George Carlin “The Modern Man”

In addition to being a brilliant comedian, George Carlin was a master of language. For most people, Carlin is perhaps best known for his “seven dirty words” routine in which he tries to determine what makes certain “dirty” words so offensive. In a similar vein is Carlin’s brilliant piece “The Modern Man” from his 2005 special Life Is Worth Losing. In this brilliant piece of word jazz, Carlin plays with the language of the early 21st century as he describes, amongst other things, how he’s an “alpha male on beta blockers.”
