George Carlin

George Carlin passed away yesterday.

A Place for My Stuff
was one of the first cassette tapes I bought. He was fascinated by language, fought against political correctness, loved to point out our foibles and the stupid things we have in common. He joked that his routines were things you know, but forgot to laugh at the first time around. He commented on politics, religion and any other taboo subject. His famous Seven Dirty Words you Can Never Say on Television led to a Supreme Court case with the FCC.

The following clips are some of his more relatively clean routines, but beyond the Baseball vs Football clip, they aren't totally work computer friendly.
