Cheers and Jeers: Wednesday

2 2 8

Tuesday with George

Hard to believe it was fourteen years ago when we got the news that Philosopher of Comedy George Carlin had died too young at 71. Seems appropriate to remember him with some of his brain droppings…

"Remember, kids, Mr. Policeman is your friend. Always cooperate with him. Mr. Policeman wants to help you, so you must help Mr. Policeman. Don't forget, if you refuse to cooperate, Mr. Policeman will beat you to death. Especially if you're not white."

“Hansel and Gretel discovered the ginger bread house about 45 minutes after they discovered the mushrooms."

"Unbelievably, a goldfish can kill a gorilla. However, it does require a substantial element of surprise."


"Children's Hospital in New York is quite an amazing place. On a recent visit, I saw two seven-year-olds performing a kidney transplant."

"They always say the vice president is just a heartbeat away from the presidency. Don’t they mean the lack of a heartbeat?"

“People who see life as anything other than pure entertainment are missing the point.”

There's a message window that comes up on my computer screen whenever I type a command the computer doesn’t like. It says, "Fuck you, I don’t do that."

“When it comes to God's existence, I'm not an atheist and I'm not an agnostic. I'm an acrostic. I'm puzzled by the whole thing.”

"Stick around. China's gonna win it all."

And if you have time, sit back for ten minutes and appreciate the sheer preparation and practice required to pull off his legendary (and NSFW) set about those 7 famous words. Like a vuvuzela to the ears of the Puritan.

And now, our feature presentation…
