Yes, I also agree about Geroge Carlin.

He broke the boundaries of taste, causing the nation to reexamine a lot of Holy Crap.

And Don Rickles, a man who understood (and understands, as he's still alive) who his friends are and what it means to make fun of ethnicity, events, people, etc. - and most loved him for it because his humor contained, at its center, a core of truth.

I really do believe that if, at some point in time, that if we cannot laugh at what we fear and at what we hold dear - whether it be race, pesonality, dogs, cats, parakeets, death, lawyers, bathroom humor, zombies, [fill in the blank] - then we are a nation that is lost and involved in its own egocentricity and ignorance.

Don't forget Lenny Bruce, Director John Waters (thank you, Divine , for your crazy performances.). And thank you, all you great comedians who push the boundaries of taste as you explore what it means to be human.


Don

(Ok, so this horse comes into a bar and the bartender says, "Why the long face?")

Bodda-bing, arf-arf, and meow. It is to laugh!
