Jump to navigation. I'm going to start this post by admitting that, most mornings, I wake up and immediately turn on the Today show. Partly it's a kind of alarm supplement, to ensure that I don't fall back asleep.
You can find it in the works of Chaucer, Burns, Shakespeare and Beckett. For fans of the profane, December 6th marked something of a pyrrhic victory.

This morning, the ever-unpredictable Jane Fonda goosed sleepy-eyed "Today" show audiences with her oh-so-casual dropping of the word "cunt. The "Today" show was quick to apologize for the remark. Apparently, Fonda thought she was on "The Colbert Report" again.
