Those Seven Words

Okay, have you Googled George Carlin for the 7 words? I remembered five of them and half of a sixth. Now I know them all -- for all the good it does me.

I read an article this morning about a band whose name had one of "those" words in it and in reviews, unless they were online reviews, the name of the band couldn't be printed. The policy of the New York Times is not to print the word "fuck" unless they are quoting an American president or someone similar. Doesn't seem too smart for the band.

I've been surprised so many times by some of the language on prime time sit-com TV. Not the seven words, but still words that I wouldn't want to hear my grandson using. What are they thinking?
