One of the main rules here at the Project is that contributors can't use anything more than a mild curse word in a title of a post. Today, even St. Peter looked up from the book and said, "Well, Goddamit. George Carlin? You shitty motherfucker, I never thought I'd see you standing at these damn gates."

One of my fave Saturday Night Live sketches occured back in the mid 70's when Richard Pryor was hosting it. They did a spoof of 'The Exorcist' with George Carlin doing the voice of the devil.

I still laugh to this day whenever I see it.

Another comic genius has left us.

I think I was in the audience on the first video, because it was in Phoenix at the Celebrity Theater and I seen him twice in Phoenix. I laughed my ass off once again watching the Seven Words routine you posted here. He ended with the line I have always remembered, "You can prick your finger, but you can't finger your prick." Thank you Bil. I have tears in my eyes. He will be missed.

How can I follow the two fair Monicas:

F.U.C.K. Fornication under consent of the King!

Hung outside the doorway of those who had been granted access. *grin*

Monicas you probably don't remember Red Skelton. Never uttered a swear word to get a laugh (and I am not above swearing) as he knew, and respected, that some in his audience were children, or sensitive.

His idea of edgy was doing a faux commercial for "Guzzlers Gin" which was HIGH larious. Now think about it, a whole group of people, Black, White, young, old, Democrats and Republicans sitting side by side in peace having a great time. I have to believe that we can build on that. Comedy that is only for segments of people mean the haters laugh less--which is not good for anyone.

Carlin was excellent and edgy, but even he toned down his act to get on television. My favorite of his was "Hippy Dippy Weatherman."

Robert: I have been told that if one consults the unabridged version of the Oxford English Dictionary, you will (1) risk getting a hernia, and (2) read that F.U.C.K. was branded into the wooden stocks above adulterers being publicly punished in puritan England and New England America. It supposedly stands for "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge" ...

... in other words, it is our verbal equivalent of "The Scarlet Letter" ...

... and nowadays, we might as well all tattoo it onto our foreheads, at least that will fuck up the plans for when the next GOP-appointed Attorney General wants to tattoo a national bar code there.

Had the FCC allowed him to, perhaps George Carlin would have told us that --- and his telling would have been good for bigger laughs. I will miss him.

I had heard that the word in question was created by Afrikaaners, as a combination of the Dutch "focken" (to plow), and the British military abbreviation of "for unlawful carnal knowledge" - which could mean anything from an affair with a fellow soldier, to a soldier getting a royal or officer's daughter drunk and having his way while on liberty.

Even though Carlin did not believe in religion, I have no doubt he's snorting lines off the bar in heaven with Richard Pryor and John Belushi. They've earned it. The funniest - and most thought-provoking- comics I've heard. May he rest in motherfucking peace!

I do not believe it is New World Alan. The other version I have been exposed to was a Latin phrase I do not recall which begins Fornication (or it's Latin root word), outside of marriage. By definition we are all fuckers at least a few times.

This one actually makes more sense to me considering the dirty minds in the catholic church. *grin*

Then they would take them out and throw them in the torture chambers and they would REALLY be fucked.
