Carlin replied by inviting her, in two words, to perform a sexual act upon him.

Two words? "F--- me?" "F------ me?" How else could he convey such a desire with just two words? It would seem almost necessary for the second word to be "me," which means the first must be a command. Maybe "suck this?" It seems like adding a finger-point would be cheating the two word limit.

Those don't sound at all graceful.

I mean, 3 words is easy to understand, "[verb] my [noun];" the number of constructions are almost limitless. But two words? The man is a master wordsmith, but I don't see how he could have done it.

Having heard Carlin a lot recently, I imagine the two words were "BL!W ME". It's a very native New York figure of speech. Carlin is a walking contradiction, like many bright individuals: his comedy has been at one and the same time brilliant, cerebral, stupidly vulgar, and personally off-putting, as if he's just pushing the envelope either for its own sake, or just out of personal discomfort. Its the equivalent of Linda Ronstadt turning one of her recent stage shows into a commercial for Michael Moore. The audience came to hear and see one thing, and they're given something else. They have a right to walk out, or yell up at him, like a woman in the audience did. I noticed a sea-change in Carlin starting about ten years ago on one of his HBO specials--a willingness to go farther and farther into making an audience uncomfortable , testing their own flexibility, almost to see if he could get away with it,bend them to his will, and still keep them loyal to him. Unfortunately, nothing that ever came from these forays into Xtreme Comedy ever proved to be very funny.

The first word was probably "Blow".

As the libs told us though, that is not a sex act.
