From the moment you're born, someone's trying to kill your joy. (3:27)

YEAH, THIS IS SO EXCITING.

SO HARD TO HAVE FUN,DON'T YOU THINK?

WHEN YOU GET OLDER

YOU KNOW, EVERYONE IS SUPPOSEDTO BE SO SERIOUS.

LIFE IS SO SERIOUS.

YOU KNOW,YOU NEVER SEE PEOPLE SKIPPING

WHEN THEY GROW UP, YOU KNOW?

YOU NEVER SEE ANYONECOMING HOME FROM WORK

WITH THEIR BRIEFCASE SWINGING.

I HAD A GOOD DAY.♪ LA-LA-LA

I MADE A LEVERAGED BUYOUT.♪ LA-LA-LA

IT'S LIKE FROM THE MOMENTYOU'RE BORN

SOMEONE'S ALWAYS TRYINGTO KILL YOUR JOY, RIGHT?

ALL GROWING UPALL MY MOTHER SAID WAS:

"YOU THINK EVERYTHINGIS SO FUNNY."

( audience laughs )

IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE.

YOU'RE SUPPOSEDTO ENJOY EVERYTHING.

DO YOU REMEMBERWHEN YOU WERE A KID

HOW MUCH FUN YOU HADJUST CHASING A BALL FOR HOURS?

YOU COULD JUST CHASE THE BALL.

NOW, AT OUR AGE

A BALL GETS AWAY FROM US,IT'S LIKE "OH, FOR GOD'S SAKE."

THE HORRIBLE, HELLISH FATEOF HAVING TO RETRIEVE THE BALL.

"HEY, CAN YOU THROW ITRIGHT AT ME?

"I HATE TO MOVE AROUND

WHEN I'M GETTINGPHYSICAL ACTIVITY."

GOD, HOW I ENVY

SEEING KIDS JUST WALKINGDOWN THE STREET

WAILING AWAY--

( childish wailing ):I DON'T WA...I DON'T WA...

WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO DO THATNOW, HUH?

MONDAY MORNING, YOU'RE WALKINGOUT THE DOOR TO WORK

( childish wailing ):I DON'T WANT TO GO TO WORK.

I DON'T WANT TO.

( wailing )

LOOK AT YOU.

YOU'RE LIKE,"YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH."

BUT IT'S TRUE:WE HAD SO MUCH POWER BACK THEN.

IT WAS THE ONLY TIMEIN OUR LIVES

THAT NOBODYCOULD PUSH US AROUND.

NOBODY COULD TELL YOUWHAT TO DO WHEN YOU WERE A KID.

"IT'S TIME FOR YOUTO GO TO BED."

( childlike ):NO!

NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!

WHY DID WE EVER LOSETHIS BEHAVIOR?

DON'T YOU THINK IT WOULD BE

SO MUCH MORE PRACTICALAS AN ADULT?

"OH, I'M SORRY,THE BANK CANNOT CASH YOUR CHECK

"WITHOUT PROPER I.D.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVETO COME BACK TOMORROW."

NO!

NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!

WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT

EVERY TIME A COPPULLS YOU OVER FOR SPEEDING

YOU'RE LIKE

LOO-LOO LA-LA OOH-OOH.

CAN'T HEAR YOU.

CAN'T GET A TICKETIF I CAN'T HEAR YOU.

( tongue-rolling noises )

THIS IS YOU.

TELL YOU WHAT WE SHOULD DO.

WE'RE DOING IT BACKWARDSIF YOU ASK ME.

WE SHOULD BE DISCOURAGINGCHILDISH BEHAVIOR IN CHILDREN.

THEY'LL CRY ABOUT ANYTHING.

( childish voice ):I DROPPED MY COOKIE.

( adult voice ):HERE'S ANOTHER COOKIE.

( childish voice ):I DON'T WANT THAT COOKIE.

THAT'S SO ANNOYING, YOU KNOW?

WE SHOULD ELIMINATETHIS BEHAVIOR

AND INSTEAD,ENCOURAGE IT IN ADULTS.

WE'RE THE ONES WHO HAVESOMETHING TO CRY ABOUT.

( crying ):MY COMPUTER'S BROKEN.

MY COMPUTER'S BROKEN!

( adult voice ):HERE'S ANOTHER...

( crying ):I DON'T WANT THAT COMPUTER!

I WANT MY COMPUTER!
