Twitter was built for tributes to George Carlin. Seven words just fit.
He no longer needs a place for his stuff. Damn.
I loved Carlin, although my wife cringed when I watched him late at night on HBO. “Can you please turn that down,” she would always say. The kids might hear.”
George was not a big fan of health insurance companies (especially Ohio health insurance companies) but I still thought he was incredibly funny!
Ohio Health Insurance Plans
Big fan of Carlin!
My paean to Carlin: http://mediaflect.blogspot.com/2008/06/george-carlin-my-hero.html … I went the traditional written form, although the blog post also got tweeted.
Sometimes, y’know, you need a few words to air out what the fuck it is you want to say.
guess you deleted my comment cuz it had the “f” word? hmm.
Not very Carlin-esque … unless it was caught in your spam filter or somesuch, in which case I’ll live — well I’ll live either way.
I didn’t delete anything; must have been caught in the tuna net.
Found it flopping in the net. Threw it back in the sea.
Poignancy, Jarvis, poignancy. Made me tear up, man. Well said.
My take then:
Buy my new book and get clickable footnotes and links.
Buy my new Kindle Single on Amazon.
Now out in paperback!
