GEORGE CARLIN on the dangers of euphemisms
Imprecise language is misleading and our job as poets and writers is to tell it like it is. Here, George Carlin (1937-2008), American counter-culture stand-up comedian, social critic, philosopher, satirist, actor and writer, shows us just how unjust, confusing – and often just plain silly – euphemism is.
VIEWER ALERT: Carlin’s vocabulary will offend some people.
