George Carlin, R.I.P

The late comedian George Carlin's famous filthy words are part of the appendix to the Supreme Court case FCC v. Pacifica Foundation, a decision which turns 30 on July 3.

You may not be able to say those words over the airwaves, but you sure can link to them.

They're part of a government document, after all.

Carlin last performed locally at the Ulster Performing Arts Center in Kingston in March.

Visit to read his expanded version of the seven dirty words.

They are now 2,443.

Carlin once said:

"I dread the deaths of certain super-celebrities. Not because I care about them, but because of all the stuff I have to endure on television when one of them dies. ..."

Obviously, he didn't said "stuff."
