Shaquille O'Neal has a few things to learn about this whole TV thing. One of the most important things? Learning what you can, and more importantly, cannot say on TV.

Shaq made that mistake on Thursday night while appearing on TNT's Inside the NBA, when he uttered a four-letter word that begins with S as the show went to break.

"You know who I blame for that s---?" he asked as the show went into its commercial break transition.

As soon as The Big Pottymouth lets the s-bomb fly, you can hear show host Ernie Johnson respond with a surprised "Oh!"

You can see the video here, but you know, there's swearing. So you've been warned.

Anyway, Johnson apparently thought Shaq needed to be taught a lesson. Later in the show, Johnson did what your mom always threatened to do, but usually didn't carry out -- he rinsed Shaq's mouth out with soap.

OK, so he didn't actually do that (liquid soap would have been much easier to do so), but Johnson did his best to feed Shaq a bar of soap. 

Mmm, soap...

  • The only better word in the English language than the S-bomb is the F-bomb, eh?
  • This is just typical of what sports stars are like. Most are just thugs or look like ones. Same as the rap people. No talent and just enforcing the whole black culture as plain dumb/stupid/no class. The worse part is many people hold them up as idols and really think all of what they have to say is so important.
  • Volkswagen,

    Thank you so much for your comments. You have just reinforced my impression of an ignorant bigoted moron.

    By the way, this part of the black culture has an MBA and is a Certified Public Accountant.

    How's your trailer park?
  • Typical of sports stars. Most are just thugs, act like ones and look like one. Sorry example of Blacks in America. All part of the rap culture. What do most black kids have to look up to? Pants hanging below their waists, hats on backwards, English that cannot be understood, lyrics about killing people, treating women like garbage, etc. etc. No wonder their neighborhoods are full of crime etc. Worse is that many whites follow this culture too.
