R.I.P George Carlin

As most of you know, George Carlin passed away a few days ago.  He was an extraordinarily talented comedian who had one of the dirtiest mouths I’ve ever seen.

He was irreverent, political, and fearless.  Carlin was one of the few comedians out there who seriously didn’t seem to care who he offended, and yet people loved him.  The internet is abuzz with tributes to him, most of them talking about the 7 Words you Can Never Say on Television.  This routine, (embedded below since it’s just THAT popular) apparently led to a major Court ruling on broadcast standards.

Carlin was the inspiration for many of the new generation of comedians.  His dry delivery style is rather hilarious, and I think his loss will definitely be felt for a while.

This has been a tragic month, losing a few respected icons in entertainment and news.
