Thou shalt keep thy religion to thyself.

If you take nothing else from the late George Carlin, take that. Regardless of whether or not you found the comic funny, filthy or both, there’s no denying he performed a service for all Americans by pushing censorship issues to the brink. In fact, bloggers arguably owe the man a hat tip.

His “Seven Dirty Words” routine scared the heck out of the governmwnt and has forced dialogue about what can be said on public airwaves up until the present day.

Here are a few one-liners from Carlin. He’ll be missed, but his legacy lives on.

Ever wonder about those people who spend $2 apiece on those little bottles of Evian water? Try spelling Evian backward.

If a man smiles all the time he’s probably selling something that doesn’t work.

One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.

If man evolved from monkeys and apes. . . why do we still have monkeys and apes?

Is there another word for synonym?

Would a fly without wings be called a walk?

If it requires a uniform, it’s a worthless endeavor.

Isn’t it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do “practice”?

Read tons more here and here.

    ‘Thou shalt keep thy religion to thyself.’ The USA should apply this commandment immediately to its politicians before the whole political system implodes!
