What goes with vicodin, red or white?
That explains his horrible rant in Vegas a few weeks ago.
I really expected to see the post, "Carlin enters Re-hab, again."
What kind of wine goes with Captain Crunch?
Dude has seriously stopped being funny for, oh, 30 years.
Let's hope and pray for a speedy and painless recovery for Mr. Carlin.
I'll pray for Carlin. Vicodin addiction is an incidious addiction. I'm posting this before I read the rest of the comments on this thread which I'm hoping will be as compassionate as those that were posted for Rush.
One extremely weird dude... But I hope the best recovery.
For it? I thought most people go there because of it. Free wine for hobos at the rehab center! Yippee!
Get well soon, George.
Here's wishing him a speedy recovery. He's given me a lot of laughs over the years.
Knowing how Carlin respects Free Speech, he would approve of anything that is said here.
Can he take his stuff with him? ;)
My brother died of cancer at the age of 42. Whenever I see Carlin I think of those days. He's not longer as funny, he just seems bitter. I think it had something to do with his own wife's death. About eight years ago I remember seeing him get a comedy award and his speech was all about his wife, how she stood by him all those lean years. She was alive then, and she was beautiful. I think he's just a very sad man now trying to cover up his pain.
If nothing else, it's something most of us can relate to.
This relates back to that Vegas show two weeks ago where he told an audience member to "xxxx" him and insulted big-money corporate Vegas (the people paying his salary), along with inviting women in the audience to kill themselves.
Go to rehab and all is forgiven.

Caustic comic George Carlin entering drug rehab facility
LOS ANGELES - George Carlin is entering a drug rehabilitation facility to shake his dependence on wine and a painkiller.
"I'm going into rehab because I use too much wine and Vicodin," the 67-year-old Carlin said in a statement released Monday by his publicist Jeff Abraham. "No one told me I needed this. I recognized the problem and took the step myself."
The name and location of the facility wasn't disclosed,
Carlin, who performs his standup comedy in Las Vegas showrooms and is the author of the best-selling "When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?" on Hyperion Books, said he's never been treated in a rehabilitation facility.
"I know it isn't easy, but I'm highly motivated, and will do whatever's needed," Carlin said in the statement. "My levels of use are nowhere near the worst you hear about these days. I could easily have continued functioning at a good level for awhile, but my use would have progressed.
"I would have been in deeper trouble and I didn't want to tolerate that."
His acting credits include "With Six You Get Eggroll," "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey" and "Jersey Girl" with Ben Affleck.
