Lemme see if I got this straight -- A guy who is dumb enough to get himself addicted to a street drug and indebted to IRS for millions of dollars is calling other people stupid for dropping a few bucks on an entertaining weekend in Vegas? Did I get that right?

Carlin stopped being funny about 20 years ago. Think he's been suffering from senility for several years. As recently as the 80's, I thought he was a brilliant and thoroughly entertaining comedian. He's lost it all though. Too bad.

Carlin replied by inviting her, in two words, to perform a sexual act upon him.

Two words? "F--- me?" "F------ me?" How else could he convey such a desire with just two words? It would seem almost necessary for the second word to be "me," which means the first must be a command. Maybe "suck this?" It seems like adding a finger-point would be cheating the two word limit.

Those don't sound at all graceful.

I mean, 3 words is easy to understand, "[verb] my [noun];" the number of constructions are almost limitless. But two words? The man is a master wordsmith, but I don't see how he could have done it.

Like most liberals and drug addicts the older they get the more they go over the deep end. He used to be great when he first started out. His humor was funny and related to true life experiences. But like most old worn out druggies and left wing wacko's they just can't hold it together. Thanks for the information, I won't be buying a ticket to any of his shows in the near future,.... I'll buy myself a drink instead.

If only I had a dime for every time George Carlin has sucked on an imaginary joint during his act.

The last time I really paid any attention to Georgie-boy was when he played Flip Wilson's side kick.

He said he was eager to get out of "this (bad word) hotel" and back east "where the real people are."

Like Atlanic City???

Carlin is an aging old hippy who should have retired 20 years ago.

Unless your Bob Hope or you have an act that is timeless (like Rodney Dangerfield) comics should leave the public square at 60.

If you're 60 years old have pony tail, use 4 letter words, and talk about sex alot - you aren't cool, you're an embarrassing old bore.

Carlin is an arrogant, major-league-CLYMER.

Carlin is right. Anyone who bets against Corporate (Casino) or State (Lotteries) odds is f'n stupid, imo.

I have seen Carlin three times (twice in Vegas) and his shows seem to follow a pattern. The first 25 minutes or so are side splittingly funny, he is a very funny guy. But, once he starts on his preachy, political "humorist" screed you might as well leave. It sucks.
