    Very shitty day.


    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Comedian George Carlin, a counter-culture hero famed for his routines about drugs and dirty words, died of heart failure at a Los Angeles-area hospital on Sunday, a spokesman said. He was 71.

    damn that really sucks. he was not only damn funny, he made a crap load of sense. it took me many years to appreciate his humor and now it seems he maybe the last guy to really tell it like it is without fear of corporations, media giants and government squashing his voice. You may not see it right now, but the loss of his voice will impact us greatly.

    rip George.

    WOW that is a huge downer..... my old man sat me down when i was 12 yrs old and made me watch Carlin at Carnagy(or however u spell it shit its 3:35 am) and from that day forward I was hooked on his humor, seen every movie he was in and every stand up he did. The world of comedy looses yet another great one.

    I'd say RIP, but something tells me he wouldn't appreciate that.

    Not unlike Richard Pryor, he was one of those guys who did the TV circuit in the early-mid 60's as a harmless, white bread type of comedian. Late 60's and early 70's come around and he grows his hair long and starts to freak out the clean cut contingency by becoming the voice of the voiceless. One hell of a man. Even after he fell into his old bitter man routine in the last 10-15 years, his jokes remained somehow far more cogent than most comedians. He will be missed.

    This is a huge bummer. I still like the story about how a young Carlin was at a Lenny Bruce show where Lenny was arrested for obscenity, Carlin made a fuss and when asked by the cops to show ID, he refused and was arrested. Rode in the paddywagon with Lenny Bruce to jail.

    Major bummer.

    THIS IS SO FUCKING(yes im cursing now) SAD! Its so unfair because Im just a new fan of him and now hes gone. I will always remember this guy from his "10 commandments" to "screw god" acts. I havent found any comic as powerful and as real as him so its really such a pity.

    "Here's another question I've been pondering -- what is all this shit about angels? Have you heard this? Three out of four people belive in angels. Are you fucking stupid? Has everybody lost their mind? You know what I think it is? I think it's a massive, collective, psychotic chemical flashback for all the drugs smoked, swallowed, shot, and obsorbed rectally by all Americans from 1960 to 1990. Thirty years of street drugs will get you some fucking angels, my friend!"

    If you want as powerful and real, try Bill Hicks.

    I've seen George perform 3 times and wish more than anything I was alive in the 60's to see his live shows then. I still have his old cassette tapes and the shirt he signed for me.

    "Kiss her where it smells, take her to New Jersey!"

    I for one will miss him terribly. RIP

    I hope this isn't to much.. but I just realized it's post #50 for me and I would like to dedicate it to Mr. Carlin.

    Some of the Funniest things he said.

    1. When cheese gets it's picture taken, what does it say?

    2. When someone asks you, A penny for your thoughts, and you put your two cents in, what happens to the other penny?

    3. If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted?

    4. When someone is impatient and says, "I haven't got all day," I always wonder, How can that be? How can you not have all day?

    5. I thought about how mothers feed their babies with tiny little spoons and forks so I wondered, what do Chinese mothers use? Toothpicks?

    6. If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

    7. Is a vegetarian permitted to eat animal crackers?

    8. What if there were no hypothetical questions?

    9. Frisbeetarianism is the belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the roof and gets stuck.

    10. Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations. When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong.

    11. 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.

    12. Before they invented drawing boards, what did they go back to?

    13. Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.

    14. Why do croutons come in airtight packages? It's just stale bread to begin with.

    15. I have as much authority as the Pope, I just don't have as many people who believe it.

    16. May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.

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

    18. If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why is it still #2?

    19. I think it would be interesting if old people got anti-Alzheimer's disease where they slowly began to recover other people's lost memories.

    20. Electricity is really just organized lightning.

    21. Women like silent men, they think they're listening.

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

    23. Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it.

    24. If all the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting?

    25. 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?

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

    27. I recently went to a new doctor and noticed he was located in something called the Professional Building. I felt better right away.

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

    29. I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.

    30. There's no present. There's only the immediate future and the recent past.

    31. At a formal dinner party, the person nearest death should always be seated closest to the bathroom.

    32. As a matter of principle, I never attend the first annual anything.

    33. The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.

    34. Death is caused by swallowing small amounts of saliva over a long period of time.

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

    36. I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately.

    37. The only good thing ever to come out of religion was the music.

    38. Religion convinced the world that there's an invisible man in the sky who watches everything you do. And there's 10 things he doesn't want you to do or else you'll go to a burning place with a lake of fire until the end of eternity. But he loves you! ...And he needs money! He's all powerful, but he can't handle money!

    39. This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen.

    He was a comedic god.

    One of the few who really speaks his mind and doesn't give a shit
    what people think.

    I really liked how he actually spoke about how fucked up a country
    America really is.
