For those of you who haven't heard yet, on Sunday night, legendary comedian George Carlin died of heart failure at the age of 71. I know it sounds silly, but this kind of came as a shock to me. I always kind of figured Carlin was one of those guys who was going to live forever. He wasn't my idol or anything, but I was a fan of his work, and I'm sad to see him go.
Of course, a man of George Carlin's stature deserves a better send-off than I can give. I think the Associated Press did a nice obituary.
Now, for anyone unfamiliar with his work, here are a few clips so you can get a sense of what you missed.
