The brief excerpt and 7:39 clip below are from George Carlin’s 1992 HBO TV special “Jammin’ in New York.”
“We’re so self-important. So self-important. Everybody’s going to save something now. Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save those snails. And the greatest arrogance of all: save the planet. What? Are these f***ing people kidding me? Save the planet, we don’t even know how to take care of ourselves yet. We haven’t learned how to care for one another, we’re gonna save the f***ing planet?
Warning: Carlin drops the f-bomb and other choice expletives that were a trademark of his famous “Dirty Words” routine and the seven words you can never say on television.
