RIP George Carlin

I believe it was also Henry Morgan who did the famous forecast, "High
winds, followed by high skirts, follwed by me." This was in the days
of the much more famous Marilyn Monroe photo. Today, Morgan's quip
would probably be decried as sexist and certainly politically
incorrect. In the '50s, when he said it, I think it was just
considered droll.

I'm reminded of another great comedian noted for his irreverence:
Henry Morgan.
He too made fun of the presentation of the weather in media with this
"Today MUGGY, followed bt TUEGGY, WEGGY and THURGY".
I still get laughs when I use this line (without attribution)
