I'll get crucified for this

If I see one more Facebook/MySpace/Blogger/news item related to the untimely and admittedly tragic death of George Carlin, I'm going to go postal.

YES...I agree, he was incredible.

YES...I agree the 7 bad words you can't say on tv was one of the funniest sketches EVER.

YES...he was a comic/pulp culture ICON...

YES... I loved him ever since "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure"

Let's move on...Ok? I'm done.

As much as I enjoyed his humor, honestly...guys, seriously? It's not like we've lost a great icon in American History. Be honest...I was more upset when Mitch Hedberg died. George made a little moment, stirred a little mud...his funnyness/salient point is done. Mitch was cut down in the prime of his glory (Belushi anyone?)

And yes, I realize by posting this post, I'm only prolonging it...

Rest in peace, George...ya done good. Thanks for passing the torch/challenge to others...I'll drink to you everytime I watch something you're in and curse like a drunken sailor, just for you, because you were one of my first comedic adorations...

I must be living under a rock-I had no idea Mitch Hedberg died. That guy was freakin' funny.
