George Carlin, RIP

It is a fitting tribute that the ABC News website ran an article called "Do Carlin's 'Seven Dirty Words' Still Shock?" -- and more fitting still that they wouldn't print any of the words in question.  Because you never see words like that on, y'know, the Internet.

The dinosuars will go on censoring themselves long after the giant asteroid smashes into the planet and obliterates them.  Carlin would not have been surprised.

We were a little surprised, though, when Keith Olbermann -- our latest guilty pleasure -- mentioned something we did not know.  The original routine began with a bit about a guy whose phone is tapped by the FBI.  He knows this, so every time it rings, he picks up and says "Fuck Hoover."  

So, in honor of George Carlin, we at the Egg intend to spend the day answering our phone "Screw Cheney."
