    Post Sad News

    George Carlin passed on yesterday.
    I can't find the words for the way this man's humor touched my life.
    He could find humor in just about anything.
    His legend will live on and on.
    Happy Trails George.
    Good life to you in The Summerland.

    I grew up loving his comedy. His "Hippie Dippie Weatherman" that he performed on Laugh-In used to lave my dad rolling on the floor. He was insightful, brash, crude, and many times he made me squirm with the things he said - but I never missed an HBO special. I only hope that he now sees that there was a God watching over him.

    I can just imagine the meeting between God and Carlin.
    God: Hello George.
    Carlin: Oh jeeze, I'm a little embarrassed.

    LOL....I love your version of their meeting MTJ, I literally laughed out loud cause I can so picture it being exactly like that! I didnt even know he passed on until I got to work this morning, but my co-workers, people whom I thought for sure would have LOVED his comedy actually disliked him. It's sad news to me though.

    It's hard to imagine that there are people out there who dislike Carlin.
    I have to wonder about the quality of their sense of humor.

    71 is so young! He is/was/will always be one of my favorites. He could swear with the best of them but he brought a vocabulary to his comedy that none do. He was a bright, brilliant guy.

    RIP George.

    I loved him, sometimes he made me uncomfortable, but most of the time he made me laugh.
    His role in Dogma was perfect for him.

    My kids loved him on "Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends" as Mr. Conductor and the voice of Fillmore in "Cars".

    He will be missed.

    Since I didn't grow up here in the States I wasn't that familiar with his comedy. But I knew him from watching Thomas the Tank Engine with my kids. He was the Little Conductor on there and they loved him.
