About being lazy, who hasn’t been lazy unless you are a workaholic, or a drug addict addicted to speed or something. We’ve all woken up in the morning feeling like we shouldn’t of woken up. “Why did I wake up feeling like this” and go back to bed and perhaps are real late for work. I know that has happened to me more times than I care to admit to. Actually I don’t even care to admit to that, so consider that a gift. And don’t bother trying to return that gift, because you’ll probably be charged for returning it, because nobody is going to want it.

Interesting to hear George Carlin say that he’s in good health except for his heart attack. Which is like a football team saying that al they did was lose fifteen games, but they did manage to win one. “Hey we aren’t completely imperfect, just mostly”. You get a heart attack and you’re one step away from death. And if that is not motivation enough to at least perhaps get you to change your lifestyle, nothing will. Maybe a suicidal person who is also an idiot at the same time and perhaps that is why they are suicidal and is so stupid, they even fail at killing themselves, wouldn’t understand that.

I liked Johnny Carson’s dumb question to George asking him ” did your heart attack scare you”? Well again unless you’re suicidal or have balls harder than concrete of course that would scare you! I mean what is the next question, “how did the heart attack make you feel?” Well again not to make this whole post about suicide, but of course you’ll feel scared about that and perhaps think you are going to die. If you’re suicidal you might be thinking “come on God, I’m ready to go!”.

Bad names for kids. Not a problem I have to worry about considering I don’t have kids and perhaps will never have kids (knock on wood). But for all you caring parents out there who care about your kids health and reputation and success in life, do your kids justice and give them a responsible name. Don’t name your son Leslie, unless you are want them to be gay or something. Give your son a real guys kind of name that commands respect. So you don’t have to worry about him getting beat up, or losing his lunch money. Same thing with girls, give them a real feminine, but don’t name them Buffy or something where they have to worry about bimbo jokes.

As far as dumb people, who would we have to make fun of if America was a country that mostly produced perfect people and other genius’? That is where humor comes from, from watching people screw up and a big part of being human is screwing up and experiencing things before we know what they mean, or how to react to them. That is how we learn in life. So eliminate the stupid people and you’ll see unemployment sore in America especially in Los Angeles with all the out-of-work comedians and other entertainers. Just a little look at life from human-being.
