George Carlin Is Dead



I'm happy that his first three heart attacks didn't kill him.

I was actually able to see him do standup in person a couple times.

I'm not qualified to summarize, comment, etc. on his career, his comedy, his astute social observations, etc.

I will say this: no one one told the joke better than he in The Aristocrats.

May his soul soar heavenward, and get stuck on a roof of his own choosing.

We're losing all the good ones.

At first I thought the Twitter thing was utter nonsense. Then as you kept twittering I sort of found myself liking it more. Now I've determined that its sole purpose was to find its way to you so that you could make me laugh.

God bless Twitter.

Oh, and Carlin, too.

He was the first comedian I ever busted a gut on.

I forgot about how great he was in The Aristocrats.

And may Joe Pesci answer all of his prayers before he is moved from the desktop purgatory to the trashcan, and then emptied. You have 6 weeks, Joe.

RIP, man. You earned it.

Does anyone remember Cardinal Carlin the I in Dogma? Brilliant casting.
