This 1996 concert set is archetypal George Carlin; a comic barrage that alternates between increasingly cheesed-off rants about various aspects of American culture, and bemused observations about language. Among other subjects, he tackles abortion ("How come most people who are against abortion are people you wouldn't want to *!*@? in the first place?"), public flatulence (don't ask), the drug wars (his solution: execute the white Republican bankers who launder the drug money).
The shallowness of the phrase "bad hair day" ("Put on a hat and go to work!") and capital punishment (he advocates a return to crucifixion, on the theory that it's a method that both American Jews and Christians can really relate to) are also dissected. Typically scabrous and extremely funny stuff.
