Like the rest of the country, we were saddened to hear about the news of George Carlin’s passing, and felt that we should honor him in some way. We thought and thought, and then came upon an idea; why not research stock repositories for Carlin’s “seven words you can never say on television”? Researchers, you know you like to type outrageous words into the search field when you’re bored. This time we do it for you. To fairly represent the breadth of the industry, we searched both PhotoShelter and Getty.
The only rule: I had to choose an image from the first page of results. If you don’t trust my findings, search for yourself! Some results make sense, some clearly do not. Number 5 is just amazing.
Ok! Here we go:

Gay couple flirting while washing a car together.
