George Carlin on aging
September 17, 2010

“One of the best things about getting old is that you get to forget stuff, even important stuff. You can even make believe you have Alzheimer’s disease. Ah, that’s a lot of fun. Works great at the family dinner table.

You look around and say ‘Who are you people and where is my horse?’ 

Then you stare at your oldest son and say ‘Agnes! I haven’t seen you since first communion!’

It fucks them up. It’ll take them a week to get over that shit, and they’ll listen to you a lot more carefully from then on.

So don’t be afraid of getting old, it’s a great time of life. You get to take advantage of people…and you’re not responsible for anything!”

Thanks to Carlin for giving all of us something to look forward to one day. Wisdom is very nice, but nothing beats having a good laugh at the expense of friends and family members!
