R.I.P George Carlin...

"George Carlin, the acerbic, Grammy-winning comedian whose career spanned more than 50years, died of heart failure Sunday after being admitted to the hospital complaining of chest pains, a hospital spokesman said. He was 71.

Carlin, who had a history of heart problems, died at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica shortly before 6 p.m., said his publicist Jeff Abraham.

The comedian, who toured college campuses for years and made a name for himself using dirty language and delivering biting social commentaries, had released 22 solo albums and three bestselling books.

Carlin was a funny dude man, like on some real. Didn't need to draw a huge crowd with shock value nonsense. Real sad day, but clowns don't get depressed...they hit people with pies. R.I.P dude.

Heres one of his bits: (No atheist)
