One of the great comedians of the 20th century, George Carlin, has died at the age of 71. Note the subject line is in reference to the seven dirty words you cannot say on television, part of a long running issue with his comedy that resulted in action at the Supreme Court level. He will be missed.

Yes I have heard, such a great comedian gone in his prime....
How unfortunate heard cause of death was heart failure.

.... Thanks for what? And, to be honest, shouldn't this be the one thread you can swear in? I mean, George Carlin spent a lot of time campaigning for free speech...

The thanks was for a post that I deleted that had info on Carlin that Ultimatum's used before I deleted it.
And as for the swearing, it's against the rules in the first place even if Carlin campaigned for free speech and sower constantly doesn't mean we can freely here. We're trying to keep it PG-13 Axel

Axelgear would argue the colour of the sky if you gave him half a chance, anyway I don't think I've ever heard of this guy but I don't think you can say someone's struck down in their prime when they died at 71.
What have you got against intellectual midgets? They're quite smart little guys as far as i can tell.

Not attacking anyone. I was just perplexed. As for swearing, I figure the mods could say "This board contains offensive content", right?

.... Wait, what in blue blazes do you think I was arguing?

Damn. The guy was a comedic genius. Werechicken, Just look up George Carlin on youtube. Especially "George Carlin-7 words you can't say on television".
But...he really isn't safe for work... Just a heads up.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Aww, shame, I just recently discovered George Carlin's standup on Youtube. There just aren't enough cantankerous old comedians around any more :(
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Ah man... I was just watching the "George Carlin Again" DVD the other day. That's very depressing.

To be fair, he was a long-time alcoholic and painkiller abuser (Though he was clean for some years since) and did rant comedy. The guy not living to 80 isn't really surprising.

But you can now get his ringtones! Gggggggggggggg

Anyhow, sounds like he had another haad attack. A G**D*** Major Cadial Infaction!

I wonder where that put him in the Comedian Health Sweepstakes? Did he still lead Richard Prior?

My opinion, Carlin At Carnegie was his best work overall.

At the very least he had a long career.

It's strange really.

I watched a video of him on religion within the last few days.

It's a shame.

One of his best quotes.

He was a great comedian. I didn't like when I first saw him, though, because it was during one of his swearing rants without context, but later on I grew to like him.

Well of course! I've already begun arranging visits to a variety of very interesting roofs to choose from.

If I find one that I like, I expect conversion will proceed shortly afterward.

My condolences go out to his family.  :(

I don't think I've seen his comedy, but it sounds as though I would have enjoyed it. :)

This reminds me of when Rodney Dangerfield died... :(

On HBO2 they had 4 of his comedy shows in a row. I watched 6 hours of George Carlin.
