A legend leaves us

We start the week off by bidding a fond farewell to one of the all time virtuosos of stand-up comedy — comedian George Carlin died Sunday of heart failure.  He was 71.

Carlin left us with some classic routines, most notably “7 Words You Can Never Say On TV” which actually landed him in jail in 1972 after performing it at a show in Milwaukee. George had a very creative mind and in spite of the risque material he had a likable, kidlike quality about him. Yes I know he was very liberal but how can we not love a guy who took it upon himself to categorize the different degrees of flatulence? The man was a genius.

Take care up there, George… and by the way, is it really Alanis Morissette? Just wondering.

Here’s a clip of Carlin in action [warning — some language here so get the crumbcrunchers out of earshot]:
