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.

    "Good the first time"

    The first run through of the audiobook was good and lively. The replay with slight additions- not so much- adding new material is fine but the entire replay was redundant and distracting, it took away from the overall experience.

    "Interesting and funny"

    Never heard of this guy before. However, he has interesting points of views of ordinary situations and tells them hilariously.

    "George Carlin is legendary!"

    Carlin's material is made to be listened to. A lot of the sarcastic, snarky emotion would get lost without his voice. I would love the collection so much more if I hadn't heard so many of the jokes in "Life is Worth Losing" and "Parental Advisory." I love how his material isn't typically laugh-out-loud punchline material, but more of things that get you thinking. A master at his best.

    "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.

    "A must have."

    Haaaaaaaah!!! One can never go wrong with anything by George-- unless you are an over-sensitive softy. Always funny - always worth the trip.
