    That's fake, there's a note about it on Carlin's site. His wife also died a while ago. I think that's why his act is more bitter these days

    It's sappy crap, some of it true, but still, whiney sappy crap

    Re: GEORGE CARLIN -message not funnies.....

    From the site:


    (Ed Note: There is a new bogus Carlin email circulating, which you can see here - it's utterly NOT Carlin's work. New Note [06/01]: Another bogus Carlin piece about life going backwards (also available here and 48,000 other places online). This one has also been attributed to Robert Benson and Andy Rooney. [06/01]: More lists of jokes [ie: "When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?"] being forwarded around the Internet that are not Carlin. It will never end. [07/01] Here are 3 joke lists that were not written by George Carlin: this includes the "Bad American" email that has been making the rounds. We may repeat ourselves here a little in the name of truth...)

    DON'T BLAME ME
    Floating around the Internet these days, posted and e-mailed back and forth, are a number of writings attributed to me, and I want people to know they're not mine. Don't blame me.

    Some are essay-length, some are just short lists of one and two-line jokes, but if they're flyin' around the Internet, they're probably not mine. Occasionally, a couple of jokes on a long list might have come from me, but not often. And because most of this stuff is really lame, it's embarrassing to see my name on it.

    And that's the problem. I want people to know that I take care with my writing, and try to keep my standards high. But most of this "humor" on the Internet is just plain stupid. I guess hard-core fans who follow my stuff closely would be able to spot the fake stuff, because the tone of voice is so different. But a casual fan has no way of knowing, and it bothers me that some people might believe I'd actually be capable of writing some of this stuff.

    "PARADOX OF OUR TIME"
    One of the more embarrassing items making the internet/e-mail rounds is a sappy load of [darn] called "The Paradox of Our Time." The main problem I have with it is that as true as some of the expressed sentiments may be, who really gives a [darn]? Certainly not me.

    I figured out years ago that the human species is totally [darn] and has been for a long time. I also know that the sick, media-consumer culture in America continues to make this so-called problem worse. But the trick, folks, is not to give a [darn]. Like me. I really don't care. I stopped worrying about all this temporal bullshit a long time ago. It's meaningless. (See the preface of "Braindroppings.")

    Another problem I have with "Paradox" is that the ideas are all expressed in a sort of pseudo-spiritual, New-Age-y, "Gee-whiz-can't-we-do-better-than-this" tone of voice. It's not only bad prose and poetry, it's weak philosophy. I hope I never sound like that.

    HOW TO SPOT A FAKE
    Here's a rule of thumb, folks: Nothing you see on the Internet is mine unless it came from one of my albums, books, HBO shows, or appeared on my website. If you see something with my name on it, and you really need to find out if it's mine, post a question on my bulletin board . But only if it's really important to you; don't [darn] around with me for a lark.

    He still rocks socks as a comedian though

    Good to know... With insightful as he is most of the time, it does sound similar to some of his rantings /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Yeah it does, but if you listen to him a lot, you'd know

    A retired pastor actually wrote that

    He was doing Vegas when I was there about 11 months ago... I wanted to go see his show, but no one else wanted to /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif
