A Seven Word Eulogy for George Carlin

Shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, tits.

Okay, maybe a bit more than seven words, but those are the seven that need to be said.

One of my favourite statistics quotes is also one of his funniest lines.

Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!

George Carlin

George Carlin was my favourite comedian.  His comedy was a unique and insightful mixture of crass language and deep social commentary.  He had a unique way of pointing out exactly was wrong with the world and making it funny at the same time.

Many modern comedians make it their focus to satirise current events, but George Carlin perfected it long before any of them were standing in front of their first audience, delivering their jokes.

George Carlin will be sorely missed by yours truly and I’m sure a multitude of people around the world.  Today is a sad day because the world saw the departure of one of its funniest people.

George, your soul has been flung to the highest roof and may it always be there.
