I can never remember. Is it white or red with Vicodan?
2004-12-27 04:26:10 PM  
Maybe this isn't the best time to announce my crippling Percodan/Mountain Dew habit.
2004-12-27 04:27:49 PM  
does this mean he's not going to be as funny once he gets out?

and why should 'questioning the intellect of those who visit Vegas' cause a stir? a little too close to the truth?

These are orange. There will be other colors later.

Hmmm...a clean and sober George Carlin....can anyone say Steven Wright?
2004-12-27 05:08:21 PM  
Look at what happened to Robin Williams after he sobered up.

Rehab is for quitters.

How many of the seven words you can't say on television does Fark filter?

It's ok man. Just take care of yourself and all will be well.

shiat, Piss, fark, coont, Cocksucker, Motherfarker, and Tits
2004-12-27 07:16:14 PM  
heh. four.
2004-12-27 07:17:55 PM  
Well, shiat, that pisses me off. What's wrong with that stupid coont? That cocksucker already had an addiction problem, and he's messing around with Vicodin? Dumb motherfarker, he gets on my tits.

Not really. Hope he gets well soon.

Ack, seems I forgot an obvious one. What the fark?
2004-12-27 08:30:58 PM  

I just paid 340 bucks through a ticket broker for choice seats to his show here in San Antonio on January 14th.

2004-12-28 12:03:34 AM  
You guys forgot the worst word of them all:


Vintage Carlin. God bless him, and may ending his vicodin habit make him even more bitter (I know it did me!)
2004-12-28 12:03:35 AM  
2004-12-28 12:05:13 AM  
Get better soon George.
2004-12-28 12:05:36 AM  
uhhh can you say riiiight?
2004-12-28 12:07:07 AM  
how much vicodin is considered "bad"?

/me is on them after surgery, little yellow ones, 10/175 i think.
2004-12-28 12:08:51 AM  
Hang in there GC. One of the best comics alive.
2004-12-28 12:09:07 AM  
According to media accounts of the incident, Carlin's bit about "moronic" Vegas tourists touched off a bitter, profane exchange with members of the audience, including one woman who shouted "Stop degrading us."

Audience= Dumb farks

2004-12-28 12:10:05 AM  
whats the problem here?
2004-12-28 12:13:17 AM  
So what does Vicodin DO to you exactly? And for the record, anyone who knows anything about Carlin's material would have stayed the fark away from his show if they couldn't handle a little degradation.
2004-12-28 12:13:41 AM  
Get well soon, George.

/submitted this with a funnier headline
2004-12-28 12:14:43 AM  
What a joke.

People are such pussies these days.

Drugs are for the weak.
Religion is for the weak.
Failure is for the weak.
2004-12-28 12:14:54 AM  
smart enough to stop a hobby before it becomes an addiction. red wine is good for your heart though right?
2004-12-28 12:15:04 AM  
2004-12-28 12:15:23 AM  

Use them only when you are in pain. Stop using them when you start to feel better. Vicodin works great, especially when you have had major surgery, but it is addictive if abused. Good thing for me it upset my stomach quite a bit after a while. Made it easy to stop.
2004-12-28 12:15:32 AM  
heretik: So what does Vicodin DO to you exactly?

pain killer
2004-12-28 12:15:58 AM  
A rather lackluster headline effort submitted. Comon mods, nobody took a better crack at it than this?

/couldn't do better
//couldn't mod better
2004-12-28 12:16:16 AM  
Imagine the material he'll come up with by goin thru the rehab experience.

At least he's smart. He's not a stupid celebrity, very realistic man.
2004-12-28 12:17:07 AM  
I submitted this with a better GOD-F%&*ing-D@#N Head-F%&*ING-Line
2004-12-28 12:17:22 AM  
I've only taken vicodin once. I took two and washed them down with a bottle of champagne. In an unexpected twist - that combo really impaired my driving ability.

Get well Mr. Carlin. You kill me.
2004-12-28 12:18:08 AM  
What's the big deal? I've been hooked on opiates for years, and don't have a problem.

//dear god, denial
2004-12-28 12:18:31 AM  
Everybody and your your local pharmacist knows that vicodans are traditionally washed down with a few 12 oz tumblers of Captain Morgan's spiced rum. Sheesh.
2004-12-28 12:19:33 AM  
I guess he finally figured out what kind of wine goes well with Captain Crunch.
2004-12-28 12:20:25 AM  
Mealy-mouthed rat bastard can't even handle a handful of vicodan and a few bottles of wine...he's almost ready for my fire!
2004-12-28 12:23:58 AM  
Horray, lizard shiat, fark

Vicadin and a choice red really compliment each other nicely. I had my leg in a cast for nine weeks with a torn achilles tendon, and it hurt like a matterfarmer. Viva la Vicadin! Got me through it, don't touch it now, still snork a lot of red, though. And Carlin rules. Hope things go well for the old grouch.
2004-12-28 12:25:12 AM  
George Carlin ... says he has problem with wine and Vicodin
Recently his problem has been spewing liberal hate at the right side of the political spectrum instead of telling jokes.
2004-12-28 12:25:14 AM  
hang in there George - you got soul buddy,,,,
2004-12-28 12:25:33 AM  
Vicodin is some good shiat. I had my appendix removed recently, and vicodin took away all of the pain. Still have 20 or so lying around here...
2004-12-28 12:26:27 AM  
shouldnt this be an "obvious" tag????

How does one get addicted to a painkiller that is scripted out? Don't they usually give you only enough to last maybe a week.
2004-12-28 12:27:49 AM  
I can't say that I'm surprised, but good luck George. We need you.
