George Carlin died of heart problems Sunday. He was 71.

RIP George.

I grew up listening to George Carlin and Cheech and Chong.

Yea, the man was always there to kick some sense into America's ass since he started comedy.

I never really watched anything of Carlin's, but since his death, I've caught a few videos and quotes of his, and he was truly awesome...definitely a loss for both the comic circle and the "sane" circle.

I guess he should have eaten more broccoli. :p

He was one of my all time favorite comedians.

The world just got a lot less funny.

Anlushac11 I grew up listening to George Carlin and Cheech and Chong.

Cheech and Chong are awesome. They are like stoner gods. Its sad to hear about Carlin though, i never seen much of his stuff, but what i did see and hear was pretty funny.

As sad as it is to hear that he died, his more recent shows weren't my favorite. To much politics and not enough funny, more like a lecture than anything else.
