The other day I was watching Jersey Girl on television. Don’t judge me. My 16 year old son came in and sat with me. After less than a minute he asked, “What the hell is this garbage?” I told him it was a good movie and should give it a chance. He noticed George Carlin on the screen and decided it was worth watching.
He is a huge fan of Carlin, but after 30 seconds he got up to leave. I told him he needed to give it more of a chance because it was Carlin, and he loved Carlin. He looked at me with a facial expression that implied he felt sorry for me, and then in a tone that implied he was disgusted with me, said, “That’s is not George Carlin”.
My brilliant child emailed me this video under the subject “THIS IS GEORGE CARLIN”. Carlin was a genius and I am thankful my son reminded me. Watch, laugh, marvel, and enjoy. Rest in Peace Mr. Carlin. You are loved by generations and this is a brilliant piece of work. To my son, you were so right! Thank you Baby. Keep the faith.
