To appreciate the humor, I also found it helpful to really have Carlin’s voice and delivery style in your head watch a recent HBO special to get familiar with it. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
Overall, well worth the price! So when I started reading this book I was curious to find out what it would be like. No, viruses, mold, mildew, maggots, fungus, weeds, E. The sad thing is, having read this after his death, and seen most of his stand-up. When watching a skit, I know George is putting on a show and doesn’t actually mean lots of the things he says.
Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. Of course, he includes his fair share of silly boy humor, such as bodily function jokes, but that’s just what boys do. With his manic mind and motor mouth in high gear, he rants against anyone who tells him to “have a nice day” and s He’s back!
Some of the stuff is really fresh. His books are really funny, and he addresses the elephant in the room. I liked George Carlin, but this book was a bit too much.
My one regret in my life thus far is not seeing him live when I have 2 opportunities to do so. How can people possibly watch all of thehome movies from their meaningless lives. He takes a very holier-than-thou attitude to many issues, some of which I think simply leaving people behind like that would hurt more than help.
If you’re at all easily offended, don’t even pick this one up. Feb gworge, lit. Call me old-fashioned but I insist that my flight stop. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
He was one of a kind and we won’t see another like him. I don’t have time for fine distinctions. George Carlin is one of the few things my dad and I have in common which gets him bonus points because my dad and I are as similar as night and day. Life is brutal like napalm, but Carlin’s philosophy was to sit georgd and laugh at all the idiots the same way you do with silly putty.
He was a frequent performer and guest host on The Tonight Show during the three-decade Johnny Carson era, and was also the first person to host Saturday Night Live. More cynical, less funny. He sure comes across as a curmudgeon here.
And he makes some startling observations, including: Refresh and try again.

Parts of this book are really funny. Sad, but about right. It resembled carlih way that Carlin talked, so almost all of the time I imagined him talking. Write a customer review. Mar 20, Son Tung rated it really liked it. It seems a lot of this was just filler to make up enough pages It consists of one liner type jokes and some stories that are jokes.
A disciple of Lenny Bruce, he placed second on the Comedy Central cable television network list of the 10 nxpalm stand-up comedians, ahead of Bruce and behind Richard Pryor. But at the same time there was a lot of vulgarity thrown in for good measure for kicks and giggles I guess.
My particular favorite from this one is the bit about airplanes.

Why do they bother saying “raw sewage”? Nothing sacred about those things. Brain Droppings was first published inand I feel like this might have been a low-point in his career, when the material he was putting out was just not that amazing. Four years ago, Carlin’s huge fan following kept his Brain Droppings on the New York Times bestseller list for 40 weeks, so it’s no surprise he’s back for caelin round of acrid and oblique observations on modern mores.
His telling was impassive, bland and without direction. And you might have noticed something else.
