Sign 'O The Times!

Well, you knew it would come to this:
Less Swearing on TV, Demands Former Sex Pistol

LONDON (Reuters) - "Wanna be an anarchist?"

At least one of the Sex Pistols, now middle-aged and a father of two, no longer does.

Former Pistols bassist Glen Matlock has called for swearing on British television to be curbed, nearly 30 years after the provocative punk rockers sent shock waves through Britain by using derivations of the dreaded "f"-word on live TV.

"It's pathetic when people swear for the sake of it," Matlock told a television show to be broadcast Sunday. "Something ought to be done about it."
Matlock wrote my all time favorite Sex Pistols' song, God Save the Queen:

God save the queen she ain’t no human being
There is no future in England’s dreaming

What the heck? They were right! Still, I suppose Sid Vicious is spinning in his grave, or hell, or Pittsburg, or wherever you go when you kick, to think that another fellow Sex Pistols bandmate, Johnny Rotten, is doing a series on Discovery about helping people really understand insects. I am not making this up. I wish I was.
