On George Carlin:
Hes average, personally i like Chris Rock, Eddy Murphy and Russel Peters most. Never heard of him until he died and i even asked my dad, who knows most bigger comedians and he had never heard of him.
Feel free to link me to some of his good stuff, his 7 swearwords stuff was pretty…. average.
Nobbeh – who is level 44
I know my Dad, he knows football (the good kind), nuclear maintainence, 60s and 70s rock and pop, safety regulations, union politics and a bit about almost every other subject. I wouldn’t go posting on the internet about how I asked my dad (who is not a bona fide authority on anything) about said subject. I might say that I looked around some comedy blogs or science manuals or whatever, but not “I asked Dad, he says get stuffed“.
I am a Dad too. I pretend to know everything sometimes too. However, I like to think that I’ll admit when I’m stumped. I don’t want my kids or neices and nephews to think they can use me as an authority on anything save what I’m an expert on, and even then I’d like to think they’d lie and use a euphamism like “I asked a professional asshole, and he says you’re part of the club” or “I know an expert in social dissasspointment, he says that if you sucked any more at being in relationships you’d be looking to on Henry the 8th memoirs for advice”
Or something like that.
