George Carlin: Master Wordsmith

Plenty of people love the comedian George Carlin for his jokes. But I love George Carlin for the way he played with words, for the way he turned common phrases and everyday thoughts into something that made you stop and think as well as laugh.

Some of my Carlin favorites:

George Carlin Napalm Album Cover

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

"Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity."

"The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live."

"Atheism is a non-prophet organization."

"When you're born you get a ticket to the freak show. When you're born in America, you get a front row seat."
