Earth Day humor… because laughter is *still* the best medicine

                                       

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.

    It makes all the sense in the world to me. It makes more sense than my tasks for today as a matter of fact. Herding cats in Af/Pak today. Herding cattle is way easier and more rewarding.
    Breaking horses is less dangerous as well. Meetings in the ‘green zone’ today. Kandahar.

    Thanks Mata!

    I remember reading Rush Limbaugh’s book where he said about the same thing. God is in charge and we are arrogant to think we understand anything.
