(He loathed the term “passed away” so I’ll refrain from using it here)
of heart failure; he was 71 years old. I’m sure some of you old-timers out there have fond memories of Carlin from his earlier comedy stuff ”7 words you can’t say on television” The original seven words were, shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, and tits
Carlin’s seven words, he would caution ironically, “are the ones that’ll infect your soul, curve your spine, and keep the country from winning the war.”
George Carlin, you will truly be missed.
