I was going to do a thoughtful and expansive post about George Carlin, but I decided to report to you on what, I think, his most notable laurels were.
Using his impeccable knowledge of the English langue, and an immeasurable ability for critical thinking, George Carlin was able to expose the flaws in modern day America, using humor to open the eyes of those who might not be able to see.
He evolved against what might have been deemed as popular, only to have his comedy, “poor” sense of fashion, and observations of taboo subject matter become acceptable in the sphere of pop culture.
Carlin was quoted as saying:
- “Airport security is a stupid idea, it’s a waste of money, and it’s only there for one reason; to make white people feel safe. That’s all. The illusion. The feeling and illusion of safety. To placate the middle class. Cause the authorities know they can’t make an airplane completely safe, too many people have access. You’ll notice the drug smugglers don’t seem to have a lot of trouble getting their little packages on board, do they?! NO!! And God bless them too.”
As a young youth, rocking the gold tooth, Carlin was the first comedian I became aware of, making him fundamental in the assemblage of the lexicon of curse words that I use today and is the foundation of most of my philosophies, such as; FUCK YOU, FUCK YOURSELF, and the always popular, YOU’RE A FUCKING IDIOT.
I leave you with Carlin’s most noteworthy routine, “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television”.
And that’s that.
