It's a sad day. Here's to one of the best comedians of the last half-century. I'll raise one tonight for you, old man!

Damn.

Yeah, not the story I expected to see when I woke up. The guy was awsome, I think he might have been the best.

Thanks for ruining my evening man


Last time I observed a minute of silence was for Johnny cash.. and last time before that was John Lee Hooker.

George gets 5 mins and at least 3 home brews... He was a genius and the world is a poorer place for the loss of him.

I wonder what the forum will do with the 7 dirty words in one string...

He could bring tears to your eyes. I loved the way he looked at the English language and wondered why many of them seemed to have an opposite meaning.

He's seemed very bitter though in his last few years, but he cuts through the crap pretty quick.

R.I.P. George!

He'll certainly be missed here as well. For quite a long time, he was definitely my favorite comedian. I even have one or two of his books, though his written word isn't quite the same without his voice and attitude.

I am going to brew seven beers in his honor. Those will be their names.

We saw a Carlin performance, must have been a bit more than seven years ago. Valentine's Day weekend, up in Burlington. That was the weekend I proposed to The (Now) Wife. Ain't I a romantic!
