R.I.P. George Carlin

George Carlin has died from heart failure in Los Angeles aged 71.
His famous 'Seven words you can never say on TV' routine led to his arrest in 1972 for disturbing the peace after performing the show at Milwaukee. The same routine, which was played on a New York radio station, resulted in a Supreme Court ruling in 1978 upholding the governments authority to sanction stations for broadcasting offensive language.
And here it is -
Seven words you can never say on TV.
