Last night a friend of mine who is a Very Famous Christian Leader was asking me if I recalled how, back in the day, George Carlin had issued his instantly-famous list of Seven Words You Can’t Say on Television. (My friend's point wasn’t to make me type dirty to him; it was that lately he’s heard, like, five of those words on television.)

We were thinking that perhaps it’s time to update Carlin’s list. To that end, then, here is my personal vote for Seven (Other) Words No One Should Be Allowed to Say On Television:

Urantia
midget
bong
diarrhea
matriculating
sudsy
Gary Coleman
