Bye-Bye, George.

He brought the sharp, true, often sacrilegious funny for a long, long time. He’s probably still bringing it on the other side.

R.I.P., Mr. Carlin.* You were truly one-of-a-kind. Many a comedian has stood on your shoulders.

Here he is doing what is generally considered his most famous bit, The Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television.

And here he is, going for the gusto, taking on God and religion (which he despised, particularly after the death of his first wife in 1997). I wonder if he’s having to answer for any of this stuff now. Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe he’s still telling this same bit on the other side and God is laughing harder than everyone else.

*Thanks for the heads-up, Matt. The whole world, not just me, is holding you right now.

  1. >He got extra blasphemous in his later years but he was always funny. I'll send up a prayer. Or down. Depending on where he landed and where he hoped to go.
