Shit, piss, cunt, fuck, cocksucker, motherfucker and tits. Those, my friends, are the Seven Dirty Words You Can’t Say on Television, as organized by the late, great George Carlin. I heard about his “terminal episode” last night after I got home from work. I cried a bit. Ever since my parents introduced me to his work with the incredible “Carlin at Carnegie,” I idolized him. It would be safe to say that George Carlin is the main reason I love words so much–especially the “dirty ones.”
I don’t know what to type. I just know that the world lost someone honest. He was a grand master of wordplay and observational comedy, and will be sorely missed. Joe bless you, George.
