the world is a less funny place today after george carlin dies at age 71.
george was best known for the seven words you can`t say on television.
they are as follows; shit, piss, fuck, cunt, motherfucker, cocksucker, and tits.
so lets look closely at these words for a moment and see where the problem may lie.
the first two, shit and piss, are common bodily functions that, while mostly a private matter, are mostly innocuous, unless you have a personal problem with such functions that you may have acquired during your formative years. in which case you could be chronically religious, an accountant, or a member of a broadcast standards committee.
cunt, motherfucker and cocksucker are descriptive of processes of sexuality, and while the terms aren`t particularly elegant, they describe some of my favorite things. she has one, i am one, and i look forward to the act with a fondness that i have for little else.
finally, the word tits. come on people, we were all born to feed at the breast. to refer to them is a homage to nurture and sustenance. to image one is to be at once fed and stimulated.
i can`t think of a finer state to exist in.
thanks for the memories george.
rest in peace, you motherfucker.
