20. “Men are from Earth. Women are from Earth. Deal with it.”
GEORGE CARLIN DID NOT say this.
“Men are from Earth. Women are from Earth. Deal with it.”
(or “Men are from Earth. Women are from Earth. End of story.”)
It’s hard to say who came up with this line first. I’ve seen more than one book with this title, or some variation of it. Given how popular John Gray’s “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus” book was in the ’90s, it’s not really too surprising that multiple people would come up with this satirical line. I’ve found no less than five different authors who’ve written books using this line or a variant as the book’s title. I also found a 1996 liquor ad that uses the line.
In any case, the line doesn’t show up on any of Carlin’s albums, HBO specials, or books. Also, you can find plenty of earlier instances of the line existing before the Carlin misattributions started.
