Thanks for the laugh. Carlin will always be one of my favorites. I still crack up when I see the "Dan, Your hippy-dippy weatherman" routine from the sixties and he says the radar shows some ICBMs coming in across Alaska so forget the weekend extended forcast. He sure has changed a lot, now he does childrens shows like Sunnyside Station on PBS.

I have to ask this one again. Don't know if George Carlin said it first; I found it in the local paper with a list much like this one.
"If you choke a Smurf, what color does it turn?"
And my 11-year-old's favorite: "Why is there Braille on the drive- through teller machines?"

"Five day deoderant pads, two years I wore those mothers". G.C. was always one of my favorites. Thanks for the laughs.
