    One of the more famous jokes ever told, and without a doubt the most graphic.

    Bob Saget
    Gilbert Gottfried

    Other submissions also welcome.

    "Joe Franklin raped me."

    Never been a fan of Silvermans.
    I know people who absolutely worship the ground she walks on.
    Just not for me.

    Gilbert breaking it out after a failed 9/11 joke is part of its charm.

    I'd have to rewatch the movie. (Funny thing is, it's right next to The Aristocats on the shelf.) As Penn Jillette noted, it's a nice bit of word jazz.

    It seems like Gottfried was the best able to deliver it well. There were some surprising performances.

    @Chef2, I'm not a fan of her standup, but I adored I Love America.

    People talking about comedians having filters. Some comedians won't do such and such or this and that.
    Gottfried is someone that the filter doesn't exist.
    With him, there is nothing that is off limits.

    Bob Newhart (Not sure he ever did it, but if he did - maybe with his phone bit) I'm sure it would have killed.

    For whatever reason, this movie is almost impossible to find to stream.

    I would concur with Gottfried.

    My memory of the movie—which I saw ages ago, so I may be off— is that George Carlin told the best version. While others piled one outrageous act upon another, he took one outrageous act and described it in meticulous detail.

    In fairness, he was one of the few who seemed to have been given an opportunity to prepare a version for film. Others seemed to have been caught backstage at a show and asked to do it off the top of their head.
