George Carlin's 7 Dirty Words

As most already know, comedian George Carlin passed away today.

Carlin is perhaps best known for his routine "Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television." In the early '70s, the monologue aired on the radio. A complaint was made to the Federal Communications Commission, and the issue wound up in the courts. Eventually the Supreme Court, which ruled in favor of the FCC. Voilà! Indecency regulation was born.

While most news outlets have mentioned "Seven Words" in their stories about Carlin's life, no surprise, they haven't said what those words are. Thank god for blogs. Shocker: all of them have sexual connotations!

1) shit
2) piss
3) fuck
4) cunt
5) cocksucker
6) motherfucker
7) tits
