|George CarlinPage 1 of 1 |
|I was just wondering of there were any other Carlin fans who'd like to share some of his more memorable quips...|
One of my faves: "Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?"
Also, I remember liking one of him going off on a diatribe about "proud parents," and how just because you think your child is interesting and adorable doesn't mean that other people are going to share the same opinion.

|What exactly is "mid-air"? Is there another part of air besides the "mid" part?|
George Washington's brother was the Uncle of our Country.

|My Fav.--I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.|

|George....most brilliant comedian ever. I can remember being a teenager and watching his HBO specials and just laughing so hard that I cried.|
Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

|That's rich, I've been on a total George carlin kick recently (downloaded all his Albums and been listening to them at work)|
"Haven't you noticed that most of the people against abortion are people you wouldn't want to f&*k in the first place?"
"I was a practicing Catholic until I reached the age of reason"
"Forget the drug dealers, if you want to slow down the drug trade you have to start executing these white bankers"
"A Manic will beat nine people to death with a steel dildo;
A Crazy Person with beat nine people to death with a steel dildo while wearing a Bugs Bunny costume.
We can't put all of them away, we need to keep some of them around just for the entertainment.
Like a guy who tells you that the King of Sweden is using his penis as a radio transmitter to send anti-semetic lesbian meatloaf recipes to Soupy Sails and Marvin Hamliech.
A guy like that, you want to give him his own radio show"
"I've always wondered, does a rapist leave the house in the morning with a hard-on?"

|I think the most profound Carlin routine for me is the one where he points out that it's actually the people that vote that don't have a right to complain, not the other way around. His basic reasoning is that it's these people that are supporting a broken system and also that the ***hole politicians that they vote into office are simply a reflection of the public. Brilliant political/social commentary and I agree wholeheartedly.|

If you're not from the UK, you probs haven't heard of Charlie Brooker and Frankie Boyle, also brilliantly abusive and funny.

|In the nearby city of Winnipeg, they're building a 'Human Tights Museum', organized by someone who's looking for a headline for their eventual tombstone. And the only way I could get behind it is it had George Carlin's You Have No Rights monologue carved in stone outside. Easy to look up, otherwise it's too long to quote. To wit, there are no rights, God would not have chosen those particular "God-given" rights, all countries have a different set of 'basic human rights' and they are, in fact, temporary privileges the government can take away whenever they please. The government doesn't care about you, just its power, and you have unlimited rights or no rights at all.|
Yikes. Maybe I should have just riffed on the Hippy Dippy Weatherman!

|A Human Tights Museum. That I'd like to see. And I'm not even a dancer.|

|My favorite- I was dancing with a woman recently and she told me she had a yeast infection, and I told her 'well bake me a fukin loaf of bread!' Haha classic Carlin.|

Saw him three times, was lucky enough to meet him briefly. Personally, I feel he and Bill Hicks will have philosophic recognition
