George Carlin on Religion

Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of 10 things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these 10 things, he has a special place full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry until the end of time! But he loves you.”

Kyle Kinane on Phở

“If you don’t know what phở is, it’s a Vietnamese soup that answers the question, ‘What happens when a former child soldier pours hot rainwater over fish nightmares?’ It’s delicious, and I can’t stop eating it. That’s what happens. And for those of you that know what it is, you think I’m saying it wrong. It’s spelled P-H-O, and people are like, ‘It’s pronounced ‘fuh,’ and they get all upset. I don’t care. I’m already eating it. What more do you want from me? I’m guaranteeing there’s nobody in Saigon right now going, ‘It’s pronounced ‘meatball sandwich,’ don’t be culturally insensitive.’ So I’m going to continue to support the Vietnamese community by eating phở all the time instead of just correcting people’s pronunciation of it.”

Richard Pryor on Setting Himself Ablaze

“When that fire hit your ass, it will sober your ass up quick! I saw something, I went, ‘Well, that’s a pretty blue. You know what? That looks like... FIRE!’ Fire is inspirational. They should use it in the Olympics because I ran the 100 in 4.3.

Jimmy Carr on Food

“I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but if you took all the money that we in the West spend on food in one week, you could feed the developing world for a year. I’m not sure about you, but I think we’re being overcharged on groceries.”

Greg Giraldo on Kids

Jim Gaffigan on ‘Dateline’

“At one point, Dateline just went all in on murder. And it’s usually spousal murder. If you watch Dateline, it appears that most marriages end in murder. Every episode starts the same, ‘They had the perfect marriage.’ But you know someone’s getting killed — a husband, a wife. Sometimes, they get someone else to kill their spouse, which seems impersonal. You took a vow, do it yourself!”
