CBR III Review #27: In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks: . . . And Other Complaints from an Angry Middle-Aged White Guy by Adam Carolla
Adam Carolla is a first class complainer, he should be given a gold medal in complaining, and just a heads up he manages to offend every group of people under the sun. It's not the type of book you want to read if get easily offended. Carolla's more socially liberal and fiscally conservative and that comes out in the novel in a few places. In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks: . . . And Other Complaints from an Angry Middle-Aged White Guy is essentially a 250-page standup rant. If you like Carolla's podcast you'll love the book. If you think he is an unfunny whiny man then you'll hate it.
Here is one of my favorite parts of the book: " If you can’t afford a TV or you pawned your TV because of a gambling debt, you get a pass. But this is the guy who doesn’t own a TV for the sole purpose of announcing he doesn’t own a TV. This is his way of declaring he’s better than you. He acts like everyone who has a TV just sits around staring at Night Court reruns and Ashton Kutcher commercials. He would never admit there’s provocative, informative, entertaining programming such as my favorite new reality show I’m a Pretentious A--hole Who Tells Everyone I Don’t Own a TV."
