i am rarely shocked… rarely.  but, today, while checking out some online gossip, i read that george carlin had passed away.  sure, he had some alcohol and drug problems.  sure, he had a potty mouth.  but, really, dead?

i’ve always liked george carlin.  his humor was SHOCKING to me.  not shocking in a bad way, just an “omg i cannot believe he just said that” kind of way.  and while it is sad when ANYONE dies, i actually felt… sad. 

there’s a line in that really awful sobadiloveit kevin smith film (co-starring george carlin), jersey girl, that randomly pops into my head – “forget about what you thought you were and just accept who you are.”  it popped in, again, today. 

rest in peace george carlin.  and tell my mom lots of dirty jokes there in that afterlife.  she liked you, too.
