George Carlin has been dead for a good few years. But his stuff still makes us feel alive. It helps us to not shit ourselves. george carlin

There will be much more from George Carlin in the future but for now here’s a couple of short takes from the master of short takes:

“Next time they give you all that civil bullshit about voting, keep in mind that Hitler was elected in a full, free democratic election.

Masturbation is not illegal, but if it were, people would probably take the law into their own hands.

I don’t think we should be governing ourselves. What we need is a king, and every now and then if the king’s not doing a good job, we kill him.

I think I am, therefore, I am. I think.”

And finally:

“If you are motivated enough to go to the store and buy a motivation book, aren’t you motivated enough to do that? So you don’t need the book. Put it back. Tell the clerk, “Fuck you. I’m goin’ home. I’m already motivated.”

What a ride, man! Thanks, George. I know you would jeer at being addressed like this, given you’re current state of non-being. Or you would sneer or scoff or chaff. Or gibe. Dunno, just like to remember you.
