I'll say this much, my 23 year old son has been a fan of Chapelle's for quite some time, and I didn't always agree with him watching his show, it was
just so ROUGH!!!! It has been a minute since I've seen anything about him on cable or anywhere else, and now you will cause me to bring the subject
up with my son...EVEN though I find Chappelle extremely ABRASIVE...when you mention Carlin and Chapelle together... I totally GET IT!! (FINALLY is
what my son would say)
Now, I'm OLD... and that's all I'm going to say...I actually had the PLEASURE of growing up on CARLIN!!! Brilliant.. that's the one and only word I
can use to describe him, I Loved his comedy!!!
I literally used to play my parents VINYL records of him over and over for fun, in the basement of our house. WHO can say that they EVER listened to
STAND UP on Vinyl???? Much LESS, George Carlin ???? For the record I listened to Cheech and Chong on Vinyl also, but they weren't nearly as
interesting, intelligent or IMPRESSIVE verbally as CARLIN ( He was my absolute favorite and I memorized EVERY WORD)
My brother and I would lip sync the skits from the record while they played... I'm going to now embarrass myself I remember this one skit where he
was doing a game show and out of nowhere he asked the audience.....
CARLIN: Who wants to be Queen for the day????
MAN: Me!!!!-I do I do!!
CARLIN: No, Uh No, not you sir, not you sir
OKAY!!!!! I get it, that made absolutely NO SENSE... kinda like the old saying ( Guess you had to be there) I STILL couldn't help but post it for the
sheer chance that SOMEONE out there KNOWS what the heck I'm talking about!!!!!!!! .
