I am watch a show on PBS – George Carlin being “honoured” at the Kennedy Center with the Mark Twain Prize. As I am watching this, they are showing a number of old clips, including the infamous “Seven words you can never say on television”.
Am I the only person who sees a great deal of irony in the fact that they can broadcast a show honouring a man like George Carlin, and bleep-out all of the “bad” words?
One thought on “Words you STILL cannot say on television”
What’s interesting is that you’re free to ALLUDE to those words. E.g. the fictional show they Produce on 30 Rock is called MILF Island. And SNAFU and FUBAR have been around for awhile.
