Nipplegate Deja Vu On The Olympics Ice

Figure skating is more like ballet or dance on an icy stage
A French pair now in second place from Janet Jackson took a page
Not in terms of gyrating and jumping like a bunch of hip hop clowns
Their routine set to “Shape of You” with an undone clasp and costume over her breast coming down
 During the halftime show of Super Bowl XXXVIII
On stage singing and dancing Jackson and Justin Timberlake
At the end of the routine in what would become Nipplegate
For the millions of men watching a moment to really elate
Her breast was exposed for millions to briefly glance
Both claimed equipment malfunction but the FCC was askance
CBS was hit by the FCC with a fine of $500k
Appellate court reversed and the fine went away
Some claimed it was a publicity stunt
Jackson became the most clicked on person by those on an internet hunt
MTV which produced the show was banned from any halftime shows in the future
Jawed Karim was inspired to co-found YouTube and into a $1.65 billion sale to Google nurture
Nipplegate for the French skaters happened at the beginning of their dance
Clasp came undone, her breast exposed providing more than a half second glance
NBC to its credit when her breast exposed to the audience dangle
Quickly shifted to a view of wider angle
The French pair skated on to finish their dance routine
One of the more interesting skating performances to have been seen
The French pair is in second place less than two points back
Fans wonder were they penalized or rewarded for a covered breast she lacked?
