Seven Dirty Words

The Senate has decided to offer a cap on indecency fines of $3 million dollars a day per station. Each instance of indecency can ring up an individual station a $500,000 fine, but if you broadcast all seven of the forbidden dirty words (made famous by George Carlin) you get the seventh free.

To put the new indecency fines in context, were the Opie and Anthony "Sex For Sam" incident to occur today, the fine would be $39 million dollars as opposed to the $357,500 previously assessed.
