George Carlin

Net deze Amerikaanse komiek ontdekt, een prachtige misantroop. Als je een min of meer steriotiep beeld hebt van wat Amerikanen denken, bekijk dan een paar van zijn shows. Over Pro-Life bijvoorbeeld of over religie.

Het begint bij "the American Dream" waarover hij zegt: "The reason they call it the American Dream is because you have to be asleep to believe it."

Over vrouwen tegen abortus "Have you noticed that most of the women who are against abortion are women you wouldn’t want to fuck in the first place? There’s such balance in nature."

Over Pro-Life in het algemeen: "Conservatives want live babies so they can raise them to be dead soldiers. Pro-life, these people aren't pro-life, they're killing doctors, what kind of pro-life is that?"

Over de Amerikaanse strijd voor de vrede: "Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity."

Op de verjaardag van Mickey Mouse: "I hope Mickey dies. I do. I hope he goddamn dies. I hope he gets ahold of some tainted cheese and dies lonely and forgotten behind the baseboard of a soiled bathroom in a poor neighborhood with his hand in Goofy's pants."

Over de hoofdzakelijk blanke milieustrijd: "I'm getting tired of that shit. I'm tired of fucking Earth Day, I'm tired of these self-righteous environmentalists, these white, bourgeois liberals who think the only thing wrong with this country is there aren't enough bicycle paths.."

Over het einde van het leven op aarde: "We're going away. And we won't leave much of a trace, either. Thank God for that. The planet'll be here and we'll be long gone. Just another failed mutation. Just another closed-end biological mistake. An evolutionary cul-de-sac. The planet'll shake us off like a bad case of fleas. A surface nuisance."
