[Ads-l] motherfucking goes mainstream

This may have happened thirty years ago, but if so I wasn't told.

CNN has currently been promoting the heck out of a new special on the life
of well-beloved, classic novelist Jackie Collins. Like at virtually every
other commercial break.

The soundtrack behind the promo features a lady scream-singing "I'm the
MOTHERFUCKING BOSS!"

The "U" is electronically suppressed, though not so anyone is likely to
notice.  No bleep, just a half-millisecond of nearly undetectable silence.
