Bye, George. F****** sad!

George Carlin has a Web site with an "start up" that befits the mind of this demented genius. And the URL is easy enough to remember: www.georgecarlin.com. From the naked mind of:


1. Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things.

2. One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.

3. Atheism is a non-prophet organization.

4. If man evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have monkeys and apes?

5. The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.

6. I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, "Where's the self-help section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

7. Could it be that all those trick-or-treaters wearing sheets aren't going as ghosts but as mattresses?

8. If a mute swears, does his mother wash his hands with soap?

9. If a man is standing in the middle of the forest speaking and there is no woman around to hear him...is he still wrong?

10. If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

11. Is there another word for synonym? 12. Isn't it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do practice?"

13. Where do forest rangers go to "get away from it all?"

14. What do you do when you see an endangered animal eating an endangered plant?

15. If a parsley farmer is sued, can they garnish his wages?

16. Would a fly without wings be called a walk?

17. Why do they lock gas station bathrooms? Are they afraid someone will clean them?

18. If a turtle doesn't have a shell, is he homeless or naked?

19. Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

20. Can vegetarians eat animal crackers?

21. If the police arrest a mime, do they tell him he has the right to remain silent?

22. Why do they put Braille on the drive-through bank machines?

24. How do they get the deer to cross at that yellow road sign?

25. Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

26. What was the best thing before sliced bread?

27. One nice thing about egotists: they don't talk about other people.

28. Does the Little Mermaid wear an algebra?

29. Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?

30. How is it possible to have a civil war?

31. If God dropped acid, would he see people?

32. If one synchronized swimmer drowns, do the rest drown too?

33. If you ate pasta and antipasto, would you still be hungry?

34. If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?

35. Whose cruel idea was it for the word "Lisp" to have a "S" in it?

36. Why are hemorrhoids called "hemorrhoids" instead of "asteroids"?

37. Why is it called tourist season if we can't shoot at them?

38. Why is the alphabet in that order? Is it because of that song?

39. Where are we going? And what's with this hand basket?

40. If the "black box" flight recorder is never damaged during a plane crash, why isn't the whole damn airplane made out of that stuff?

41. Why is there an expiration date on sour cream?

My favourite will always be "the 7 words you can't say on television" - although today I'm sure it would sound dated. RIP George & thanks.

Some "joker" is going around youtube on all the George Carlin videos and slandering him. I don't know if George would be angry about that or think it was funny.

Shame...Carlin was great...

Alas, poor George. A fellow of infinite jest
06/23/2008 07:47:07 AM · #11
So sad. We'll miss ya, George.

I saw him live a couple of years ago, funny man.

My day will be sad.

RIP to the best most honest man in the business.

I will love this man forever and regret never seeing him live.

I weep for you George.

GOD DAMMIT!!! (As he so often said)

I'm very sad.....today
I wonder who has all his STUF

06/23/2008 09:19:39 AM · #15
Very sad. He was incredibly funny.
06/23/2008 09:36:38 AM · #16
He has been my husbands favorite for a very long time. His mother and sister bought us tickets for his birthday and we were luky enough to find a babysitter and see it!!! It's just sad that we'll never get to again.
06/23/2008 09:39:20 AM · #17
He will be missed...
06/23/2008 09:54:04 AM · #18
You still need to be careful about meeting his brother at stoplights.....

God's going to have a hell of a time keeping him out of trouble in heaven. Maybe he'll let him stay with AJ Foyt. :)

Don't think so. GC would not have it.

Oh damn, I don't believe this :-( My favorite comedian of all time :-(

06/23/2008 11:35:32 AM · #24
I can't believe he was 71. Saw an interview with him about 6 months ago and I swear I thought he looked 50s-ish. Sad day, his intelligent humor will be missed.

"And now, a message from the National Apple Association: F*&K PEARS!"

So long George you will be missed...
