    I'm not trying to be objective, I ask that question sincerely. After reading this thread: http://www.dawgsaloon.com/showthread.php/44592-Brad-Pitt-s-A-Sellout , it got me thinking: Who hasn't sold out?

    In my mind there's Bill Hicks. For those unfamiliar, he's the guy who bashed Jay Leno for being a corporate whore who did Doritos ads. Hicks never sold out, but he died young and right before the prime of his career. Would he have sold out? I like to think not, but who knows?

    Then here's George Carlin. He jumped on the Hicks condemnation train, but ultimately, he showed that he was on the take.

    Is there any "celebrity" who has lived off their art an not by corporate sponsorship? Howard loves bashing Leno for it, but Howard's the biggest whore out there. Is there anybody who'll refuse a paycheck?
