George Carlin, one of my idols and the funniest comedian to have lived in my lifetime, died yesterday at the age of 71.
His two-CD best-of album was the second (and last, I think) comedy album I had bought. I had lent out my Jerry Seinfeld CD to a friend, who had lost it and eventually just gave me $30 for it, and so I went out and bought George's instead. That CD shaped my sense of humor forever and got me through some pretty rough times (you try finding something to laugh about when you have to share a twin bed with your mother on vacation).
In honor of the great man, I would hereby like to say:
Shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker and tits. I'd like to add also fart, turd, and twat, for completeness' sake.
