George Carlin, Splenetic Comedian, Dies at 71
one last round of applause..
was that a joke?
I am feeling neither fine nor dandy to hear of his passing.
I took my son to see one of his shows a few years back, and I'm sure he's going to be as unhappy to hear of his passing as I am.
George's penetrating ability to pierce the mindnumbing carbuncles of stupidity that often manifest in everyday speech and sayings will be greatly missed by those of us who love language and who seek truth.
I will miss George Carlin. Saw him do comedy while I was in college. He was a great voice in American social satire.
Inside every cynical person, there is a disappointed idealist.
Please don't ever use the term "piercing carbuncles" again.
So I guess "lancing festering pustules" creates an image I'd better avoid implanting in you mind's eye, also, eh?
If ever a class clown was able to simultaneously talk some damn sense into you, it was George Carlin.
I'm just hearing about this now as I clicked on this thread. What a loss. I'm going to break out the DVD's and pour a 'lil liquor for my homey.
George Carlin had a unique sense of humor and what some would think is bullshit, he made it make sense and funny. He is missed greatly.
