I'll give him the seven word salute later.

RIP, dude, you gave us many laughs. Hated your politics, though.

I always thought he was funny. I hardly ever take a trip, packing my "stuff" and getting there and trying to figure out where to put my "stuff" when somebody else's "stuff" is already there......well, you'd have to remember this from one of his performances to know what I'm talking about.

Anyway, RIP, Mr. Carlin.

ET breaks the news that comedian George Carlin has died from heart failure. The man who made famous the “seven words you can never say on television” passed away at 5:55 p.m. Sunday at Saint John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, his longtime publicist said. He was 71.

Carlin, who has had several heart attacks and a history of cardiac issues, went into the hospital this afternoon after complaining of heart problems.

A damn shame. His “Trippy Hippy Dippy Weatherman” was one of my favorites. His “Class Clown” was the first adult comedy show that my parents allowed me to watch when it was on HBO.

A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it. You can see that when you're taking off in an airplane. You look down, you see everybody's got a little pile of stuff. All the little piles of stuff. And when you leave your house, you gotta lock it up. Wouldn't want somebody to come by and take some of your stuff. They always take the good stuff. They never bother with that crap you're saving. All they want is the shiny stuff. That's what your house is, a place to keep your stuff while you go out and get...more stuff!

Sometimes you gotta move, gotta get a bigger house. Why? No room for your stuff anymore. Did you ever notice when you go to somebody else's house, you never quite feel a hundred percent at home? You know why? No room for your stuff. Somebody else's stuff is all over the goddamn place! And if you stay overnight, unexpectedly, they give you a little bedroom to sleep in. Bedroom they haven't used in about eleven years. Someone died in it, eleven years ago. And they haven't moved any of his stuff! Right next to the bed there's usually a dresser or a bureau of some kind, and there's NO ROOM for your stuff on it. Somebody else's s--t is on the dresser.

Have you noticed that their stuff is s--t and your s--t is stuff? God! And you say, "Get that s--t offa there and let me put my stuff down!"

And through our tears of grief, let us endeavor to never forget the flatulent hilarity that ensued each time George graced us with his presence. Surely the Seraphim themselves are pulling upon his finger at this very moment.

Saw George live at the Circle Star (San Carlos, CA) in the early 70’s. He walks to center stage (it was a round revolving stage) and after all the cheering and whistles settle down, he is hit by a single spotlight. The very first thing out of George’s mouth was: “Did ya ever notice how your own farts don’t smell bad??” the place went crazy...

He used to do...

“IN THE NEWS”

A football team died today in sudden death overtime.

Scientists have discovered a disease that has no known symptoms. It is impossible to detect and there’s no known cure. Fortunately no cases have been reported thus far.

A man was arrested today for trying to use food stamps to mail a watermelon.

The FDA announce today that saliva causes stomach cancer. However, only when swallowed in small amounts over a long period of time.

And finally, a psychiatrist has discovered a cure for apathy. However, no one is paying any attention to it.

Me too!!! Especially when they brought some really big grins and knowing smiles to one's face over so many years, even decades... He sure never hesitated to cut loose with the vulgarity.

But what the heck? Just like abject lying is protected political speech, vulgarity is protected artistic speech! Long live the ten commandments and the ten amendments!!!

I am a major Carlos Mencia fan, and you can definately see Carlin's influence on Mencia's work.

Another good thing about Carlin is that, since he grew up in upper Manhattan, he was a New York Giants fan. When they moved to San Francisco, he became a Mets fan.
