Publisher's Summary

If one George Carlin audio is funny, then two are funnier and three must be funniest, right? That's our thinking behind this new collection. It's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits. The set includes:

Brain Droppings
Acerbic observations, manic musings, in-your-face questions, witty word play, and more "droppings" from Carlin's singular brain. "I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed." "Why are there no recreational drugs taken in suppository form?" The first Carlin book on audio and a 2001 Grammy winner.

Napalm & Silly Putty
Carlin invents Past-Tense TV (Got Smart, Father Knew Best, It Was Left to Beaver); crusades for the Center for Research into the Heebie Jeebies; founds the George Carlin Book Club (recommended reading: Fill Your Life with Croutons); and suggests that "If the shoe fits, get another just like it." A 2002 Grammy winner.

More Napalm & Silly Putty
Everything that wouldn't fit on the first Napalm recording - like "A Day in the Life of Henry VIII", "Sports Should Be Fixed", compelling confessions ("I couldn't commit suicide if my life depended on it"), and candid takes on life's little moments ("I'm beyond the nice day"), all delivered with wicked glee.

    "George Carlin is still with us...in spirit!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend anything by George Carlin.


    Which character – as performed by George Carlin – was your favorite?

    Not really a character...but enjoyed the parts on the proper pronunciation and/or use of words. It has always been a pet peeve of mine, how people slaughter the English language.


    Was George Carlin Reads to You worth the listening time?

    It is always worth the time to listen to George Carlin.


    Any additional comments?

    Just a word to the wise. I do know that that "Brain Droppings" is an abridged version of the book. There are sections from the actual book that are omitted. I have never read "Napalm and Silly Putty" so I am not sure if that is also abridged.

    "I thought I would like it"
    Any additional comments?

    Maybe I've gotten to old, but I used to love George Carlin when I was young. I know how he is but this is too much f this and f that and it seems like he's saying stuff just for some type of shock value, or like when a bunch of teenage boys get together. I don't think I've even chuckled twice.

    "Excellent"

    All Carlin fans should own this. It is not stand up routines and has unneeded music. But still classic carlin.

    "Forgot to Return this one..."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you don't mind a bunch of cuss words, you have more of a likelihood of enjoying this book (or first paragraph) than I did.

    "The music at the end of ever joke was annoying."

    I know when to laugh I don't need a little ditty played at the end of every joke to let me that George just said something funny.

    "Next level etymological comedy"

    George Carlin was a great wordsmith. And super fucking funny. Lots of classic material in this collection. Can't wait to listen to it all again!
