George Carlin on Being Old
It's a too-busy week here at Chez Bennett so I'm reaching for some easy stuff you might enjoy that gives me time to take care of business, as it were.
One good way is video of George Carlin who is, I know, a favorite I share with many TGB readers. It is amazing that even though he has been dead for six years, his political riffs and rants are as relevant today as when he first delivered them.
(I'm not sure if that shows how prescient he was or if nothing has changed since 2008.)
But politics is not what we have today. Instead, here is his take on growing old. If you're easily offended by the F-word, you might want to skip this – he uses it a lot. Otherwise, enjoy.
(You all know, I think, that if for some reason this video won't play in your location, click the YouTube logo in the lower right corner. It will open on its YouTube page where it is usually viewable – except in some non-U.S. countries.)
