In 1970, Country Joe MacDonald was convicted of public obscenity for leading the audience at a Worcester (WUHʹ-stehr), Massachusetts, concert in his “fish” cheer…which spells out the so-called “f” word that has to be bleeped out when broadcasting on the radio.

In 1978, “Saturday Night Live”. This “commercial” for Royal Deluxe II is a priceless parody of the 1978 Mercury Grand Marquis ads featuring a diamond cutter, using sharp precision tools, shaping a gem in the backseat of the smooth-riding luxury sedan as it maneuvers sharp hills and hairpin turns. In SNLʹs outlandish version, a rabbi performs a backseat circumcision on an eight-day-old boy to illustrate the stability of the Royal Deluxeʹs power disk brakes and rack-and-pinion steering. Dan Aykroyd, the deadpan narrator, describes the rabbiʹs 40-mile-an-hour odyssey from Temple Beth Shalom in Little Neck, New York, as the carʹs grinning driver (Garrett Morris) negotiates rough roads, bumpy potholes and precarious construction cones. When the ride finally comes to an end and the rabbi returns the baby, who has only yelped once, to his adoring parents, he echoes the tag line of the Mercury commercial, solemnly declaring both the ride and the religious ritual just “poi-fect.”
