"Pack your shit, folks. We're going away. And we won't leave much of a trace, either. Thank God for that. Maybe a little styrofoam. Maybe. The planet will be here and we'll be long gone. Just another failed mutation. Just another closed-end biological mistake. An evolutionary cul-de-sac. The planet will shake us off like a bad case of fleas. A surface nuisance."—George Carlin on "saving the planet"
"No more ashes, no more sackclothNearly three billion hunks of well-done steak!"
And an armband made of black cloth
Will some day never more adorn a sleeve.
For if the bomb that drops on you
Gets your friends and neighbours too,
There'll be nobody left behind to grieve!
And we will all bake together when we bake.
There'll be nobody present at the wake.
With complete participation
In that grand incineration,
—Tom Lehrer, "We Will All Go Together When We Go"
