What would Bill Hicks be doing if he was alive today?
Scratching at the inside of his coffin.
What would he think of this world right now?
He was a smoker, he’d have died again – and yet again.
Wouldn’t his refreshing take make the world of difference?
You can get cod-philosophy anywhere and everywhere whether you
fucking ask for it or not. There’s a lot of it hiding under the green
fug of smoke that pours out of Joe Rogan’s gob and calls itself
a podcast. (I have it on absolutely no good authority whatsoever
that Joe Rogan only gets off when a Bill Hicks routine is playing on
his screen– but he rubs himself up and down with the DVD cover of
old episodes of Fear Factor to get the party started).
Bill Hicks was better than Denis Leary.
But which one is alive today?
Bill Hicks had a big bag of tricks.
He died lonely and alone and his anger only sped up his death.
