Humour: George Carlin's Rules for 2006 - Corrected!
Submitted by Robert on Wed, 2006-03-22 19:59
Actually, George Carlin didn’t write the rules that were originally posted here. It has been pointed out to me that Bill Maher invented the "New Rules" comic device. These particular rules aired on Bill's Real Time program. It aired on HBO between March and September 2005.
You can actually read Bill's rules "New Rules" here.
You can read the rules that used to be posted here at this website.
And well you should read them, because there are some bloody funny ones there. But don't take my word for it, I've posted by favourite rules below.
All that remains is to offer a red-faced mea culpa. I offer my apologies to Bill Maher and George Carlin for misattributing their work and for posting something without checking the copyright issues around it. I shall now go and eat some boiled Brussels sprouts as punishment.
Let this be a lesson to the rest of you. Never believe any E-mail you receive from an Australian. Those bloody sheep-shagging sons’s of sheep-rustlers couldn't lie straight in bed.
My favourite Bill Maher's rules for 2006:
New Rule: Ladies, leave your eyebrows alone.
New Rule: There's no such thing as flavored water.
New Rule: The more complicated the Starbucks order, the bigger the asshole.
New Rule: Just because your tattoo has Chinese characters in it doesn't make you spiritual. It's right above the crack of your ass. And it translates to "beef with broccoli." The last time you did anything spiritual, you were praying to God you weren't pregnant. You're not spiritual. You're just high.
New Rule: When I ask how old your toddler is, I don't need to know in months. "27 Months." "He's two," will do just fine. He's not a cheese. And I didn't really care in the first place.
