Is this the funniest Inauguration moment, as popular culture sensibilities clash with the political considerations at a youth concert?
"[The event] took an unexpected turn when Fuel singer Brett Scallions shouted an obscenity during his band's set.Scallions, of course, meant the ubiquitous "F word", but, sadly, to many others in the entertainment world that Scallions comes from, "f---ing" would be the only acceptable part of that sentence.
" 'Welcome to the greatest f---ing country in the world!' Scallions yelled at the youth-oriented show in the D. C. Armory... Scallions then sheepishly added, 'Oops. I wasn't supposed to say that'."
