And in Other Cheeky News…

Barbie buttThe Federal Communications Commission wants to sue ABC for $1.4 million over a 2003 episode of “NYPD Blue” in which a chick’s ass is shown. Apparently an ass-shot violates some decency regulations for showing “sexual or excretory organs or activities”. ABC’s comeback? To revert to childhood playground “Is not/Is too” banter: The station claimed the ass isn’t a sexual organ.

Then, the FCC argued back: “Although ABC argues, without citing any authority, that the buttocks are not a sexual organ, we reject this argument, which runs counter to both case law and common sense.” Yeah, take that ABC!

If anyone wants to get technical, the ass actually isn’t a sexual organ; that is, you can’t use an ass to sexually reproduce. Plus, an “organ” is defined as “a fully differentiated structural and functional unit in an animal that is specialized for some particular function.” And contrary to popular belief, the buttocks themselves simply aren’t specialized like that. Point God. Now, about those pesky nudity laws…
