R.I.P George Carlin

George Carlin

Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker, and Tits. This series of words were uttered nonchalantly on TV one fine day in the summer of 1972. As one would expect, it caused an uproar which eventually led to an arrested and a court ruling which probably defined the baseline for TV cencorship for the next 2 decades or so. George Carlin broke the mold in more ways than one.

Arguably one of the best comedians of all time, George Carlin passed away on Sunday afternoon of heart failure. He was 71 and still funny as hell. He was admitted into hospital just hours earlier after complaining of chest pains. He will be missed.

He was very influential to me. Both in they way I think and how my sense of humor developed. Not to say that I seriously believed in what he says. He’s a comedian and only an idiot would take a comedian so seriously. But he does make me think and question certain things. He’s also funny as hell. He was ahead of his time and even though he didn’t really believed in an afterlife, I’m sure he watching down (or up) on us and smiling….while showing us the finger.

It’s like my grandpa use to say……”I’m heading upstairs to fuck your grandma”…….Grandpa was an honest man, he wasn’t about to bullshit a 4 year-old

The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done

Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday

Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?
