George Carlin, 1937- 2008

In his later years, Carlin could be brilliantly funny, sometimes bitter, and philosophically mind blowing.

George, rest in peace, you rapscallion you.

A classic from Mr. Carlin:
"The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What’s that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you’re too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating …and you finish off as an orgasm."

Sounds like a plan. We could speed this up by just getting really high and heading for the womb.

I think I've done enough of that already...five kids later.

It does seem a little unfair, though..just about the time you figure some stuff out, it's over.

I still remember cruising out to the beach at Anna Maria, listening to Carlin on 8-track...guess I'm ready for my womb now...;)
