RIP George Carlin

Sadly, George Carlin has died at age 71. I’ve referenced him on this blog many times. He has been my favorite comedian for something like 25 years or so. I still have one of his day calendars sitting to the right of my desk. His odd outlook on life has affected the way I think, and even my father referenced him in his suicide note. On hearing the news that he had died, the expletive that ran through my head was “shit piss fuck cunt cocksucker mother fucker tits.” Plus “fart turd and twat.”

Goodbye George. You will be missed.

    Some of the most memorable posts for me on EGC in the last few years were the ones in which you quoted from your George Carlin quote-a-day calendar.

    I went out and bought that George Carlin calendar on clearance for a dollar in like March or April of that year, and did the same thing again the year following. I still enjoy very much pulling random quotes from both calendars nearly every day, even though I’ve had them for years. I bet they will still make me laugh a decade from now.

    I have his “When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops” audiobook, one of a handful things I’ve bought on the iTunes store (I removed the DRM shortly after by the “burn to CD and reimport” method.) I probably know the thing by heart by now, having listened to it a dozen times easy. It doesn’t make the jokes any less funny.
