Fuck George Carlin

If I see one more email thread mentioning how wonderful George Carlin was, I'm gonna be sick. He was a self-righteous, lazy pompous arrogant windbag, and guess what? He personally hated you and everyone else that sends out all these "the world is a worse place without you, George" emails, as if he isn't like, "Fuck you, I got out and you're stuck in, and I made it without offing myself, by the skin of my teeth some nights when it was me and Jack Daniels in a seedy motel near the local gig that barely covered the motel and the gas, but I made it, and if I didn't mention it, fuck you."

I want to grab everyone who loves George Carlin and take a fucking minute to remind you:

EVERYTHING HE POINTED OUT THAT WAS WRONG WITH THE WORLD, HE BLAMED YOU PERSONALLY FOR BECAUSE HE SAID YOU WERE A STUPID FUCKTARD WHO DOESN'T DO SHIT TO MAKE THINGS BETTER.

And I agree. Why not? It's a lot easier to sit around and declare the world a shitty place and blame everyone that's just trying to get by until they die than it is to actually DO SOMETHING to make it a better place.

George Carlin made a business out of saying things that every twenty-something has said at Perkins, Denny's, or whatever 24 hour cafe that serves cheap coffee have said for years. He wasn't original, or even particularly unique. He was a bitter asshole. And he's dead. That's the epitaph he deserves.

Get over it.

  1. Yes, Carlin was all of these things. However, for those that listened to what he said (not just hearing it passively, but actually listened), many actually had ideas on how to fix the things being complained about and made efforts to put them into action. And if you fell short, you were at least still laughing about it.

    What I'm more worried about is someone still eulogizing him this far removed from his death. That is the sign of someone who didn't get any of what Carlin was saying.

    Personal note: RO, please watch the language. I mean, if there's no fucking way to say the shit without breaking down into bullshittery and fucking saying fuck every other damn sentence, then your fucking motherfucking ass better get your shit into a fucking grammar class... ;) {not so much the language itself but an encouragement to be more eloquent, dig?}

  2. I liked his rant on "stuff". Otherwise, I agree.

    Oh, and fuck all ya'll, muthafuckers.

    Just to get with the times.

  3. Even my father-in-law (the cool biological father of my wife, not the sick pedophile) pointed out that the twenty-somethings in Denny's aren't making a multi-million dollar career out of their rants.

    So I can't say he wasn't original or unique. :D

    Still, he was bitter. And I do respect that he made a profit. And my wife says I'm jealous. And she might be right. :)
