So long, George!
Monday, Aug 04, 2008

"It gives you a good feeling, a feeling of power, of superiority, to have outlasted another old friend. But you can't do it too soon, you can't come running home from the funeral and get the book out -- you can't do that. You have to let a little time go by. I have a rule of thumb: six weeks. If you're a friend of mine, and you're in my book and you die, I leave you alone for an extra six weeks. Six extra weeks in the book, on the house, it's on me. But after that, 'hey, facts are facts—fuck you, you're dead! Out you fucking go!'"

-- George Carlin, It's Bad for Ya! (2008)
