Skip to comments.Earth Day humor… because laughter is *still* the best medicine

If the smiles our resident grin-meister, Wordsmith, just aren't enough to "honor" the absurdity of this day, allow me to add another. The Earth and environmentalism, according to the late, great George Carlin.... In light of his death not long after, it's almost prescient in how inconsequential humans are in the scope of time and events. Or, as Carlin puts it, "The planet will shake us off like a bad case of fleas..."
It's seven minutes of laughter, with the delicious irony of truth, meant to rightfully humble humans as an arrogant species, thrown in for good measure.
Carlin... yes, he's one of those "bad case of fleas" we shall miss.

I watched that Earth First video twice, and LMAO!
These yahoos are certifiable. LOL!
Yeah, Carlin is/was a riot. His point is, we’re not going to be here long, and to hell with trying to save anything, but aren’t we stewards while we’re here, and can’t we do better than having whales die from all the garbage in the ocean? Hate to lose hysterically funny comedians, but hate to lose majestic mammals because we have strewn our garbage into the oceans.
Now the whale watch tourists boats are wondering where the whales have gone. The gray that they just found had all kinds of garbage in it’s stomach. Not worried, just saddened.
