George Carlin was my first favorite comedian. Host of the first episode of Saturday Night Live (and more than 100 subsequent appearances), author of "Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television", three books and enough standup to fill several more volumes, he inspired me expect real answers to the question "Why?" and to not be satisified until I got one.
As Rufus, Bill and Ted's guide from the future who gave them a time traveling phonebooth he gave a nod to a new generation.
There was never one more honest, intelligent, insightful and filthy.
RIP Wise Sage.
