Pretty funny and irreverent. Nothing is sacred to George Carlin. He attacks religion, politics, modern language, America and the handicapped. Do not read this if you are easily offended. I enjoyed it immensely and it kept me occupied during my breaks at work all week. 4 stars.
Not as funny as I would have liked to read from George Carlin, however, the book is worth a look. It does have its moments. In case you are not a George Carlin fan, you may not like the language although it did not bother me.
True to George Carlin's insightful irreverence about anything that comes to his mind. Good for a hearty, cynical laugh before going to bed. But, not as good as Carlin's "Braindroppings," in case you have to chose one over the other.
I have loved George Carlin's legendary irreverence and side splitting sense of humor since I first saw him on the Johnny Carson show when he first started out. Johnny almost split a gut and paid him the compliment of inviting him to sit (an action which was reserved only for those guests originally intended to entertain and then leave the stage. Whenever Johnny did this, it seemed it was quite a boose to their career. George Carlin's talent for making ordinary subjects into side-splitting rediculousness can't but please most folk.
A master of observational humor, he bounces all over the place and chances are you've probably noticed the same things. Some profanity is over the top, but it never lasts log and is easily skipped over if you feel the need. I'll be requesting him again.
Collection of short Carlin observations on various inanities of modern life. Slightly broader in scope than "Brain Droppings", and with some genuinely funny stuff in it; however Carlin still indulges himself far too often with riffs that seem to have no purpose but to tickle the gag reflex rather than the funny bone.
A whole book of Carlin's endless, repetitive, bitterness and anger at everything and everybody. Must have known he was on his way out of likfe and was not happy at the prospect of meeting his maker...whom Carlin did not believe in but, has since found out that God believed in him. Not worth your while reading, not funny, sad and tragic, actually.
Bookfanatic reviewed When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops? on
HILARIOUS! From the opening page to the end, the book made me laugh so many times. I love Carlin's smart alecky sense of humor. If you're thin skinned or sensitive, don't read this book because you'll be offended at so many of the things Carlin says. This book is for those of us who find humor in religion, politics, and just about everything else in life. No one is safe in this book, not even Jesus, as you can tell from the title. I loved Carlin's witty zingers. This book is a keeper.
