“In Baseball, You Make An Error! Whooops!”

Rest in peace, George Carlin. I loved his bit on the differences between football and baseball. See below. What a loss. An American classic.

    Completely taken by surprise when I saw this on the news this morning. Absolutely loved the way he played on words. i.e. “Passengers can now get ON the plane… I don’t want to get ON the plane. The birds can sit ON the plane. I want to get IN the plane” and one of my all time favorites… “If your in a NEAR MISS it means you DIDN’T miss right? I want to be in a NEAR HIT”

    Truly one my favorite comedians. He will be missed.

    The clerk at Target today told me to ‘have a nice day’. It made me think of Carlin, and it made me smile.

    I thought the news this morning was a hoax. It had never occurred to me that George Carlin was mortal and that one day we’d have to go on without him.

    I will never forget his response, on the Actor’s Studio to the question “What is your least favorite noise” — the sound of a truck beeping backing up.

    When I heard the news, I utter one of the seven words you can’t say on television. Seems fitting.
