Default Happy Birthday Mr Carlin

George would have been 83 today, he would have had a field day with today's politics!

I wanted to attach a George quote, but the man had too damn many quotable lines to choose from. All I can really say is humanity lost something very important when he died.

I've always loved the 10 Commandments bit. There's so many to choose from, the guy was just fantastic.

NSFW!

Carlin is one of my favorites. At least twice a week I will put on a Carlin YouTube video or audio as I fall asleep. His stuff never seems to get old.

And if you want it NSFW'd you dont know George. Also...you should be working from home so this should be totally safe for 'work.'
