On this day in 1978.....

Post by khintx on Sat Jul 03, 2010 4:37 pm

July 3, 1978: US Supreme Court rules in favor of FCC's reprimand against a radio station that aired George Carlin's infamous "7 Words You Can't Say on Television". Here's audio of that revolutionary skit (profanity x 7)

I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately.

I saw this Carlin show on HBO. It was the first 'bad' thing I had ever seen on TV. My kids were watching it with me, Karen was 17, and Kelli was 16.

I don't think they ever stopped laughing.
