classic

I wished he had lived longer to educate the world on his anti-religous beliefs. He is brutally honest, yet educates via humor, making it palatable for the (shrinking) pro-religous stand-outs.

True.

George Carlin once again dares to expose the reality of human nature. More than a comedy show this is a philosophic and poetic aproach to everything people are afraid to say.

"Living The Dream"

... that's what white people say when you ask 'em, "Hi, how're you doing?". It actually means "everyday I wake up wanting to kill myself".

So, how're you doing?
