Added DiffLines:

* While german laws aren't even half as strict as the FCC, certain musicians can't get their songs on the radio without heavy censoring. While some musicians played with that by choosing their own Bleep sounds, others go the full way and simply accept that they're not gonna get on the radio. The worst songs of that caliber sometimes get mentioned on the channels aimed at younger audiences, with a censored excerpt playing to show just ''how'' bad it is ("Pussy" by ''Music/{{Rammstein}} and some songs by rappers such as Sido or Bushido ended up in such displays).

* '''[[CountryMatters Cunt]]''' - The only one of the seven which may be considered more offensive now than when Carlin did the original routine. Not only forbidden in American network television, but in almost all conversation. Considered extremely vulgar and sexist in America, even though it is used more as a unisex term of offense outside of the USA and Canada.[[note]]It does not matter how many times you say 'but I didn't mean it that way' if you are not from the USA or Canada. If you use that word and a woman is around, she will probably flinch--and potentially slap you. Nobody will blame her. ''That'' is how offensive the word is.[[/note]]

* The song "Do It Like A Dude" by Jessie Jay has been played on public radio. The words "motherfucker" (in each bridge) and "crotch" (twice each chorus) as well as a bunch of other sex-rated words have to be blanked, but Jessie Jay is popular enough that stations will play this crippled version anyway.

* Whilst it is probably not a direct reference there is a [[TheTwoRonnies Two Ronnies]] sketch about a swear jar in a pub to raise money for the church idea. All of the swearing is censored by beeps, klaxons and so on (with each clearly meant to be a certain word, a whooping noise being much worse than the others and worth £1 rather than 20p.)

* Amazingly, ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' managed to get away with saying "pissed" multiple times, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar despite being TV-PG]] on primetime Creator/CartoonNetwork. They eventually caught on and censored it.

On his seminal comedy album ''Class Clown'', the late great Creator/GeorgeCarlin encapsulated the bizarre censorship standards of US network television. Rife with violence, sexual situations, and other unpleasantness that would not be broadcast in most countries, US broadcasters avoided showing mundanities like toilets, pregnancy, and two-person beds until the 1960s or even later. Carlin's little list caused a furor from MoralGuardians that forebade the list from being broadcast. When the legal dust settled, the United States Supreme Court ruled that the Seven Dirty Words might be acceptable for broadcast under certain circumstances, and that the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Communications_Commission FCC]] had the right to restrict broadcast content at times when children might be exposed to it. But they weren't exactly specific about any of it.

** Leads to a case of CriticalResearchFailure though, as if one substitutes the actual words in for the numbers, Eric seems to be misremembering them. He gets some right ("You think your one don't stink, well three-off"), but other times:
-->"You are one sixing, sevening monkey-fiver." (translatiion: "You are one motherfucking, titsing monkey-cocksucker.")

*** Special mention, however, goes to what Eric says after the above trick goes into place (said to Donna): "Now, let's go home and five all night."[[note]]Translation: "Now, let's go home and cocksuck all night."[[/note]] Either Eric meant "three" all night, or he was looking for a little tongue action.
