    But you can say Merde (French for Shit)

    I find it interesting that the FCC won't allow the English word 'shit' but when Patrick Stewart as Capt. Jean Luc Picard in a moment of exasperation says "merde" in French it is OK, even with captioning.

    This was in the episode "Elementary, Dear Data," which aired on Dec. 3, 1988.

    Are you French? I didn't spell it, the ppl who made the subtitles did and Merde (pronouncedd Maird) is very similar to the Spanish mierda.

    Loved the South Park "Shit, Shitterdy, Shit, Shit, Shit "
    Like the continued Reference in Red Dwarf to "Smeg" or Battlestar Galactica of "Frack" - we all know, or can guess the meaning !?!
    ((Maybe it's just more "Poetic?)) :)
