KUNT Weather: Moist & Clammy Today

THE call letters KUNT have landed at a yet-unbuilt low-power digital television station in Wailuku, Maui.

Alarmingly similar to a word the dictionary says is obscene, the call letters were among a 15-page list of new call letters issued by the Federal Communications Commission and released this week.

The same station owner also received KWTF for a station in Arizona.

From Skokie, Ill., comes a sincere apology “to anyone that was offended,” said Kevin Bae, vice president of KM Communications Inc., who requested and received KUNT and KWTF. It is “extremely embarrassing for me and my company and we will file to change those call letters immediately.”

Can somebody explain to me why the call letters KUNT are embarrassing?  It’s “KUNT” not “CUNT”.  Any similarity is implied by the mind of the person reading it. 

This is something I will never understand.  We (that’s a collective “we” as in society) are responsible for the dirty, sinful thoughts that something as harmless as the letters “KUNT” strung together spur in someone else’s mind.  Where did we sign up for that charge?  However it came upon us, I would like to be excused.  Thank you.
