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 hear ya. When I was a kid I thought that seven taboo word thing was a funny skit. Since then I’ve kindof soured on the vulgarity used to get laughs.
Carlin was a funny guy. I didn’t agree with everything he did, but you are right. It is a free speach issue, I just wish folks would use more self-restraint.
The funniest routines I’ve seen have no vulgarity. I’m not saying vulgarity can’t be funny, but I dearly love the twist on everyday things that turn out being hilarious without the down side.
Carlin will be missed. When I think of him I can’t help but think of Carson. Can’t tell you how much I miss being able to tune in at 11:30 to see guys like George Burns, Bob Hope, George Gobel, Dean Martin... you know the folks.
That’s life bud. You take care.

What the %$^ &@## is going on. One of my &%$$#@* favorite laugh bringers has passed. It brings me to #$#%&&++ tears, just like his jokes did when they made me laugh so ##$@)(& hard. He will be sorely fu__ing missed.
