RIP George, you ##$%^&!!@
George Carlin, the first host of Saturday Night Live and the man who brought us "The Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television" died yesterday in Santa Monica, CA of heart failure. He was 71.
I personally loved his social commentary, just because it was so true. One of my absolute favorite bits that Carlin did was the "airline announcements" and the "safety lecture" on the plane. (oops, sorry George, I meant in the plane). However, I believe his best bit is when he's talking about "Stuff."
I did have the opportunity to see him live a couple of times. All I can say is that it was a great show.
