Stand-up comic Greg Giraldo
thinks Americans should take a cue from Europeans when it comes to caring for the elderly. "We need to treat our old people the way they do," jokes the former host of Comedy Central's Stand-up Nation
. "Like leaving them alone to die in the heat, while we go on vacation. Old people die in France, because [their families] go off to the Riviera and sun themselves in their ball-hugger man-thongs." When Giraldo goes on vacation, he says, he leaves his grandmother in the basement "where it's cooler."
