William Shatner wants you to know he swears in front of children

Wild Bill's at it again (Shatner: Meredith P.) 

Maybe a bit bitter about being passed over for a stint as the new governor general, William Shatner is waging war on political correctness. The fun-hating Parents Television Council (PTC), with no mildly racy “Gossip Girl” ads to provoke its outrage over the summer, is redirecting its boycott-urging energy to the title of Shatner’s new CBS sitcom, $#*! My Dad Says—and Bill is having none of it, reports the Sun.

“The word s**t is around us,” he announces. “It isn’t a terrible term. It’s a natural function. Why are we pussyfooting?” Shatner claims he’s never had any qualms about using the dreaded word around his kids and grandkids, and that he far prefers it to such baby talk as “Boopy-doo-doo, you’ve got to make poo-poo… Make poo-poo in the toilet.” No arguments here. The only thing worse than picturing him cooing the above is the kidney stone he auctioned off.
