These are pretty good. I'm going to print them and use the list at work. Many of my seniors at the retirement community will get a kick out of them.

PS Are you a student of George Carlin??

I have been following him since the 60's when he was on Johnny Carson--remember Al, the Hippy Dippy Weatherman, and "Wonderful WINO?" My elder son started following him once he was old enough to understand the material and even can recite the "Hair" monologue. He even did one of George's routines while he was in the USAF for a dinner. We also liked the Mystery Pudding in the refrigerator routine and are well aware of the seven words that can't be said.
Yesterday, Jamie sent me one of the newest George routines about traffic accidents. You can hear it at the George Carlin website. It is pretty funny-but the ending kind of ruins it for playing it for mixed company.

I'd venture to say that he'd be very good on a cruise ship in a secluded lounge for adults only!!
His wife was from Dayton OH so he visited there every so often, so we read in the newspaper back then when we lived there.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

Ken,
My son just sent me two more George Carlin audio clips. Modern Man and The Suicide Guy. I wouldn't play the second one in mixed company or in front of my mother, grandmother, or the children!
