Living in the Material World
Doesn’t every household NEED a flame thrower? Now what kind of uses would our favorite stoner have in mind for this handy tool?
George Carlin has a great bit about flame throwers and who comes up with these types of weapons. His bit is essentially “Gee, I’d like to set those people over there on fire, but I have nothing to do it with… ” George was good for that kind of thinking. 🙂
Today’s title is one of my favorite George Harrison albums. It was released in 1973 and was the follow up album to his first solo album, the HUGE hit “All Things Must Pass.” “Material World” even knocked Paul McCartney’s “Red Rose Speedway” out of the number one album position. I’m sure George liked that! The big hit on the album was “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)” but its the title track, and today’s comic title, that I think is the best one on the album. There’s a line that goes like this “Use my body like a car, Taking me both near and far..” Love that one.
BTW, George Harrison was my first concert I ever attended back in 1973 on his only American tour. Cool way to start my concert going career. (If I’ve mentioned this before… well, excuuuusssse meeeee!) (Steve Marin is on the phone and wants $10 Grand… crap)
