Kids have it tough these days. (1:54)

BECAUSE I WAS BOOED OFFSTAGELAST WEEK, MAN...

AT A BENEFIT.

( laughter )

SO I WAS BOOED OFFSTAGEFOR FREE.

EVERYBODY BOOED ME, EVEN THEPOSTER CHILD BOOED ME OFFSTAGE.

HE WAS IN THE CORNER GOING,"YOU SUCK.

GET OFFSTAGE, YOU SUCK."

AND HE WAS HOOKED UPTO AN OXYGEN TANK

THAT'S WHAT BLEW ME AWAY.

HE LITERALLY HAD TO TAKEA BREATH IN ORDER TO BOO ME.

( inhales )

"BOO!"

( laughter )

( inhales )

"YOU SUCK."

I WAS, LIKE, "SCREW YOU, MAN,I CAME HERE FOR YOUR BENEFIT.

I HOPE THEY NEVER FINDA CURE NOW."

THAT'S WHEN EVERYBODYGOT PISSED.

PEOPLE STARTED THROWINGTHEIR ARTIFICIAL LIMBS AT ME.

DEAF MUTES WERE BOOING MEIN SIGN LANGUAGE.

( laughter )

THEN THEY TRIEDTO THROW ME OFFSTAGE

BUT NOBODY'S WHEELCHAIRCOULD GET UP THE STEPS.

( imitating motorized wheelchair )

"IF I HAD LEGS,I'D KICK YOUR BUTT."

"STAY RIGHT THERE, I'M COMING."

( imitating whir )

"SOMEBODY GET MEOUT OF THIS CORNER."

( laughter )

THAT'S A TRUE STORY, MAN.

KIDS HAVE IT SO HARDNOWADAYS, THOUGH, MAN--

ALL THE CRIME AND THE DRUGS OUT.

I THINK ONE WAY TO HELP THEYOUNG GENERATION FIGHT DRUGS

IS THAT IF YOU SIMPLY SHOW THEM

PICTURES OF WHAT WE USED TO WEARIN THE '60s AND THE '70s...

"YOU SEE THIS SHIRT

"WITH THE COLLAR GOINGALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE ELBOW?

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENSWHEN YOU TAKE DRUGS."

( laughter )
