BREAKING 6-23-08 Comedic Icon George Carlin Dies at 71; Carlin was Shreveport DJ While in A.F.
Most widely known for his "Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television" Carlin was the gadfly who kept the country entertained with his, no-holds-barred, sense of humor.
The AP story reports the counterculture hero's jokes also targeted things such as misplaced shame, religious hypocrisy and linguistic quirks — why, he once asked, do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?
In fact, as a footnote, while a young 19 year-old stationed at Barksdale Air Force Base, Carlin was also employed at KJOE Radio in Shreveport, Louisiana. The LPB website reports that Carlin was one of the first to play Elvis Presley's record "All Shook Up," thereby making the national news in 1956.
At a time when profanity was winked-at "on-the-air" Carlin made a career out of the mockery of our society's mores and the television medium, in particular, when it came to those "seven deadly words."
As CNN reported, Carlin was probably best known for a routine that began, "I was thinking about the curse words and the swear words, the cuss words and the words that you can't say." It was a monologue, known as "Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television," that got Carlin arrested and eventually led to the U.S. Supreme Court.
In November, Carlin was slated to receive the 2008 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, given by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
