Mofo ex machina

By the way, the other day I caught the premiere episode of Penn & Teller: Bullshit on Showtime. P&T rip apart various scams and hoaxes in this show, and the first episode focused on “psychics” like John Edward, etc. It’s a great show, and if you get Showtime I highly recommend you check it out (Especially if you like Penn and Teller)

      I remembered that article (which is available over here, outside of Google, at (they lost

      At the beginning of the episode Penn said something to the effect of: “You will notice we are using an excessive amount of swearing in this show. This isn’t because we are on Showtime and trying to get ratings, but instead because you can get sued for slander if you call someone a fraud or a phony, but if you call them a motherfucker, they can’t touch you.”

      I got a chuckle out of that…
