The deeper truth 

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.

" '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'."
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.
