George Carlin take the final bow

A truly sad morning as word was confirmed that George Carlin, one fo the true kings of stand-up comedy, passed away last night at the age of 71. His HBO concerts are a thing of legends and his wit and timeless, perverted (in the truest sense of the word) observational humor will never be matched. And what is somewhat ironic is that he was going to be honored with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor; probably for saying those seven words that you can't never say on TV - many times. The laughter has definitely left the room today.
