George Carlin was onto something.

Okay, so maybe those aren’t the best seven words the English language can come up with, but it’s funny, and that was part of the reason I wanted to share it.  To be serious, I think if I had to sum up or whittle down the English language into only seven words, I don’t know how successful at it I’d be.  I mean, we have more than seven words just to describe fatigue.  Trying to come up with a list that comprises all the words we’d need to communicate effectively either with one another or other people who don’t speak English, I think is almost impossible.

    I love George, he was so brilliant! Have you ever checked our Bill Hicks?

      I’ve listened to a bit of his material on YouTube, yeah. He had one bit in particular about Rush Limbaugh I won’t post on my blog, not because I find it in poor taste, but because it’s even more filthy than Carlin’s Seven Dirty Words sketch. LOL

    I have few regrets – one is not going to see him perform in person when I had the chance.

      I never got to see him live either, but I would have loved to. I’m infinitely jealous of anyone who had the opportunity and took it.
