Publisher's Summary

The thinking person's comic who uses words as weapons, George Carlin shares all-new, cutting-edge opinion and observational humor in this best seller. Carlin demolishes everyday values and leaves you laughing out loud. Learn what he thinks of sports fans, how he would improve the TV networks, his suggestions for "Legal Murder Once a Month," and his plan for "World Peace Through Dancing." Performed by Carlin himself, and filled with thoughts, musings, questions, lists, beliefs, curiosities, monologues, assertions, assumptions, and other verbal ordeals, Brain Droppings is infectiously funny.

    "Clever"

    An interesting view on todays use of language and new perspectives on both the big amd small social trends and issues in our society. All of this presented in a humorous manner.

    Story
    "Very disapponting"
    What disappointed you about Brain Droppings?

    George Carlin came across as a very negative bad person. It had some good observations but was not funny at all.


    Has Brain Droppings turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, just George Carlin.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Material and performance was pretty bad.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disgust. Why do many comedians think uttering the work F@#ck is funny. It is a word. Get over it. Just because someone says it does not mean everyone is going to howl with laughter.

    "Kratchety Uncle George"
    Would you listen to Brain Droppings again? Why?

    i listen again and again. i share his raunchy sense of humor.


    What other book might you compare Brain Droppings to and why?

    Napalm & Silly Putty I & 2. He has a great balance between 'righteous ranting' and 'raunchy humor'. George was a genius. i miss him.

    Story
    "If you like the Carlin of late..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    George Carlin went through an very noticeable evolution as a comic. The comic in his latter days is the comic of this book. If you remember him as the Hippy Dippy Weatherman, then this is not the same comic. Brain Droppings is a book of comic observations of the stupid things humans do and say and Carlin has no sympathy for us a a species.


    What about George Carlin’s performance did you like?

    Carlin performs the reading of the book with the same style and well practiced performance that you would see when attending a live standup performance.(Which I was lucky enough to experience once.) The show I saw live was repeated verbatim a few months later on HBO.

    "Expected More"

    I've been a huge fan of Carlin for a while and have seem him live twice and he was always hilarious. This collection was just not particulary funny, unfortunately.

    "Hilariously intelligent!"

    A brilliant and very funny read. Caution: requires a certain degree of self-deprecating.

    "Good Job George"

    George Carlin has done it again. He sees things from different eyes and minds then most people. I like his perspective and his comedy. Once again he has made this reader think and laugh constantly.

    "Funny"

    If you like George Carlin, you'll like this rather unorthodox book. But be warned: this is just a printed version of his HBO comedy specials. George is the only one who could read this work and make it funny...and he does it very well.
