George Carlin, On Death

George Carlin
The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends.

I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What's that, a bonus?

I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement.

You do drugs, alcohol. You party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating...

And you finish off as an orgasm.

-- George Carlin


Thanks for all the laughs, George. And for making us think. I remember that his "stuff" routine was one of the first that I heard:

Everytime I move, or just go away for the weekend, I think of his Stuff piece.

Also - just wanted to tell you - awesome blog.
