  • One of my favorite George Carlin bits in which he describes the sterilization of the American language. From the 1990 special Doin' it Again.

    By the way you can't say Blind Spot anymore you have to say Dead Angle because apparently the prior is horrendously Ableist.

    Ummm, if I have a son, I would teach him the George Carlin way. This guy is such a realist he knows the true mechanics of culture.

    George and Richard Pryor were my favorites growing up - they weren't just hilarious, but they taught us a lot along the way. George inspired Jon Stewart, who has since brought us John Oliver, Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, Samantha and Bee, among others...
    Thanks George, you will never be forgotten.

    The government does not murder people, it engages in capital punishment.

    And now it has been 'rebranded' "PTSD". Sure it is less syllables than before, but it is way less humanized.
