The Great George Carlin Had a Crystal Ball

November 13th, 2012 by Michael Tabor
I absolutely could not believe what I saw on the front page of yesterday’s New York Times – Headline: 15 Inmates Fled in Hurricane, Raising Questions on Security. In a nutshell, when the power went off, the locks on a privately run prison/halfway house in NJ clicked open and 15 maniacs got out. The first thing I thought was OMG – then I said to myself, wait a minute, George Carlin did a bit on this EXACT same scenario: electric goes out, prisoners escape and then rape and kill everyone (this is classic Carlin – I was looking for it on YouTube but couldn’t find it. If anyone gets a hold of this, kindly post it here, thanks).

I’ve blogged about George Carlin several times here so I’ll just keep this short and sweet. George Carlin was so smart that he could actually predict the future – LOL. Many Carlin fans were shocked and amazed after 9/11 because George beforehand said the terrorists would not do it with a bomb, but rather with a table knife (box cutter/table knife – pretty damn close) This clip I do have, check it out

So WhaDaYaThink? What do you think ? Yes, he was crude and in your face but man, there was nobody funnier and more observant of popular culture than George Carlin was.

    I think of him a lot too. For instance, just this morning someone said “I’d be more than happy to…..” and I suddenly hear Carlin’s voice “More than happy….more than happy…How can you be more than happy? You can be happy or you can not be happy, but how can you be MORE than happy?”
