George Carlin is probably most famous for his “Seven Words You Can never Say On Television” routine from the early 70’s. (Please click here to see more about that.) He’s been a counterculture, telling-it-like-it-is icon for a long time since, winning four Grammies and being nominated for many other awards along the way, mostly recently for the Mark Twain award for American humor, announced just last week.
I’ve listened to a lot of George Carlin, but what stuck was a routine about words you never hear together like: “Hand me that piano!” or “please saw my legs off!” Tell us your favorite Carlin work in the comments.
Shit, George, we’re going to miss you.
