Now This Is A Sermon

The late great George Carlin.

"When you are born in this world you are given a ticket to a freak show. And when you're born in America, you get a front row seat."

  1. Half of a sermon, anyway :)

    I love George Carlin. His was the first celebrity death to really hit me (not the first of my life by a long shot, but the others were just 'oh, a person died')

  2. Yeah, half a sermon.

    There is something refreshing about people who tell the truth and don't hold back. We miss them when they go. I miss Molly Ivins, Kurt Vonnegut, and John Updike, too.

  3. I love the comment he made about when you scratch a cynic you find a disappointed idealist. Absolutely! But it seems if there is one kind of person that is generally held in greater contempt than a cynic, it's an idealist.

    Pffff! What a dreamer! Head in the clouds! Peace, love and understanding - right! GET A JOB!

    And then they go back to making pancakes and scratching their balls with the newest cell phone.

  4. Then there's the corporate mindset ad immediately following . . .
