Jesus Brought the Pork Chops?

George Carlin passed away this week-end. I dug his stuff. When at first I encountered him as Rufus in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, I had no idea who he was. In fact, I didn’t discover Carlin the comedian until way later, in the last year I lived in the States. The man was hilarious and truthful, he stayed angry until the end of his 71 years, and he was all the better for it. New York Times ran the obit today. 

“I don’t have pet peeves,” he said, correcting the interviewer. And with a mischievous glint in his eyes, he added, “I have major, psychotic hatreds.”
