Carlin banzai!

"Why, why, why, why, why is it that most of the people who are against abortion are people you wouldn't wanna fuck in the first place?"

Exceedingly cool and froody comedian George Carlin died Sunday of heart failure, aged 71. In his wake he's left 23 comedy albums, 14 HBO specials and three books, winning 4 Grammy awards in the process and becoming, in his own words, "a footnote in American legal history, which I'm perversely kind of proud of". Why? See for yourself:

Though I have to say, it was his later material, particularly regarding society, religion and the US government that really caught my attention. I'll miss him.
