75 min

It's got a masculine sound!

Like "shotgun", and "ashcan",

and "tow-truck"...!


Everything's been sanitized

now, and cleaned up!

First with these f***ing Christians,

let's just start with them!

Let's not leave out these

PC campus liberal a**holes!

They're just as f***ing bad

from a different direction!

But's everything's different!

Everything's been

polished up! It's "anal

intercourse", "anal rape!"

Bullshit! Cornhole!

I'm a big fan of the prime

time crime shows...

...I like all of them pretty

much, you know, I like

"Law and Order", and all

the spin-offs of that...

I like "CSI", and all of those spin-offs,

'cause they're forensic shows, you know?

And I'm just waiting for

one night to be sitting

there watching one of

them shows, and...

...the chief medical examiner turns

to the lead detective and say "Steve..."

"Looks to me like that after they

killed this guy the perpretators rolled

him over and cornholed him about

thirty or forty f***ing times..."

"And there's a posthumous multiple cornhole

entry wound!"

In prison it's a social activity!

Yeah, it's right there

on the bulletin board!

"Checkers, handball,


Now, just to change the subject

a little bit...

Do you realize...?

...that right this second,

right now...

...somewhere around the world...

...some guy is getting ready

to kill himself?

Ain't that great?

Do you ever stop and think

about that kind of sh*t?

I do! It's fun!

And it's interesting!

And it's true!

Right this second, some guy is getting

ready to bite the big bazooka!

Because statistics show that every year

a million people commit suicide!

A million! That's 280 a day!

That's one every 30 seconds!

There goes another guy!

And I say "guy" because men are four times

more likely than women to commit suicide!

George Carlin

George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) was an American stand-up comedian, actor, author, and social critic. Carlin was noted for his black comedy and reflections on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. He and his "seven dirty words" comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a 5–4 decision affirmed the government's power to regulate indecent material on the public airwaves. He is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential stand-up comics; one newspaper called Carlin "the dean of counterculture comedians". In April 2004, he placed second on the Comedy Central list of "Top 10 Comedians of US Audiences".The first of Carlin's 14 stand-up comedy specials for HBO was filmed in 1977. From the late 1980s, Carlin's routines focused on sociocultural criticism of American society. He often commented on contemporary political issues in the United States and satirized the excesses of American culture. He was a frequent performer and guest host on The Tonight Show during the three-decade Johnny Carson era, and hosted the first episode of Saturday Night Live in 1975. His final HBO special, It's Bad for Ya, was filmed less than four months before his death. In 2008, he was posthumously awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. In 2017, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him second (behind Richard Pryor) on its list of the 50 best stand-up comics of all time. more…
