I don’t know why, but sometimes, when a famous person dies, it just freakin’ bothers me. George Carlin, my favorite American comedian, died on Sunday.Â He died way too young.Â He was only 71 years old.
You might be laughing right now. But seriously. It just bugs me whenÂ people, who make a difference, die before they are at least 100 years old or something [and I didn’t even get the chance to see him perform].
George Carlin was hilarious, provoking and daring. He didn’t mince matters.
I could link you to hundreds of youtube videos right now so you could see for yourself. [Just go and type in his name and videos will pop up. Take the time toÂ watch and listen – but heads up, he uses offensive language sometimes – don’t you come back here and complain.]
As a foreigner, understanding and appreciating humorÂ in a foreign languageÂ can beÂ a real challenge, but even if you’re not American and English isn’t your first language, I am sure you’ll get a kick out of what George Carlin had to say.
He’ll be missed. Damn, I miss him already.
