Welcome to the 5th Humormeister's Forum edition
On Sunday, June 23, 2008, the world lost its 'star' Humorist of observational humor.
George Carlin's humor was quirky, tamely vicious, sharp acid tongued, political and apolitical, but certainly never dull.
In a tribute to this outstanding humorist, I wanted to share some of Carlin's quotes and quips with you.

I have as much authority as the pope. I just don't have as many people who believe it.
