If the smiles our resident grin-meister, Wordsmith, just aren’t enough to “honor” the absurdity of this day, allow me to add another. The Earth and environmentalism, according to the late, great George Carlin…. In light of his death not long after, it’s almost prescient in how inconsequential humans are in the scope of time and events. Or, as Carlin puts it, “The planet will shake us off like a bad case of fleas…”
It’s seven minutes of laughter, with the delicious irony of truth, meant to rightfully humble humans as an arrogant species, thrown in for good measure.
Carlin… yes, he’s one of those “bad case of fleas” we shall miss.
