WARNING! EXPLICIT CONTENT FOLLOWS - I'M POSTING GEORGE CARLIN'S SEVEN WORDS YOU CAN'T SAY ON TELEVISION!
George Carlin has passed away at age 71. He died last night at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica after being admitted for chest pains.
For those of you who came of age in the sixties and seventies like me, George Carlin was our comedic anti-hero. A foul mouthed but brilliant defier of "Middle America" and one of the funniest men who ever turned a stage blue.
This is the man who told us the "Seven Words You Can't Say on Television", this is the man who thumbed his nose at convention with his tongue firmly in cheek. This is the man who made us laugh at our middle class "morals", who made us think and who always kept us up to date on the silliest pop culture and current events. He made counterculture his own and he did it with humor and insight.
Farewell, George - I hope you're turning the air blue in the great cosmic joke we call the Universe!
