In is honor, one last time :
**** piss **** **** ********** mother****er ****.


Oh and these famous quotes:
Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

A house is just a place to keep your stuff while you go out and get more stuff.

Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer and burn and scream until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you and he needs money.

You know the good part about all those executions in Texas? Fewer Texans.

Reminds me of something my third-grade teacher said to us. She said, “You show me a tropical fruit and I’ll show you a ********** from Guatemala.”

I never ****ed a ten, but one night, I ****ed five twos.

What year did Jesus think it was?

The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse: You cannot post “Thou shalt not steal,” “Thou shalt not commit adultery,” and “Thou shalt not lie” in a building full of lawyers, judges, and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment.

Atheism is a non-prophet organization.

“No comment” is a comment.

If a man smiles all the time, he’s probably selling something that doesn’t work.

The reason they call it the American Dream is because you have to be asleep to believe it.

Carlin is in my top 3 with lewis black and eddie izzard. Sad to see him go. His last set 'it's bad for ya' was as good as any.

R.I.P George.

Bummer. I first saw Carlin live while in University. He did a hilarious show

My favourite bits were:

substituting the word duck for kill (not quite but figure it out)

Comparing football and baseball. "In baseball, you go home"

"Thanks to Tidy Bowl the oceans will be blue again"

How long is "half a mo"

If you have seen the @*#& documentary you will recognize his "What about the children?" comeback

A funny guy. I'll miss him

Shocking, R.I.P. George. I liked those one liners.

"If the Cincinnati Reds were really the first major league baseball team, who did they play?"

I raise my glass to the man. He lived life fully, influenced countless and brought laughter to many more.

Carlin was born in New York City, New York, the son of Mary (née Bearey), a secretary, and Patrick Carlin, a national advertising manager for the New York Sun. Carlin was of Irish descent and was raised in the Roman Catholic faith.

My sister got to see him perform in Halifax a couple years ago. I unfortunately was not old enough to go see it.

I personally loved his bit, "Some people say there are things that can't be funny. Like ****. Well, picture Elmer Fudd ****** Porky Pig."

I'm sad that I never got to see him live. He was at JFL last year or the year before and I couldn't get tickets. Sold out within 15 minutes, it was unbelievable.

Looks like the closest we'll ever get is live DVD's and VHS.
