"George Carlin Books"
George Carlin books make Dr. Kuhn laugh so hard he wets his pants (unfortunately, we're not kidding). But this is not the fault of Cliff's advancing age, it is purely the fault of the funniest and most observant writer alive today! Your beliefs may sometimes get skewered, but you will always laugh out loud. And even when you disagree, you'll have to admit George Carlin has made a funny point. If you enjoy Dr. Kuhn's reviews of these three books, you will also enjoy his reviews of Carlin's CD's.
George Carlin has an amazing mastery of the English language, which he makes a big part of his act as well- poking fun at how others have mangled it, how it's changed over time to be more politically correct, etc.
In this first George Carlin book,
we find continued and expanded comedy - Carlins views, thoughts, and insights about the world around him, as well as people and events. After perusing this book, I've found a great deal of my views about life and the world to parallel his. As a result, I give "Brain Droppings" high praise. Carlin states the problems he sees with everything, but offers nothing, beyond some outrageous "cures" that makes a little sense in their own weird way, on how to remedy them. This is because he sees no true hope for the future of mankind, and gleefully awaits its destruction. So why try? Hmmm... sounds about right to me...
Also contained within are a few of his classic standup pieces, including "The Difference Between Baseball and Football", and "A Place For My Stuff!". But, unlike many other comedian-penned novels, this one doesn't merely re-hash the author's stand-up dialogue. There's plenty of new and original material to enjoy as well in this George Carlin book.
My favorite bits are the "Short Takes"- strange little random thoughts that Carlin's come up with over the years. He has a seemingly endless list of them inside this book, many of which are much more profane and adult-oriented.
One thing that I really enjoy about this George Carlin book is that it's arranged in a brilliantly haphazard fashion, with no real linkage between chapters. One could skip from one part of the book to another, and another, without missing a beat. You get bored with one chapter, just flip a chunk of pages and head on over to another one. Or even work your way backwards to a previous spot in the book.
Napalm and Silly Putty
George Carlin is without a doubt one of the best comedians of all time. If you enjoy hearing his comic mayhem on CDs or seeing him live, you'll fall in love with the George Carlin book,
"Napalm and Silly Putty"
Filled with humor, both new and old, this George Carlin book has just about everything from airplane announcements to expressions that make no sense; from life to death; from organ doners and random thoughts; and a whole lot more! Also, this book contains short takes just like from "Brain Droppings". This book will have you laughing out loud and begging for more.
In "Napalm and Silly Putty," Carlin's razor-sharp observations demolish everyday values and leave you laughing to tears roll -- delivering exactly what his countless fans depend on him for - a respite from mind-numbing seriousness!
This George Carlin book may offend people who don't like others to think on their own, voice their opinions, hypochondriacs, and people with no sense of humor. As for the rest of you, buy this book!! It's a must have for any Carlin fan.
When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?
Here we go again . . . George Carlin's hilarious "When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?" offers his cutting-edge opinions and observational humor on everything from evasive euphemistic language to politicians to the media to dead people. Nothing and no one is safe!
Despite the current climate of political correctness, this is another of the
George Carlin books
that, as usual, is not afraid to take on controversial topics:
--Carlin on the media: The media comprises equal parts business, politics, advertising, public relations, and show business. Nice combination. Enough bull for Texas to open a chain of branch offices.
--Carlin on the battle of the sexes: Here's all you have to know about men and women: women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid.
--Carlin on hygiene: When did they pass a law that says the people who make my sandwich have to be wearing gloves? I'm not comfortable with this. I don't want glove residue all over my food; it's not sanitary. Who knows where these gloves have been?
--Carlin on evasive language: Just to demonstrate how far using euphemisms in language has gone, some psychologists are now actually referring to ugly people as those with "severe appearance deficits." Hey, Doctor. How's that for "denial"?
--Carlin on politics: No self-respecting politician would ever admit to working in the government. They prefer to think of themselves "serving the nation." To help visualize the service they provide the country, you may wish to picture the things that take place on a stud farm.
In "When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?" Carlin's razor-sharp observations again demolish everyday values and leave you laughing out loud -- delivering exactly what his countless fans have been waiting for.
As usual, George Carlin books do not disappoint our expectations of outrageous humor!
