Death of A Comedic Genius - George Carlin

One of my all time favorite comics, George Carlin died yesterday of heart failure. He was 71.

What can be said, George was a genius, a great socio-political satarist and a brilliant student of the english language and its nuances. He was a true comedic trailblazer with his seven words you can't say on television or for that matter in Milwaukee where he was arrested on stage doing the routine at Summerfest.

He is the type of comic that only comes around once in a lifetime. He will be deeply missed.

he made laugh till I cried so many times I can't
remember em all....I loved the one about people
complaining about prisons being built in their backyards.
He said that's the perfect place for em....if someone
breaks out of prison, you think their just gonna hang
around?

Too bad. He sure was one hell of a funny guy, and told it like it was!

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.
