I think the word 'bloody' was broadcast though I could be wrong. I think the word 'bitch' was. I put 'bloody' in both my attempts at sketches this week. Probably should not have but it seemed to fit the rhythm and context. I guess if they do not want to use a swear word they can take it out or replace it, if they like the sketch.
Also think I have heard 'shit' broadcast. I don't think they will do anything stronger than these and I guess they won't litter the show with such words. I guess it is all about context and humour.

@ Rood Eye I wouldn't worry about the whole one-liner thing, it's a bit of a misnomer.
Hardly any of the jokes are proper textbook one-liners and that's because they are 'breaking news', so have to be written in such a style i.e...the story followed by the punchline (as highlighted by TrashBat). The GWBW and Newsjackpedia are obviously slightly different and provide a platform for a different type of humour and therefore open things up a bit for different types of thinking.
If they really really really love your joke, the invention is all there but it's a bit wonky, they'll tweak it. I think that's fair to say.
Also, it's highly likely that the joke you think is your bestest bestest bestest ever...won't be the one they pick.
Fair comment (I'll put this to the house)?
Will let you know if I ever get one on Danno!
