If after reading this long enough you haven’t yet figured out that I’m basically a libertarian, well the very fact that I’m dedicating a post to Lewis Black should be the final, final evidence needed. I’m not much in the mood for chatting about politics today, but there’s always a need for a little bit of humor, so here goes and enjoy:
“Earth Day was created because we were doing a lot of drugs, more drugs than you could ever f@*! imagine. And so we came up with Earth Day, so we’d have one day that would remind us what planet we were living on.” – this is by no means our suggestion that drugs are in any way good…
“I don’t know if watching Chaz Bono will turn your kids into transsexuals, but I’m pretty sure that letting them watch Keith Ablow will turn them into assholes”
“If you really think there’s a Santa, why don’t you sit on the front steps all night in the freezing cold and see if he climbs down any chimneys tonight. Good luck. And since we’re a family that isn’t lucky enough to have a chimney, how would Santa get into our house? Does he bring a locksmith with him? And it probably would have to be a Jewish locksmith, because a Christian locksmith is going to want to be home with his family. And how many Jewish locksmiths are there? None.”
“All you had to say was, ‘I am a writer,’ and you became one. You didn’t even have to write anything. You could just sit in a coffee shop with a notebook and stare into space, with a slightly bemused look on your face, judging the weight of the world with a jaundiced eye. As you can see, you can be completely full of shit and still be a writer…I also thought it was going to be a great way to meet girls, but it wasn’t–probably because as I was staring into space, I no doubt looked mildly retarded. You see, I wanted to write plays, which in retrospect is a lot harder than learning Mandarin, I think. How I ended up in this delusional state shall be saved for another time.”
I think I’ve given a pretty rich couple of topics here for commentary, anyone care to sound off?
