|George Denis Patrick Carlin (1937-2008)|
"I saw a slogan on a guys car that said 'Proud to be an American' and I thought 'What the fuck does that mean?' I'm fully Irish, and when I was a kid I would go to the St Patrick's Day parade and they sold a button that said 'Proud to be Irish', but I knew that on Columbus day they sold the same button only it said 'Proud to be Italian', then came Black Pride, and Puerto Rican Pride. And I could never understand national or ethnic pride, because to me Pride should be reserved for something you achieve on your own.
Being Irish isn't a skill, it's a fucking genetic accident.
You wouldn't be proud to be 5'11". You wouldn't be proud to have a pre-disposition for colon cancer."
Käykö ylpeys lankeemuksen edellä? Onko homous saavutus? Onko joku sateenkaari yhtään sen kummempi kuin Hitlerin aikoinaan käyttämä kolmio? No, joka tapauksessa "In Kenneth Liukkonen, Jani Toivola and Pekka Haavisto I trust".
