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.

This book will have you laughing out loud and begging for more.
Carlin fans will find most of the material in this book familiar as it is also seen in his stand-up (which is okay, most comedians do that).
There's also more than a few pages taken from Carlin's very first book, the obscure 'Sometimes a Little Brain Damage Can Help'.
Honestly I've heard most of what he says here verbatim while he's on stage. it's basically a book of his jokes. Read morePublished 3 months ago by akuji
This is classic "new" George Carlin. I like his old stuff better but this is worth the price. He sure knows how to say the 'F' word..... over and over again.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer

Carlin is very funny and has an incredible vocabulary. I don't know why he chose to be redundant with the vulgar, obscene language he persisted in using. It became boring.Published 6 months ago by Sara O. Tilson.
