I said "pee" on live TV

In my six years of radio and television work, I've never cursed or had an offensive slip of the tongue on the air.

That ended on live television tonight.

A jury convicted the county urine salesman of illegally selling his own pee-pee. Six months in jail, a $10,000 fine, five years probabtion during which time he's not allowed to sell his urine anywhere in the world. If he violates his probation, he goes to jail for prison years.

In a minor televsion coup, I snagged the salesman for a live interview shortly after he bonded out of jail (for $30,000, he stays out of jail pending an appeal).

I asked him what he was going to do now. He said, he guessed he "coudn't pee for the next six years."

What a silly thing to say, said the little man in my head (also known as my better journalistic judgement). You better call him on that! You're on live TV. Call him on it.

So, I say..."Well, you can't pee and then sell it."

I said "pee" on live TV.

It's not a bad word...but I want to kick the little man in my head. He could've fed me the word "urinate."

Huh-huh...pee.
