Jacksonville – A coalition of atheist and satanic-worship organizations today deluged the Federal Communications Commission with complaints about yesterday’s Super Bowl halftime show.

Said a spokesman for the coalition, “We are completely shocked and outraged that our young people would be subjected to a display of such wholesome and non-sexual entertainment during a major sporting event such as this one. Where were the crotch-grabbing, nipple-flashing and sexual content we've come to expect?”

The complaints come in start contrast to last year’s uproar by religious groups, who protested singer Janet Jackson’s split-second breast flashing.

Responded outgoing FCC Chairman Michael Powell, “I guess you can’t please everyone. Maybe I'll call a news conference and drop my pants to make up for it.”
