Okay, DK, full disclosure, this is a rework of one of George Carlin’s very best lines. If we don’t pilfer from the greats, who the hell else do we pilfer from ?

I listen to Carlin when I am doing laps and it has on multiple occasions nearly caused me to drown. Ditto at the gym, when I am in the middle of a set of barbells and he lets fly with a favorite line and I nearly drop 20 lbs on my delicate toes.

One thing I learned a long time ago is that listening to the best comedic giants is that they teach us how to see. And that is one hell of a gift.
