Thursday, February 11, 2016 – Lenny Bruce, George Carlin, Donald Trump and the Seven Dirty Words
In 1962 comedian Lenny Bruce was arrested for vulgarity for saying the “F word” and “tits” during his monolog. At the same show George Carlin was arrested for refusing to show his ID to police.
On May 27, 1972 George Carlin took the stage at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium to record his Class Clown album. This monolog would come to be known as the Seven Dirty Words that you cannot say on TV.
Today, Donald Trump has said at least two of them during his campaign. If you count the “P word” that makes eight.
Is this who the people of the United States really want to represent us worldwide? President Potty Mouth? This is your family values candidate?
Well, shit. FYI – that is one of the words you cannot say. Unless of course you have cable TV.
