This is the best ending ever.

Quote:
I know George didn't believe in heaven or hell. Like death, they were just more comedy premises. And it just makes me even sadder to think that when I reach my own end, whatever tumbling cataclysmic vortex of existence I'm spinning through, in that moment I will still have to think, "Carlin already did it."

Nice.

I'd forgotten you were unfamiliar with George Carlin when you were visiting, Thomas. Glad we gave you something to remember besides the statue of Opie and Andy.

I remember the Buffalo shrimp, its effect on my waistline, and your threats to blackmail me with it in the evilest possible way. Thank Murphy George Carlin didn't see me, and didn't make a sketch about me. I would have died of embarrassment.

But the shrimps sure were good.

Thanks for the link to the Seinfeld piece, Edgarblythe. I was struck by the comment on his performing voice. Back in the seventies I had a very short conversation with him at a place where I worked, and his voice wasn't performance-y. I've been watching videos of him over the last day or so, and hear anew the range of tones and depth in his vocal style. Master of words, for sure.
