RIP, George

Three comedians are in what I call my Comedy Triumvirate: Sam Kinison, Robin Williams and George Carlin. I was fortunate to have seen all three live and that I had the foresight to go to the bathroom before their shows started so I wouldn’t pee myself laughing. Carlin was my first exposure to “adult” comedy when I was but a wee lass; I used to entertain my first grade classmates with his “W-I-N-O” routine (I know many reading this are now saying “Well, that explains a lot”). He got to be kind of curmudgeonly in his later life, but his observations were always spot on. In his memory, here’s his great monologue “Pro-Life Is Anti-Woman.”
