A Dose of George Carlin: Laughter is the Best Medicine

ABush Editor
  • In trying to come up with something worthy to report on with George Carlin's death, I kept coming back to who Carlin was as a person. I can certainly sit here and provide an array of opinions on his heart health and go back and forth on steps he could have taken to prevent his death, but something inside tells me he should speak for himself on this one.


    For good or bad, Carlin knew how to make people laugh. And, if nothing else, sometimes laughter is the best medicine for your heart.


    Here are a few of our favorite Carlin "health-related" one-liners:


    #1 Isn’t it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do “practice”?

    #2 Ever wonder about those people who spend $2 apiece on those little bottles of Evian water? Try spelling Evian backward.


    #3 The IQ and the life expectancy of the average American recently passed each other going in opposite directions.


    #4 Death is caused by swallowing small amounts of saliva over a long period of time.


    #5 I recently went to a new doctor and noticed he was located in something called the Professional Building. I felt better right away.
