R.I.P. George Carlin

Although not my favorite all-time comedian, Carlin was a trailblazer and freakin' hillarious!  His seven bad words may be what he ulimately is best known for.  What is your favorite schtick of his?

Yes, my wife and I watched some of his old stand-up on HBO recently, he was a funny dude.  I especially appreciated that he was fond of interacting with his audience.  May his soul rest in eternal peace.

 I had the honor of seeing him three times in my life and I'm happy I went. I just watched his last HBO special recently and had a tear in my eye through out the show. His opening bit on getting old was almost scary since he passes only 16 months or so later. Watch it if you get the chance, you will see what I mean.  "I know you’re looking down at us" LOL

Biff Burns the sportscaster (these may not be the exact numbers, but the humor is still there):

"Here are tonight's scores:  106-99, 112-103, 96- 90. And here's a partial score: Stanford 72.

I liked his pancakes vs waffles bit.  He wasn't my favorite either but he was definitely funny and I would always stop to watch him if I flipped through the channels and saw him.

I really like him in the early 70's, the 7 words you couldn't say on TV was good, so was football vs baseball, but my favorite was the hippy dippy weatherman.
