Tag: "George Carlin"
BRADENTON, Fla. — As a little kid, if I said anything considered worse than “heck” or “darn” my mother would threaten to wash out my mouth with laundry soap. And, there was even a standard in the media set by the Federal Communications Commission about a half-century ago that prompted a comedian named George Carlin to include into one of his stand-up routines that there were seven words you couldn’t say on the radio. If you’re curious, you can look them up via Google. But in today’s world, some of what was once called “foul language” appears to have become the norm in the broadcast community. I regularly hear these and worse from show hosts, daily. I even hear some in produced commercials.
