Just read on the NY Times (thanks for the tip, Tim!) that Gordon Ramsay went before the Australian Senate today for excessive use of profanity on his television shows. Despite Catholic protests, they decided not to censor him or any other foul-mouthed television stars.
“In the absence of an overwhelming community consensus that particular words be banned altogether, the committee does not believe it is appropriate to make any recommendations with regard to imposing additional limits,” a report stated, according to The Associated Press.Suggestions by the committee included better programming and improved parental controls (Australia already has rules for "mature" programming, such as Gordon's shows, to be shown after 8:30pm).
If they only knew what a sweet lamb he is. I mean, look at that face!
