George Carlin Remembered

This morning I woke up to sadly discover that the great comedian George Carlin passed away last night, he was 71. He was one of the most influential comics and a genius with words. Carlin had a perfect delivery that was able to take his audience on a roller coaster ride of laughter.





George Carlin was not only carving new joke premises and original structure, but he was also responsible for challenging America's concept of what is considered obscene. He was the topic of a Supreme Court case - FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION v. PACIFICA FOUNDATION, 438 U.S. 726, 98 S.Ct. 3026 (1978). He has an act known in short as "Seven Words," a brilliant word play.



I found this YouTube video of George Carlin performing his historic act. I believe this is the piece that George would like all of us to remember.
