George Carlin Has Died

In honor of George Carlin, I will say this;

Piss, Shit, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker, and Tits!

Those are the seven dirty words you are never allowed to say on TV or radio according to FCC regulations. There are many other words, and phrases which are frowned upon, but they are judged according to context.

George Carlin highlighted the surreal quality of our Free Speech laws in his relentlessly sarcastic and joyous comedy routines. He was arrested for using these words in a comedy routine back in 1972. However, the case was dismissed by the Judge citing free speech laws.

In some ways, George Carlin is the founder of Infidel Bloggers Alliance, although, I doubt he would have enjoyed taking credit for us.

He would have had many wonderfully sarcastic things to say about us. The man was truly an inspiration.

Now we will never know if, could we have locked George in a room with Ahmadinejad, George could have managed to make his head explode.

although I enjoyed quite a bit of his humor, one sometimes wonders to what degree his material was sarcasm

There was a quote in the AP article on Carlin's death which said something like, "I don't believe in God, I don't believe in America, I don't believe in any of that man-made crap."

That's a loose quoatation, but yeah, I don't think he felt the same way about America that we do.
