Award-winning comedian George Carlin dies

We'll miss you.

Man, what a sad way to start a Monday.

Yeah, when I saw the news I said, "Sh!t, p!ss, f@ck, c@nt, c@cks@cker, m@therf@cker, t!ts !!!!!" out of homage.

I really liked him. I enjoyed his HBO specials and books.

I thought he was younger than that. My dad (73) will be back from a Job in the Carribean at the end of this week.

Yes, sad indeed. My favorite routine was "icebox man" and the famous meat-cake.

I hear ya fred, my dad is 74, but AFAIK, he didn't do anywhere near the amount of cocaine and speed that George did, so hopefully our dads will be around a good long time.

Today is the first time that I've honestly feel the loss for some I've never meet ... almost as if I've lost a dear close friend.
He'll be missed.

I agree. My wife almost cried when I told her. \:\(

I remember just a few months ago listening to him do an interview with Sonny Fox on XM Comedy. Very neat to hear about his life, and not just the comedy side of him. They ended the show by Sonny asking him what he'd like his epitaph to say...

"Where did he go? He was just here!"
