In Videos: George Carlin on Food, Live at Carnegie Hall (1980)

"Fussy eater is a euphemism for big pain in the ass."

In memory of the late, great comedian George Carlin, who passed away last night of a heart attack, here's a food-centric clip of his live performance at Carnegie Hall from 1980. My favorite part is his riff on tomatoes (at the 6:35 mark): "Something has gone afoul inside of a tomato. . . It doesn't look like it's finished. . . It looks like it's in the larval stage or something." Whenever I have to defend my stance of being an non-fan of raw tomatoes, I'll use this as my excuse. Watch the video after the jump.
