#3: George Carlin On What Makes Us Similar

I've always been a longtime fan of the legendary stand-up comedian George Carlin, especially most of his terrific HBO specials. So here is number 3 in my 31 Clips In 31 Days.

His stuff (not a coincidence I used that term) never gets tired or old, and he used his sharp wit on all kinds of subjects. I loved his Football vs. Baseball comparison, and the one where he goes after those who want to save the planet. We differed on a few things, but I always enjoyed those routines he would do about wordplay, and one of my all-time favorites is one where George talks about things we all have in common.

It's a comic masterpiece. God bless George wherever he is. Enjoy.
