"Shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, and tits."

Yeah, I know; that's not as innocuous a list as "nitwit, blubber, oddment, and tweak," but George Carlin died, and he wouldn't have appreciated a tactful, self-censored subject-line to mark the occasion.

Christopher Robin was my first crush, but George Carlin was my first linguistic hero. ♥

I first heard Carlin's "Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television" routine by sneaking a listen to it on the lowest volume setting of my parents' stereo system, my ear pressed deeply into the speaker so that I could hear the record. (Ultimately, my brother was punished for messing up the speaker, which pleased me. *cackles*) In any case, I think that some of you will appreciate the routine, too. Obviously, it's NWS. Here's a transcript, and here's the audio (which auto-plays).

Wherever you are, George, I hope you're raising hell.
