It’s been 10 years since Janet Jackson’s infamous “wardrobe malfunction”during the Super Bowl in front of millions of CBS viewers, yet anyone who owned a television in 2004 can remember the night that a nipple (half) shownon television for 9/16ths of a second made the United States go batsh*t crazy.
