Man that guy was funny. Loved his material about cats and dogs, "Stuff," and the difference between football and baseball. Just a few off the top of my head. RIP!

I am realy sad to read about the passing of this man. While I never knew him I certainly knew what he stood for and against. He was the spokes person for all of us when it came to the government and the way they treat people... I remember the first time I heard the seven words you can't say on TV I laughed so hard I thought I'd Puke... He was so brilliant and so ahead of his time... What a great loss to us all... RIP Mr. Carlin
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to his family for their great loss...

No I bet he doesn't because he was a smart man, take your thumping somewhere else and have some respect.

Makes me wonder if he had time to pack his stuff/shit before he left. I can't say I was much of a fan of Carlin, however, he always did offer a different prespective.
