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.
