Humor without profanity. What a concept!

Somehow, though, George Carlin pulled it off. I guess the way to describe it is that he used profanity as punctuation, not a club to beat his audience over the head with. That, and he actually was in an interesting philosophical discussion at the same time.

His classic "7 words you can't say on television" is a bit outdated now. It's probably down to 2 or 3.....

In the interest of fairness, I should also mention Richard Pryor pulled it off well, too.

Richard Pryor was pretty funny--until that whole setting himself on fire thing.
When the kids were little they used to watch George Carlin a lot--he played Mr. Conductor on Shining Time Station (don't remember which was first on that role--him or Ringo Starr)

We had this jump rope jingle.
First you started out just swinging back and forth--no "overhead"

Blue Bells, Cockle Shells,
Eve-y Ivy, Overhead.

Johnny on the ocean,
Johnny on the sea,
Johnny broke a milk bottle
blamed it on me,

I told Ma
Ma told Pa
Johnny got a whipping
ha, ha, ha

There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission.

If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical.

We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity.

For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure.

You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to — The Outer Limits.
