There's some disagreement about whether actor and curse-word enthusiast Samuel L. Jackson might have broken "Saturday Night Live's" cardinal rule against swearing during this week's episode hosted by Martin Short. In a mock talk show segment, "What Up With That?" Jackson said something that sounded exactly like the F-word and he definitely said "bulls***" immediately afterward.
"Come on now. That costs money," the visibly startled Kenan Thompson joked.
Jackson is known for his creative reinterpretations of swear words on social media, later promising Twitter users that he only said "Fuh." But he did cop to the other verbal gaffe, blaming timing.
