Having a street named after you is usually an honor reserved for heroes. It’s only fitting that the late George Carlin, one of the greatest champions of comedy and free speech, gets a block of his own. His fans are petitioning to rename a Harlem street after the consummate funnyman, specifically West 121st, between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway, where he grew up and went to grade school.
We love the idea of paying homage to him, but a “George Carlin Street” just doesn’t seem right.
Here’s a few alternates that he’d definitely prefer:
- Shit Street
- Piss Street
- Fuck Street
- Cunt Street
- Cocksucker Street
- Motherfucker Street
- Tits Lane
Tits Lane has a nice ring to it.
