“Frisbeetarianism is the belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the roof and gets stuck.”
“I think it’s the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately.”
“If it’s true that our species is alone in the universe, then I’d have to say that the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little.”
– George Carlin
I don’t know how I didn’t see this online yesterday but I didn’t.
George Carlin, who died of heart failure Sunday at 71, leaves behind not only a series of memorable routines, but a legal legacy: His most celebrated monologue, a frantic, informed riff on those infamous seven words, led to a Supreme Court decision on broadcasting offensive language.
On a lighter, and now somewhat awkward-to-mention note, Happy Birthday Jake. :)
