Today is the 3rd anniversary of the passing of one of our heroes, George Carlin.

George meant a lot to us because of his incredible talent for breaking things down and exposing the ridiculous notions of Religion, Politics, and Social Interaction for what they really are:  Bullshit!

In a lot of ways, he was a Philosopher that presented his teachings via the instrument of Stand-Up Comedy: a modern day Plato to Lenny Bruce’s Socrates.

One of our favorite bits of his is this one about the 10 Commandments.

To continue my Greek Philosopher metaphor, George’s real legacy will be who becomes Aristotle in this scenario?  Bill Maher? Jon Stewart? Steven Colbert?  All 3 were and continue to be influenced by the singular genius of George Carlin.
