Happy Birthday George Carlin, here’s George Carlin!

The Seven Words (WARNING: it’s rude)

It’s a superbly strong day for birthdays, with Burt Bacharach, Steve Winwood, Emilio Estevez, Tony Hawk and Stephen Baldwin all due some sloppy kisses from the wife. Great men, but none quite as great as George Carlin, recently voted our number one George. He was a massively popular US comedian, but was barely known in the UK. Annoyingly he died last year, else he’d be turning a very delicious 71 today. We thought we’d get him a gift anyway, so we went for a pizza to talk about things, and it boiled down to a toss up between a real pig’s snout that looks a bit like an American plug socket if you balance it against the wall in the corner of the room, or a clip of his very own stand up routine. Yes, we’d used it before, bit it’s so good that we thought we’d show it again. Happy Birthday George!
