RIP, George!!

Recommended Posts

I found out this AM that George Carlin died yesterday at the age of 71 from a heart attack. I know that his form of comedy rubs a lot of people the wrong way, BUT I have been watching him perform on TV for the past 40 odd years and think he deserves a few accolades and RIP's from those of us who did like him. He certainly was controversial but then again so were/are Richard Prior, Robin Williams, Lewis Black, Lenny Bruce, and a slew of other comedians who all deserve the label: comic genius. Just my thoughts and opinion. George MADE ME LAUGH and that's something I thank him for. May you Rest In Peace, George!

I really liked his comedy, plus in one of his books he had a great quote about my Oakland Raiders.  I don't remeber what it was exactly but even if I did it couldn't be repeated here.

R.I.P, George.

George Carlin is one my personal heroes.  I look at his comedy this way.....  You'll laugh until he makes you think.

I saw him in concert years ago.  He was fantastic.  I will miss him. :'(

Mom called me and woke me up way too early this morning to tell me. The news said he went in to the hospital with chest pains and died there later that day. Makes me wonder how serious  they took him if he just died in the ER when going in conscious.

I liked his humor a lot when I was younger, and still like it today. Smart man (why do we drive on a parkway and park in a driveway?) and he will be missed.

That's not very likely, based on his personal belief about heaven. I have nothing against him personally, I have laughed at lot of his jokes, but based on his own words, heaven would seem to be a longshot.

Politics, Religion, S e x, Ex-Member, Glam Shots, Competitors Websites, and How Do You Fish A Senko?.

Saw him many, many times. His outlooks on life mostly made me who I am today.

So long my friend.

Boarding Official:  We will now begin getting on the plane.

George:  Screw that.  I'm getting IN the plane.  Let Evel Knievel get ON the plane.
