Seinfeld on Carlin

Via Daring Fireball, Jerry Seinfeld had this to say about George Carlin:

His performing voice, even laced with profanity, always sounded as if he were trying to amuse a child. It was like the naughtiest, most fun grown-up you ever met was reading you a bedtime story.

One of the great unexpected pleasures of fatherhood has been learning that George Carlin is the narrator for all of the Thomas the Tank Engine videos. Makes them a hell of a lot more fun to watch.

(I guess Seinfeld doesn’t watch Thomas with his kid; nor Gruber for that matter.)
