George Carlin was wrong

Proof that George Carlin was wrong:

I'm sure by now you've all seen the TV commercial featuring the exchange from the second half of this brief clip. (I couldn't find a video of the actual commercial.) It's entirely possible Carlin saw that spot. I wonder... do you think Carlin was proud that before he died, the most offensive of his "Seven Words" was used not once, not twice, but three times in a ubiquitous national television ad with which apparently nobody in Standards & Practices at any network in America had any problem? Or would he, like the rest of us, instead feel an overwhelming, blinding hatred for Mike Myers and this stupid, stupid, stupid movie?

My guess: a little of both.

P.S. It's not even an original line. It's stolen from Caroline Rhea.
