Let Evel Knievel Get ON the plane, I'm getting IN The Plane...

George Carlin turned 70 years old yesterday and I fucking missed it!

George is one of my heroes. He is a national treasure.

One of my heros also Chris! Remember the airline safety speech? I paraphrase:

"Excuse me miss, does the tab go into the buckle, or does the buckle go on and about the tab?

I just wanted some clarification..."

I saw that the other day. It didn't make me feel any younger on my birthday to hear that Carlin was 70 the next day.

He truly is a national treasure. I loved his old stuff, but I think I like his newer stuff even better-- the way he explores language and how we use language to avoid real communication, rather than actually communicating.

I love his stuff, also. Wow, 70.

"Nicky, Vinnie, and Tony would beat the shit out of Todd, Kyle, and Tucker."

So true...

I need to buy cake tonight-- lots of cake to make up for a missed B-day!!
