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.

George was as big a part of the problems as anyone. Give it to him he spoke truth about the people in power who don't give a F*** about you, but it also helped people just laugh it off while the truth of it failed to sink in. Mainstream folk who love this guy still vote for the same people who don't care about them except for what they can use them for. George raked the bible across the coals constantly. as I see so many 'experts' do. Yet I doubt the man ever read or studied it, just like all self proclaimed experts on the bible out there, they spout misinfo based off of what they see around them or what someone has told them. They want to talk about something they are not even educated in or qualified to touch, but they know all about it,, don;t they? They know it all, F****** morons talking and bashing something they know nothing about.

Sure he did things to better humanity, Pat - he pointed out narrow-minded numb-nuts like yourself so we could laugh at them.
One month to the day - wow. He will never be replaced.

Thanks for all the laughs, George - and for the incredible insights.
