Fun with the FCC

After noting Janet Jackson's "cork soaker" skit below and getting a comment speaking of "fig pluckers" I thought it's time to collect a list of phrases to annoy the FCC. (what do you call someone who works for the FCC? A FCCer? How do you pronounce it?)

Mortar forkers? Them other truckers? (as heard in "Speedball Tucker" by Jim Croce).

Somehow the word "funk" winds up mispronounced a lot. Wild Cherry's "Play that Funky Music" (wma) and Extreme's "Get the Funk Out" are two examples that come to mind.

Then there's Bob and Tom's Dickens Cider.

This wouldn't be complete without Howard Stern's "Sons of the Beach", an even dumber ripoff of "Baywatch".

You can do better - let's hear it!
