George Carlin - 06/22/08 Answered

For those that are familiar with him and his comedy:

Carlin, who had a history of heart trouble, went into St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica on Sunday afternoon complaining of chest pain and died later that evening, said his publicist, Jeff Abraham. He had performed as recently as last weekend at the Orleans Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas. He was 71....

Man he was funny! I will miss his irreverent approach to humor.

I saw this on the news last night at like 11:00 or something. R.I.P. George Carlin.

. Wherever he is now, I hope he has a place for his stuff. Tater Tits forever!

I'm gutted at this news... what a way to start the week... RIP George and I hope he has the 7 words you cant say to americans on his headstone.

I bet my friends Brad and Jamie are really upset about this. They both look up to the guy. He had a good run, though! That's for sure!

Dang. He was hilarious. Now I'll have to watch someone else.
