You wanted some jokes, how about some George Carlin one liners in memory of George?

Our favorite George Carlin one-liners
· I typed the word Google into Google. Guess what came up? Everything.
· You know what would be fun? To have a set of twins, name them Dumbo and Goofy and then just sit back and see how their personalities develop. I’ll bet they’d really enjoy going to school everyday.
· I’ve never seen a homeless guy with a bottle of Gatorade.
· In this country, alcohol is hardly ever seen as a drug problem. Instead, we think of it as more of a driving problem.
· I don’t own any stocks or bonds. All my money is tied up in debt.
· There are caregivers and there are caretakers, and yet the two words are not opposites. Why is this?
· You know an odd feeling? Sitting on the toilet eating a chocolate candy bar.
· I have an impersonal trainer. We meet at the gym, we don’t talk, he works out alone, and I go home.
· Regarding the Boy Scouts, I'm very suspicious of any organization that has a handbook.
· You know what's fun? Go to a German restaurant and insist on using chopsticks.
· People on a diet should have a salad dressing called "250 Islands."
· If the reason for climbing Mt. Everest is that it's hard to do, why does everyone go up the easy side?
· Here's my idea for another one of those "reality-based" TV shows: "No Survivors!" One by one, a psychopathic serial killer tracks down and kills all of the "Survivor" survivors. Think of it as a public service.
· You know the good part about all those executions in Texas? Fewer Texans.
· Regarding jam sessions: jazz musicians are the only workers I can think of who are willing to put in a full shift for pay and then go somewhere else and continue working for free.
· Griddle cakes, pancakes, hotcakes, flapjacks: why are there four names for grilled batter and only one word for love?
· I would like to open a restaurant, call it the Marilyn Monroe CafĂ©, and put hundreds of pictures of Jeff Goldblum on the wall.
· When you think about it, 12:15 p.m. is actually 11:75 a.m.
· Joan Rivers turned into one of the people she used to make fun of.
· I know a transsexual guy whose only ambition is to eat, drink, and be Mary.
· One thing nice about being dead is that you immediately become eligible to appear on stamps and money.
