Imprecision in language is often misleading and our job as poets and writers is to tell it like it is. Here, in his black humor way, George Carlin (1937-2008), American counter-culture stand-up comedian, social critic, philosopher, satirist, actor and writer/author, shows us just how unjust – and often just plain silly – the indiscriminate use of euphemism is.
VIEWER ALERT: Carlin often gets his point across by using vocabulary and gestures that are crude.
Thanks to Charlie and to Laurel for this.
