I wonder which came first: skilled workers or unskilled? No one decided. I figure, originally, all we had was workers. And then they decided, "This is hard!" And they call themselves skilled! Then someone else came along that couldn't do it. Poor unskilled son of a bitch. They moved right past his ass. He was just a landing area.

Very funny comedy from the guy who does it best. Done in 1978, but the only thing dated about it are his pants. Famous 7 words you can't say on television bit (although some of them you can now....thanks to NYPD Blue) went on to become an underground hit for Blink 182. Also great pieces about the measures of time....and flatulence. Yes George, we did "live to see it"....thank goodness.
Here's to the "One cheek sneak."
