He died 11 years ago today. Normally biographical or anecdotal info would follow, but instead i direct you to Lisa Snellings' Slaughterhouse Studio, where you can learn or think about Bill, and do some good in the process!
Bill Hicks, from Wikiquote:
"Dinosaur fossils? God put those there to test our faith." Thank God I'm strapped in right now here man. I think God put you here to test my faith, Dude. You believe that? "Uh huh." Does that trouble anyone here? The idea that God.. might be...fuckin' with our heads? I have trouble sleeping with that knowledge. Some prankster God running around: "Hu hu ho. We will see who believes in me now, ha HA."
