i’m noticing some repeating bits here, but that’s to be expected from a comedian. i’ve also noticed all the things that adam corolla, and for that matter, jerry seinfeld “borrowed” from the man. on that note-jiminy glick is the shit. so is martin short in damages. the more i read carlin, the more crochety i get, i’m just sayin’. this one’s for all the middle-aged ladies that come whining to my unsympathetic face about how nobody has the good larabars. ken muthafuckin’ lee:
“Then we have the eating disorders. Is it really a surprise that with all our pathological feeding habits Americans have eating disorders? Who makes worse dietary decisions? Who wastes more food?….And all of this conspicuous, deliberate waste takes place in the midst of global malnutrition and starvation. No wonder fucked-up teenage girls don’t want to eat.
Here’s another wonderful irony: with all our supposed superiority in food production, we provide our people with far higher rates of stroke, heart attack, colon cancer, and other diet diseases than most ‘inferior’ Third-World food economies do. But don’t you worry, those folks are catching up; social pathologies are our biggest export. And so, in a curious way, cancer turns out to be catching, after all.” (255)
