The Better Off Ted swearathon

Gentle ABC workplace comedy Better Off Ted recently had an episode in which an office memo inadvertently told everyone to insult one another. Being a primetime network show, the fruity language was relatively tame.

Fortunately, during recording, the cast were allowed to go wild and here are the out-takes to prove that yes, swearing is big, fun and clever. There’s some good ‘uns in there. Enjoy (although probably not with the sound up if you’re at work)!
