In honor of the 56th anniversary of Roth v. United States*, I thought I’d share a classic George Carlin rant on obscenity and its place in the media.

While the curse words are clearly the funniest part, Carlin has a fantastic way with words. Listen to his delivery of “Pneumonia…” or the way he says, “No one’s ever gone to jail for screaming ‘topography.'”


*For the non-lawyers reading this, take a click over to the wikipedia article. Roth’s an interesting case to read.
