rest in peace.
I have felt like I knew him, though I didn't really. But he was about more than those seven words.
The man was a genius.
I know you often hear about someone who changed comedy, but George Carlin actually did it.

Frisbeetarianism is the belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the roof and gets stuck.
I grew up with whatever George Carlin said. In his later years his "comwdy" got more irrelevant as the things he railed against became the norm.
Get some sleep George.
"Who are you?!"
"I am F*CK!!" " F*CK of the mountain!!"
-One of a kind. RIP
Oh damn. He was an original. May he rest in peace!
Oh no oh no. I miss his voice already.

As you grew, you went from being a comic to a stand up philosopher.
RIP George, now you're on a pedestal with Mark Twain, Will Rogers, and Steve Allen.
I am really ****ed to wake up to this sad news. What a ****sucking mother****ing thing to wake up to.
condolences to his family
I take this as an omen that we are ushering in a time very different than what we previously experienced. Sort of like the difference in the late 1950's and the arrival of the Beatles in the early 1960's; society had a "sea change." Does anyone else sense winds changing?
Anyway, he was a comic genius, in my opinion. And, once again this proves to me that the news can ruin my mood for the day.
Carlin was great... genius.... and I admire all people who are as or even more cynical than me. He will be missed.... it would be funny if he opened his eyes to find he was in heaven and had to agree to be an altar boy in order to get in....
Rest in peace seems so appropriate. Did anyone else notice how often that is the sentiment being applied here?
George, take break. Relax. Thanks for your insight and speeaking it plainly. We'll miss you.
