Thank you charming driver! I was trying to come up with that this morning and blanked out on a few words.- Pegkitty
Well-said! You made my day! *wipes iced tea off monitor and heads to youtube to watch the original*
He will be missed.
You guys are so young. I'm so old, I remember when his pony tail was new -- his "hippy-dippy weatherman" routine. Weather report started, "Hey, how are ya? Que whatcha-call-yer pasa?" What a guy. What a loss.
George Carlin was a Great Comic.. I had the pleasure of seeing him in my hometown and he did not disappoint..he will be missed.. Who will say all these words in one sentace now??
I said the same thing when I heard the news on NPR as I was driving to work...then realized my window was open!
I wonder how many bloggers included that final tribute to Carlin. I did. You did. So far I've found one other that did. I'm sure there are hundreds posting the 7 words you can't say on TV.I saw Carlin in concert a year ago. It was ridiculously expensive but I'm very glad now that I did.
In defense of those who needed the explanation, some of us have never lived through a time when there actually WERE words you couldn't say on TV.
My mom owned "Class Clown" on vinyl. The day I discovered that, our relationship was permanently improved.Godspeed, George.
Haven't heard that routine in years, but it comes back as easily as does a nursery rhyme: "Tits? Tits shouldn't even be on the list. It's a happy word...Sounds like a snack...Yeah, I know...it is. Cheese Tits. Tater Tits...Or a name. Toots, meet Tits. Tits, Toots..." What a funny, funny man he was.
I said to my boyfriend, grumpy old comedians aren't supposed to die. I don't know. I just think funny people in general should be immune from mortality.Melody
My favorites are motherfucker, twat, pussy, cunt, cocksucker, and fuck. He was an amazing man and will be missed. Aren't words fun?
TV was censored right from the start.When I Love Lucy was on, and Lucy got preggers, the network would not allow the actors to refer to her as "pregnant". She had to say that she was "expecting", even though a rabbi, priest and minister approved the word "pregnant." This was in Desi Sr.'s autobiography.
The phrase that comes to my mind is one that I learned from one of my students, many years ago."Mother-fuckin'-son-ofa-god-damned-bitch!"Out of the mouths of babes.Peace,~j
