Added DiffLines:

** In one of his most famous skits, he decries "The American Dream" as a myth that is fed to middle-class people in order to keep them working toward unattainable goals. You wonder if Carlin remembers that he rose from humble inner city roots to become a multi-millionaire.

Added DiffLines:

* LaterInstallmentWeirdness: George aged quite rapidly once he got into his 60s, both physically and vocally. Going by his appearance and mannerisms in 2005's "Life Is Worth Losing" and 2008's "It's Bad For Ya," you might've thought he was a different person than the one in 2001's "Complaints and Grievances."

Guess what? Keep on reading! How are you? I hope you are fine. I... '''am not fine'''. As you can no doubt tell from me hanging here from the ceiling fixture. '''You are the ones who drove me to this.''' I was doing just fine until you fuckers came along. I hope that you're happy now that I'm goddamned dead.\\

* BlackComedy: A ''master''. Arguably one of the best examples is his material on suicide in ''Life is Worth Losing'', where he monologues as though he were planning to kill himself and discussed when, where and how to do it--and it was hilarious. The suicide note for example.

--->What you really want, what you really must have, what you really need, is a complete whole scab you can put down, study, look at, and make notes on it. Perhaps write a series of penetrating articles for Scab Aficionado Magazine. Who knows? You might rise to the top of the scab world in a big hurry; it's a small community, and they need people at the top. (Awkward audience laughter) ... I sense I've gone too far... so I'll quit while I'm ahead, and I'll change the subject!
