George Carlin Quotes- 1-When cheese gets it's picture taken, what does it say?

2-When someone asks you, A penny for your thoughts, and you put your two cents in, what happens to the other penny?

3-If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted?

4-When someone is impatient and says, "I haven't got all day," I always wonder, How can that be? How can you not have all day?

5-I thought about how mothers feed their babies with tiny little spoons and forks so I wondered, what do Chinese mothers use? Toothpicks?

6-If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

7-Is a vegetarian permitted to eat animal crackers?

8-What if there were no hypothetical questions?

9-Frisbeetarianism is the belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the roof and gets stuck.

10-Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations. When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong.

11-Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

12-Before they invented drawing boards, what did they go back to?

13-Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.

14-Why do croutons come in airtight packages? It's just stale bread to begin with.

15-I have as much authority as the Pope, I just don't have as many people who believe it.

16-May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.

17-Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

18-If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why is it still #2?

19-I think it would be interesting if old people got anti-Alzheimer's disease where they slowly began to recover other people's lost memories.

20-Electricity is really just organized lightning.

21-Women like silent men, they think they're listening.

22-"I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence?

23-Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it.

24-If all the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting?

25-Well, if crime fighters fight crime and fire fighters fight fire, what do freedom fighters fight? They never mention that part to us, do they?

26-Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.

27-I recently went to a new doctor and noticed he was located in something called the Professional Building. I felt better right away.

28-Why is the man (or woman) who invests all your money called a broker?

29-I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.

30-There's no present. There's only the immediate future and the recent past.

31-At a formal dinner party, the person nearest death should always be seated closest to the bathroom.

32-As a matter of principle, I never attend the first annual anything.

33-The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.

34-Death is caused by swallowing small amounts of saliva over a long period of time.

35-Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

36-I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately.

37-The only good thing ever to come out of religion was the music.

38-Religion convinced the world that there's an invisible man in the sky who watches everything you do. And there's 10 things he doesn't want you to do or else you'll go to a burning place with a lake of fire until the end of eternity. But he loves you! ...And he needs money! He's all powerful, but he can't handle money!

So long old friend. . He surely made me see things in a new light. I saw him at the "Bob" (Bob Carpenter Center) here in Newark back around 1999 ish. He was holding some notes in his hands, and he came right out and said that he was trying out some new material for the first time that he wanted to use in a upcoming HBO special. He apoagized and asked us (the audiance) to be honest. He definatley was a down to earth guy, and sharp as a tack. I'll miss him alot. R.I.P...........
