The Two Commandments

In the interests slightly politically incorrect comedy (yes I'm segueing from something I wrote last week...it counts!) I have for you another true master of the art. The gone too soon George Carlin. I could probably post his infamous "Seven Words" routine, but that would be something most people know. This is him breaking down and adjusting the Ten Commandments. Now I'm all for freedom or religion, and I'm a believer in God myself, but even I found these hilarious. Plus he makes some excellent points. Especially "The more devout they are, the more they think killing is negotiable." I know not every religious person is like that. I'm not really looking to start a debate, just share a good lesson wrapped in good comedy.



Although I must say that the comic genius Zach Wiener from SMBC has him beat by having just one commandment.




PS if you're religious I really did mean no offense. I hope you can see the funny side.

  7. Theists shouldn't be offended by this stuff as easily as they are. I mean, come on, jokes are jokes, and it isn't as though they don't have a thousand atheist-related injokes.

  14. I do miss George Carlin. He was like a teddy bear with spikes coming out of his fur. So darn cute, but as prickly as a cactus. Now to catch up.

  17. Lol, sorry bud. From what we can observe you are totally right. "freedom *OR* religion". You can't have both unless one or the other has been compromised.

    1. I don't really buy that. You can have freedom OF religion by allowing people to believe what they want. Technically not believing comes under this really because you're choosing to not believe. You can believe in God without restricting yourself, and even if you don't believe then there are plenty of restrictions forced upon you by society.

  20. For me, George Carlin is the greatest comedian ever. Although I don't agree with many of his views...

    ReplyDelete
  21. He's not the greatest comedian ever. I like his work. I like him more than Louis CK and that english guy whats his name err ffrom the office UK.. Ricky Gervais!!
    Off the top of my head I love Dave Chappele Mitch Hedberg & Tosh (early tosh, before he became a pop f4g)
    :p

  23. LOVE George Carlin, and great comic ... thanks for the laughs!!!

  24. The video has been blocked in my country.
    The truth is that the ten commandments could be reduced to just one. Yes, don't be a dick. That was the entire point. It's hard not to be a dick. I was a major one today, and to a complete stranger. I am really hard on myself when I make mistakes.

    1. Try not to be too hard on yourself over the things you do. You might end up like me. If what you did was really wrong, then recognize that, chances are the other person will make sure you do. If not, then try not to beat yourself up.
