My Favorite Comedian

Posted by Cyn | Posted in Fun, NaBloPoMo | Posted on 24-03-2012


Plinky asked, “Who’s your favorite come­di­an? Is there any­one you can’t stand?”

George Car­lin May 12 1937 — June 22 2008

George Car­lin is the King of Come­di­ans as far as I’m con­cerned. He’s always hilar­i­ous. I love watch­ing old clips and read­ing his books. His death was a huge loss to the world and came far too ear­ly. It cer­tain­ly does­n’t hurt that he shared my lack of respect for reli­gion.

I see no rea­son to name come­di­ans I can’t stand and give them atten­tion, but pure­ly phys­i­cal com­e­dy leaves me cold, as does any­thing that involves pick­ing on mem­bers of the audi­ence.

Plinky asked: “When you need a good laugh, who/what do you turn to?”

I can usu­al­ly rely on my Face­book friends to have some­thing up that will make me laugh. They haven’t failed me yet!

“Watch all the top­soil go down the Mis­sis­sip­pi. Trans­port your chil­dren in bas­kets on top of your SUV death­mo­biles. Keep play­ing with your cute and cud­dly pal, the atom. Press your nose against the TV screen for even more edu­ca­tion­al 3rd Rock From The Sun enjoy­ment. Use plen­ti­ful gaso­line to burn book- read­ers at the stake. Don’t eat any­thing but sug­ared pork lard. Do what­ev­er you want.”

I need­ed that laugh, so I fig­ured you might enjoy it too.
