Sorry for all the parentheticals in my above post. I didn’t realize how many I had used (until after I had posted it).....;)
Not shedding any tears over this, but may he rest in peace.
Oh no, supply lines are getting longer and harder to maintain.
What wine goes with Cap,n Crunch?
Give the man a big seegar. NOBODY today is funny to speak of, with the possible exceptions of Jeff Gaffigan and Chris Rock. Dane Cook is a painful triumph of delivery over material (he does do an occasional funny joke). I never got Jerry Seinfeld or Ray Romano, either.
At any rate I'll pray for him, he needs all the help he can get.
I remember watching one of his acts on HBO. He walks out on the stage and the first thing out of his mouth was: "did ya ever notice how most of the women who are against abortion are so ugly that nobody would ever want to f*** them in the first place?" ... a few courtesy chuckles resulted and then he went on about a five minute diatribe about anti-abortion people and then finally decided to get back to his comedy routine. The funniest thing to me about that whole routine was that when I think about the contrast pictures showing hot conservative women and angry liberal women, I think "Man, George must have been into UGLY broads."
Therefore, to f****n' repeat myself.
1. He has heart attack.
2. All goes black
3. He 'comes to', and ...
4. "F**K!!! F**K!!! I was WRONG!!! I'm SORRY!!! OH SH!T!!! NOOOO!!! FORGIVE ME!!! OH NOOOOOOO!!! NOOOOO!!!! PLEASE GOD, I DIDN"T KNOW... HELP ME!!! HELP ME!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
And God says, "S**t, George, calm the f**k down and don't P**s yourself. Jesus f****n' Christ, there ain't no way I'm goin' to let a "M**********r like you who made Me laugh so f****n' much end up anywhere but here. Here, have an angel. Take this one, she's a big fan of yours. Pretty little c**t, ain't she? Nice t**s. And take it from Me, she's a great c********r. You two go off and have a f****n' great time, okay? Say hi to Lenny for Me."
He did a ‘looking in the refrigerator’ routine that I wish I could hear again.
“What is this green stuff”
Wife: “What does it look like?”
He did a routine on the Carson Show no other comedian could have done.
He came out on stage and just stared at the audience, it seemed like five minutes, using just his face he brought down the house.
About things you find/see at the airport-
"And then have you ever heard of this one...a non...stop..fliiight.... Unh-uh! Not me! Bull-s**t!
I insist that my flight stop. Preferably, right at the end."
I don't know why, but those lines, and the way he delivered them, were particularly funny to me.
One of many classic bits. RIP.
“Today's B— S—t religion actually convinces people there is an invisible “man” in the sky....”
Wonder what ‘Ol George said today when he saw that “Invisible Man”?????????????????
Humor from the riot day’s...
At one time I thought George Carlin was a funny and edgy comic. As I got older, I came to realize that he was really not as funny as I held him up to be. That was probably when I worked at a Carlin show in college and saw people walking out.
George Carlin was a very funny and creative man who, when he wasn’t pi**ing me off with his political stances, had a tendency to make me laugh until soda came out of places it shouldn’t ever. The notoriety he earned as a result of the Seven Dirty Words routine sometimes obscured the fact that Mr.Carlin was a gifted linguist with a fine ear for the cultural peculiarities of language, as well as the larger peculiarities of culture. RIP.
"Two guys in an elevator, one guy farts, everybody knows who did it! The other guy gets off at the mezzanine and walks down."
I don't know why, but... when I was 12, that really broke me up. :-)
I was a big fan when I was younger. Still enjoyed him, at times, when he wasn't going off on political rants. Saw him in person three times... always enjoyed it. But, NOBODY made me laugh harder than Rodney Dangerfield in person!
Rest in peace, George. Love ya, man!
