanity on TV!

Tiger Woods has a filthy mouth!

While watching the US Open it occurred to me that Tiger Woods does not realize that folks can read his lips and clearly see him mouth profanities on national TV.

Anyone who has watched sports in a noisy bar knows how to read lips, and Tiger need to realize that folks can “see” his cussing!

I expect to see Tiger mouthing a lot of profanity this weekend, as Oakmont is a legendary torturous course with super-narrow fairways, foot-deep grass roughs, and lightening-fast greens. Dig their famous “Church Pew” bunker:

Watching Tiger cuss comes on the heels of the new ruling by Uncle Charley (The FCC) that accidental profanity can be forgiven:

“In a 2-1 decision, the court overturned an indecency ruling against the Fox TV network, saying the FCC went too far citing separate incidents in 2002 and 2003 after performers Cher and Nicole Richie used expletives during live TV broadcasts of the Billboard Music Awards.

The court found that sanctioning “fleeting expletives” in live broadcasts is “arbitrary and capricious.”

Evidently, just as “excited utterances” have special treatment in the law, excited utterances can now be forgiven by the FCC.
