I think it is high time for a George Carlin thread . Taking the baton from Lenny Bruce he was able to expose the bare bones of our culture through dissecting our use of language . Hopefully his legacy will include millions of people who are not so easily manipulated by advertising and propaganda . Here is a long video of George giving a speech to the Press Club on C-Span in 1999 :

I see what you did here, Wayne, but you were a few days late for Georgie's 77th birthday (May 12th). No prob. I'm sure he is smiling down on us and he's pleased:

Excellent Wayne. I'm a big fan of Carlin. Is this thread open to "any" videos by Mr. Carlin? The reason why I ask is that many of his talks, interviews, performances are politically tinged. I would like to participate but don't want to break the rules.

If you're at work TURN IT UP

I love Carlin. I got turned on to him young, sometime around when he put out 'you're all diseased' and 'napalm and silly putty'
Him, Bill, and Henry.
