George Carlin: Ευφυολογήματα στα Αγγλικά

Τα ευφυολογήματα του George Carlin είναι από τις πιο δημοφιλείς σελίδες στο Γνωμικολογικόν.
Εδώ παραθέτω μερικές από τις ατάκες του που είναι καλύτερες στα Αγγλικά (χάνουν πολύ στη μετάφραση) και γι' αυτό το λόγο δεν τις έχω συμπεριλάβει:
  • If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten.
  • Electricity is really just organized lightning.
  • Always do whatever' s next.
  • Just cause you got the monkey off your back doesn't mean the circus has left town.
  • Standing ovations have become far too commonplace. What we need are ovations where the audience members all punch and kick one another.
  • In comic strips, the person on the right always speaks first.
  • I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately.
  • The other night I ate at a real nice family restaurant. Every table had an argument going.
  • Think off-center.
