George Carlin
Contest Directions: The Grammy-Award winning American comedian and actor George Carlin has died today of heart trouble. Carlin was constantly pushing the boundaries of accepted satire and language. His "Seven Words You Can Never Use on Television" is still banned from TV and radio today. Carlin was seen as counterculture hero, especially by the older generations, who remember Carlin's golden years in the 80s. Carlin, 71, kept performing as recently as last weekend at the Orleans Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas. George was a comedic genius who will be missed by millions of fans, including us at Freaking News.
To pay a tribute to a great man of satire, George Carlin, photoshop him any way you wish. Some examples are: show what Carlin will do in heaven (or hell), what movies he could have played in, what alternative careers he could have chosen, immortalize him in paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.
