Fox News' Bob Beckel dropped an F-bomb on Thursday's "The Five," Or, he "sort of" did, in his own words.

Beckel's maybe-profanity came during a conversation about Muslim terrorists. He brought up his fellow Fox Newser Juan Williams, who was fired from NPR for saying that he feels uncomfortable when he sees people in "Muslim garb" on airplanes.

"I not only felt bad about it, I got off the (something) plane," he said. The (something) sounded like a cross between the f-word, "frickin" and a weird cough.

After the show returned from a commercial break, Beckel addressed his weird utterance.

"The producer tells me that I swore in the last session," he said. "I didn't--well, I sort of did. Anyway I apologize."
