I wouldn't start a thread with a link b/c it ain't right. But neither is losing the the one MAN who made us look right in the mirror and see our ugly side. From there, you either see your errors or continue being an ass.
George Carlin - The undiputed champion of Stand-Up Comedians because he was the reason most of the others decided to do it. There actually could be some dignity in this profession of stand-up comedy. When he was honored on HBO for his lifetime of acheivement he was humble & witty and then he said something that shocked me. He looked at unproven host Jon Stewart and said "I expect big things from you." I remember thinking as Stewart was clearly moved by the comment, that he was just being nice Jon. You're average at best. Now almost 10 years later, Jon Stewart keeps the country sane on a daily basis with his Daily Show. Props to the master. George sees what we seemingly can not. We don't always agree, but I love him like a father.
Never even HEARD of THAT! I graduated HS in '89 which is three years before George Joined the show. I was wondering what Gamergirl meant by The Conductor. I'm so old. I'd never even heard of Thomas the Tank Engine either.
My all time favorite George Carlin (my x and I first owned it on eight track now I have it on CD) was the s**t track. Even though it's from the seventies it still makes me laugh now...in his words "...man that was some good s**t' So sad that He's no more.
