Thoughts on Aging from Comedian George Carlin-Fiction!

 
Summary of eRumor:
A humorous commentary on aging with some thoughtful suggestion about how to keep a youthful perspective while growing older and said to have been created by comedian George Carlin.
The Truth:
We’ve not found any evidence that this is from George Carlin or that he ever performed it. It is a combination of two different collections of sayings about aging that have been put together and credited to him.  They’ve circulated since late in 2003.
The first one is all over the Internet, ends with the phrase “I’m one hundred and a half!” and possibly goes back to a routine by comedian and actor Larry Miller.

The next one, titled “How to Stay Young” is also circulated widely by itself and is usually attributed to George Carlin, but we have not been able to find where it really came from.
