It's the thought that counts!

I am surprised when I speak of George Carlin's humor and logic people always say "He has a dirty mouth". FOLKS! LISTEN TO ME AND ESPECIALLY TO GEORGE! He is trying to get a point across with his humor, which is exactly what comedian Lenny Bruce was doing many years ago. If all you see is the cussing, then you miss on an opportunity to think. It's like the old saying "What you see is what you get" ...Braindroppings is hiliarious! I really love his take on religion, politics, and fallacies that many of us seem to believe in. One line he says is "I don't want something that's good for headahces. I want something that's bad for headaches and good for me. As well, I don't want the doctor prescribing me pain pills, I need relief pills"
HE also makes fun of euphisms that many of the liberals like to use. They like conservatives, don't think about what they are doing and as well he thinks the euphisms are a form of lying. He's absolutely right! Calling someone cripple versus "differently abled" is crap, as well it is a vague term.
But, I don't want to spoil it for you. Go ahead and buy this book! It will put a smile on your face and will get you to start thinking.

This book, like Naplam and Silly Putty, is a collection of some of the funniest stuff I've ever read. I've read both books and I prefer this one. There was less of his stand-up and more original material (at least it was new to me). You just can't say enough about Carlin, this is probabally the funniest book I've ever read. If your going to read it in public, be prepared to be asked to leave the room or told to stop laughing. Something in the book will make you mad, but it you will laugh at the same time. Buy the book, in fact buy 10 copies and maybe Carlin will write another one.

Ok, now I must admit, I am extremely biased in this review. For the simple fact that I believe George Carlin is the funniest man alive, why else would I have drove 6 hours to see him live? This book is Carlin to the tee. If you are easily offended, or unable to accept a good idea, I suggest leaving this book alone. However if you are open minded, and up for a good laugh, get it!
