George Carlin (truth-joking)?

Why is it when people speak the truth, they die shortly thereafter? George Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) was an American stand-up comedian, social critic, actor, author, and friend who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums. Carlin was noted for his black humor as well as his thoughts on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. Carlin and his "Seven Dirty Words" comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a narrow 5–4 decision by the justices affirmed the government's power to regulate indecent material on the public airwaves. The first of his 14 stand-up comedy specials for HBO was filmed in 1977. In the 1990s and 2000s, Carlin focused on the flaws in modern-day America. He often commented on contemporary political issues and satirized the excesses of culture. Again, why is it when people speak the truth, they die shortly thereafter? (NOTE: full shows below)
