That's the title of comedian George Carlin's latest book, designed to "offend four ways." George is a real trooper; I remember seeing him at SUNY Plattsburgh's Angell College Center years ago, during his early-90's "college touring" days, and while that wasn't a high point in his comedy career, he was a hoot in person.
Carlin tells CNN: What do you think of the state of the world today?
CARLIN: It's a big freak show. You gotta just enjoy it. That's my attitude. The human race is destroying itself slowly and it's wonderful to watch. It's being led by America, which has all the money and the power and the guns.
We're all given a ticket to the American freak show the day we're born and some people, they put their ticket away. Me, I watch the show.
