A Bit of Bill Hicks.

on another journal i mentioned bill hicks, and it occurs to me that, you know, some people don't know the joy that was hicks.

so, he's a bit of transcript from a gig he did in the dominion theatre, london:

Bush tried to buy votes towards the end of the election. Goes around, you know, selling weapons to everyone, getting that military industrial complex vote happening for him. Sold 160 fighter jets to Korea and then 240 tanks to Kuwait and then goes around making speeches why he should be Commander-in-Chief because, "We still live in a dangerous world."

Thanks to you, you fucker!

What are you doing? Last week Kuwaitis had nothing but rocks!

They're arming the fucking world man. You know we armed Iraq. I wondered about that too, you know during the Persian Gulf war those intelligence reports would come out:

"Iraq: incredible weapons - incredible weapons."

How do you know that?

"Uh, well... We looked at the receipts."

"Ah but as soon as that cheque clears, we're going in."

"What time's the bank open? 8? We're going in at 9."

"We're going in for God and country and democracy and here's a foetus and he's a Hitler. Whatever you fucking need, let's go. Get motivated behind this, let's go!"
