Just followed a link to a George Carlin bit on war. He was making the
profoundly insightful and never-before-observed point that war can be
like a dick-size competition.
that kind of insight into human frailties? Oh wait, EVERY SINGLE ONE
OF THEM. Every bit of his I’ve ever seen has been like that. It’s like a guy
gets up and says “boy, those women. They sure are moody once a month,
amirite?” and everyone roars with laughter. RIP and all that, but seriously, I think he’s one of the most
overrated comics of all time.
UPDATE: BTW, I feel the same way about Lewis Black, a man who appears to think that yelling makes things funny. It doesn’t.
