George Carlin, 1937-2008

I'm a huge fan of standup comedy, so I was very saddened this morning to read that the iconoclastic but amazingly talented (and brilliantly funny) George Carlin died yesterday at the age of 71: Carlin will forever be known for his routine on the "Seven words you can't say on television" (Shit, Fuck, Piss, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker and Tits--Amazing, I still remember them off the top of my head), but he had so many other brilliant routines.

The world today is a less funny place than it was yesterday..................
