He can do an extended bit too, most memorably the transcript of Jesus on a talk show plugging his new tell-all memoir about the Trinity, Three's a Crowd. Carlin is funny, but genuinely angry and poignant at times: "You live 80 years and at best you get about six minutes of pure magic," he says. Sad, but about right.
And how did Carlin get into his line of business, "thinking up goofy s---," as he puts it? There's a clue in one entry in this book: "As of 1995 the number of people who had lived on earth was 105,472,380,169 ... it means that at this point there have been almost 1 quadrillion human bowel movements and most of them occurred before people had anything to read. These are the kind of thoughts that kept me from moving quickly up the corporate ladder."
Thank god Carlin stayed low on the corporate food chain and high on his own utterly idiosyncratic ideas! --Tim Appelo --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

The first time I learned about George Carlin must have been some 30-35 years ago; being Mexican, it adds up, since I don't know one single person among my friends and acquaintances... Read morePublished 10 months ago by Rodolfo R. Solorzano
Although GC has been made immortal for his provocative and controversial monologues, NandSP is a domesticated caged version of that. --AmeliaPublished 13 months ago by Anne Morgan Spalter
