Seriously, I was waiting for him to come back to my town so I could see him.

I use to watch Shining Time Station when he was Mr. Conductor...aw man, I loved that show.

And then I grew up and I got to appreciate his real work...

My favorite George Carlin quote of all time:

"Have you ever noticed that your shit is stuff and other people's stuff is shit?"

Seriously, his routines were genius.

My favorite was his explanation for the human race. We're here because the Earth needed styrofoam and couldn't make it herself. Once she has enough she's going to get rid of the lot of us.

We'll miss you George!

Some of my favorites:

When cheese gets it's picture taken, what does it say?

When someone asks you, A penny for your thoughts, and you put your two cents in, what happens to the other penny?

Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why is it still #2?

Frisbeetarianism is the belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the roof and gets stuck.

George Carlin made people smile at the absurdity of life. RIP.
