He and Hunter S were my heroes.

Today its like my second father of my personality died.

One of the last great lights of our society went silent today.
We are forever the lesser for it.

My favorite bit from the movies is The Rules of The Road from Jay & Silent Bob.

Getting a bj from Carlin is disgustingly funny.

Like Dirt, Carlin was one of my personality's two fathers. I loved his take on humanity as a cursed institution and his comedic observations that supported that view. To prevent myself from becoming wholeheartedly, cynical I tempered Carlin with the sometimes optimism of another great that passed within the year, Kurt Vonnegut. I liked knowing that guys like this were out there being rascals still. I'll miss you wise fellas.

I can't believe it! I LOVE Carlin. He had a good life though. RIP, or don't if that's how he wants to go!


"Tonight's forecast, DARK! Gradually getting lighter by morning"

"'I am' is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that 'I do' is the longest sentence? "


"Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy."

"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day."


And maybe the most appropriate:

"I'm always relieved when someone is delivering a eulogy and I realize I'm listening to it."

RIP

He had a way of just telling it as it is. he also had a way of saying stuff that deep down someone might be thinking but would never say it out loud.
He is one great comedian

I always enjoyed his comedy. Some good college memories getting drunk with friends and laughing our ass off at his routines.

Is a vegetarian permitted to eat animal crackers?

Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

Well, if crime fighters fight crime and fire fighters fight fire, what do freedom fighters fight? They never mention that part to us, do they?

Why is the man (or woman) who invests all your money called a broker?

Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

Good funny bit...

Dang. Carlin had a knack for showing Americans how stupid we are and making us laugh about it. And every once in a while, someone would think about what he was saying. He shall be missed.

Carlin was a true classic.
I laughed at him because I agreed with him.
And I laughed at him when I didn't agree with him.
His later bits on "America" are some of the truest words ever spoken.
I will miss him for sure.



Words white people use

Happens to be, Openly

James Brown is openly black.
Colin Powell is not openly black, he is openly white,
he just happens to be black.

He will be sorely missed. This country needed him (and other like him) to keep us from getting too full of ourselves

Local tie to Carlin:

Carlin was stationed at Barksdale Air Force Base (Shreveport, La) in the 1950s, serving in the 376th Bomb Wing's 376th Armament and Electronics Maintenance Squadron, and working part-time as a disk jockey at radio station KJOE, whose other staffers included Wolfman Jack.

Exhibiting the rebellious streak that would run through his life, he received three court-martials and numerous disciplinary punishments, according to his official Web site. He received a general discharge in 1957, and 20 years later was able to return to the area to perform at the Municipal Auditorium telling nothing but Barksdale and Shreveport jokes to fill an hour of stage time.

Truth be told, I think 70 to 75 is a pretty good time to check out.

Like my wife tells me, nice people get cancer, assholes die of heart attacks.

Think I'll stick with being an asshole.

"The Hippy-Dippy Weatherman"... George Carlin - loved that guy. Broke a lot of new ground in the world of comedy and free-speech.

I imagine he and Richard Pryor are up in heaven trading some good ones.

He will be missed.

Truth be told, I think 70 to 75 is a pretty good time to check out.
Carlin did a TON of coke during the 70's and even admitted to being coked off his a$$ while hosting the very first episode of SNL back in '75. So 71 in Carlin years would be like 198 in normal years... the moral of the story: Cocaine is a hell of a drug.
