Description:

With nearly 20 albums, two Grammys, two Cable ACE awards, and more HBO specials sunder his
belt than anyone else, George Carlin is more popular than ever. Now, for the first time, Carlin has
produced a book of original humor pieces, Brain Droppings. Filled with thoughts, musings,
questions, lists, beliefs, curiousities, monologues, assertions, assumptions, and other verbal
ordeals, Brain Droppings is infectiously funny. Also included are two timeless bonus items from the
past, "A Place for Your Stuff" and "Baseball-Football."

Readers will get an inside look into Carlin's mind, and they won't be disappointed by what they
find:

I buy stamps by mail. It works OK until I run out of stamps.

What year did Jesus Christ think it was?

A tree: first you chop it down, then you chop it up.

Have you ever noticed the lawyer is always smiling more than the client?

I put a dollar in one of those change machines. Nothing changed.


If you ever have chicken at lunch and chicken at dinner, do you ever wonder if the two chickens
knew each other?

About Author:

George Denis Patrick Carlin was a Grammy-winning American stand-up comedian, actor, author,
and philosopher.
Carlin was especially noted for his political and black humor and his observations on language,
psychology, and religion along with many taboo subjects. Carlin and his "Seven Dirty Words"
comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation,
in which a narrow 5-4 decision by the justices affirmed the government's right to regulate Carlin's
act on the public airwaves.
Carlin's mid-2000s stand-up routines focused on the flaws in modern-day America. He often took
on contemporary political issues in the United States and satirized the excesses of American
culture.
A disciple of Lenny Bruce, he placed second on the Comedy Central cable television network list
of the 10 greatest stand-up comedians, ahead of Bruce and behind Richard Pryor. 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.

Rated it: it was amazing

"My motto? "F**k hope". P.S. In case you're wondering, I'm a joyful individual [...] I'm a personal
optimist, but a skeptic about all else"
Carlin efficiently kicks away all the crutches we use to justify the stupid things we live with.
