Twain Prize Winner Carlin Dies at 71

George Carlin died last night at the age of 71 from heart failure. He’s this year’s recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for Humor, and probably one of the best satirists of the last 50 years. Tickets for the Award Presentation show go on sale on August 11th.

So, without further ado, please enjoy some really, really not-safe-for-work language to honor his contributions to American Humor, and to incense a few of the Congresscritters who will cry out “Think of the Children!” before keeling over.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
