NSFW: Could Sarah Silverman’s Pilot Mean The Joke’s On NBC?

Alt-comedy hero Sarah Silverman just signed a major pilot deal with NBC, after an intense bidding war between several networks. This foul-mouthed cutie has always played her innocent dirtiness for laughs, and it’s made her a fixture of late-late-late night talk shows and basic cable (The Sarah Silverman Program ran on Comedy Central for three seasons). But when did Silverman become safe for primetime network TV?

Silverman chooses some of the most sensitive topics possible, and has come under fire for joking about everything from sex to the Holocaust, and especially for her racially-themed jokes. She has defended herself, saying she tells jokes about racism to break down negative attitudes, not spread them. But sometimes, audiences don’t see the difference.

Here are the top five jokes from Silverman that we don’t expect to see on NBC:

5. I wanna be the first comic ever to shit on Martin Luther King because people only talk about the good things. They don’t mention he was a litterbug. He would roll up all the windows and lock them and fart in the car with the heat up while his family suffered…and he would laugh.

4. Everybody blames the Jews for killing Christ, and the Jews try to pass it off on the Romans. I’m one of the few people who believes it was the blacks.

3. [On anal sex] He’s, like, trying to sell me on it being “natural.” I’m like, “Um, first of all—doody comes out of there, ok? And second of all—fucking doody comes out of there.” I don’t need two reasons when doody’s involved.

2. I was licking jelly off of my boyfriend’s penis and all of a sudden I’m thinking, “Oh My God, I’m turning into my mother!”

1. “I Love You More”

[Writer's Note: To get the full effect of this twisted love song, watch all the way to the end. Here's the first few lines:]

I love you more than bears love honey
I love you more than Jews love money
I love you more than Asians are good at math
I love you even if it’s not hip
I love you more than black people don’t tip
I love you more then Puerto Ricans need baths

I love you more than girls love dolls
I love you more than dogs love balls
I love you more than the white stuff in a zit
I love you Like Gary Busey
I love you more than dykes love pussy
I love you more than my aftershow monster bong hit
