george carlin“Lying there in New York Hospital, my first definitive act on this planet was to vomit. And vomit and vomit and vomit. For the first four weeks of my life I lived to projectile vomit. My mother later told me with great pride: ‘They would feed you and you would shoot formula clear across the room. You couldn’t keep anything down.’ And I still can’t. This remarkable inability to hold anything back and to spew it across a public space has served me well my whole life.”

–George Carlin in “Last Words” (2009).
