George Carlin passed away

George Carlin is one of my favorite stand-up comedians. I know he's good because I've stolen his jokes and passed them off as mine and none of them have ever failed. Some have described him as an "Anti-Establishment icon", which is definitely true, and a title he would carry proudly, but I prefer to remember him as a master of wit, sarcasm, and good ole toilet humor. He and his HBO specials will surely be missed.

A lot of the press releases containing the news of his death noted that he is famous for his Seven Words routine, but as a sports fan, my favorite is definitely his hilarious take on the differences between baseball and football:


  1. damn I was just listening to one of his CDs on my flight home too

  2. well done man. for a man of his age, he sure had a lot to say that young people like us were willing to listen to.
