In a twist that no one could have predicted, William Shatner thinks that swearing is no big deal. The Shats is currently set to star in CBS’s adaptation of the twitter feed Shit My Dad Says, but the show has been plagued by network hand-wringing about what exactly its title should be. Stuff My Dad Says? $#*! My Dad Says? Bleep My Dad Says? Americans have values, after all! After much spirited debate, the network has settled on a title, and Shatner is none too pleased.
The show will be called Bleep My Dad Says, and Shatner’s already commented on the new title. “You know what I wish? I wish they’d call it ‘Shit,'” he said. “The word shit is all around us. It isn’t a terrible term. Why are we pussy-footing?” Indeed, why are we pussy-footing? We are all surrounded by the word shit all the time, everywhere we go! Wake up CBS executives, the word shit is probably already in your meeting about the word shit!
