F***, George Carlin's Dead

6/23/2008 2:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George CarlinBust out those seven words, it's time for a tribute. Legendary comedian George Carlin has died.

The 71-year-old Carlin died around 6:00 PM PT this evening at an L.A. hospital after being admitted earlier in the afternoon for chest pains.

A battle over his comedy -- namely his "Filthy Words" routine -- went all the way to the Supreme Court.

One of my best memories of him doing standup is when he talked about all the "Stuff" people have. And the car windows that you have to roll down manually. Sigh. He will really be missed. Bye bye George. It's the end of an era.

An inspiring man. He did great things for freedom of speech, going all the way to the supreme court to defend his right to do his routine. Bless him, and bless his family in their time of grief.

WHY ALL THE COMMENTS ABOUT " LAUGHTER IN HEAVEN" AND " PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU"?

HE WAS AN ATHIEST THAT MADE FUN OF CHRISTIANS.......

And the sad thing is TMZ is still so under the thumb of AOL and Time Warner they still won't print those words.

Why is it a great man like George is gone, and yet Harvey and his band of twinks are still around.....

RIP George
