Wisdom in Humor
The events of this past week, globally, with mass shootings and stabbings in multiple locations reminds me of a bit from George Carlin’s famous “7 Words You Can’t Say On Television” routine:
I mean, I think the word fuck is an important word. It’s the beginning of life, and, yet it’s a word we use to hurt one other, quite often. And uh, people much wiser than I have said, I’d rather have my son watch a film with two people making love than two people trying to kill one other. And I of course agree. I wish I know who said it first, and I agree with that. But I would like to take it a step further. I would like to substitute the word fuck, for the word kill in all those movie cliches we grew up with. ‘Okay Sheriff, we’re gonna fuck ya now. But we’re gonna fuck ya slow.’
The world would be a much better place if there was more fucking and less killing. Let’s all get on that.
Stay SINful, friends.
