George Carlin’s Greatest Disappointment

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you might have heard that iconic comedian George Carlin recently relocated to the big diner in the sky. His life was one to be celebrated – a long string of memorable accomplishments and achievements certainly worth remembering. Yet, imagine my surprise – and his disappointment, wherever he is at the moment – at the discovery that one thing George Carlin never managed to achieve during his years here on earth was to get a file on himself at FBI headquarters…

It’s a travesty, I tell you; an outrage. I mean, looking back on his life – especially the turbulent years of the 1960s and 1970s – it’s hard to imagine how he could have done more to come to the attention of the G-Men. I mean, Lenny Bruce had a file at the Bureau, but George Effing Carlin is denied that dubious honor?

Sorry, George; you was robbed.
