That fighter pilot at 12 seconds doesn't sound like he's saying Son of a bitch, he sounds like he's saying Son of a Bosh.
Which makes sense, as the Brits called the Germans The Bosh during the wars. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=The+Bosh
"Surprising that the first use of 'fuck' in film was from a cartoon."
Yes, that surprised me too.
and that a cartoon (southpark) maxed it out!!
speaking of matt and trey, i just saw the musical, the book of mormon, and it was hilarious, as was the use of profanity.
Both South Park and Book of Mormon demonstrate that colorful profanity can be very entertaining.
