Carlin’s Humor

“How come when it’s us it’s an abortion, and when it’s a chicken it’s an omelet?”

Irreverent and original, George Carlin’s love of words came through in the stand-up comedy he shared for almost five decades. Carlin died yesterday at age 71. Carlin said his parents loved language and passed that along to him. He was known for his word play and long list of oxymorons including “jumbo shrimp.”

Carlin saw the absurdities in life. “This is my art, to interpret the world.”
