From the Back Cover
The thinking person's comic who uses words as weapons, George Carlin shares all-new, cutting-edge opinion and observational humor in Brain Droppings. Filled with thoughts, musings, questions, lists, beliefs, curiosities, monologues, assertions, assumptions, and other verbal ordeals, Brain Droppings is infectiously funny. Carlin unleashes his opinions on "People Who Should Be Phased Out" (guys with creases in their jeans, people who know a lot of prayers by heart) and "Seven Things I'm Tired Of" (geeks with Walkmans, clothing with writing on it, having to read cloud descriptions in a book). He even offers the never-before-revealed "Guide to Dining Out" (order unusual things: a chopped corn sandwich with diced peas and rye potato chips). From nonsense such as "Eventually there will come a time when everyone is in a band" to the ultimately profound "It is impossible to dry one hand", you'll get a look inside Carlin's mind, and you won't be disappointed. Carlin demolishes everyday values and yet leaves you laughing out loud. You'll 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 Constant Dancing. Also included are two classic Carlin monologues - "A Place for My Stuff" and "Baseball and Football". --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

When I first read this book, I literally laughed out loud as he ranted and raved at just about anything you can imagine. His passages on language, people and the world in general are some of the best pieces of comedy material that I have ever come across.
This is a recommended read for anyone who is ready for a good laugh. May I also recommend Mr Carlin's 'Napalm and Silly Putty' and 'When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?', the second and third books in the trilogy. Each one is guaranteed to make you laugh.
The book itself may have been thrown together rather quickly, but I'm sure the ideas it contains have been germinating and taking shape in Carlin's head for years. A lot of the language and politics related material is quite thought provoking provided you can stop laughing long enough to think.
Frankly, I'm shocked there are so many people who seem to hate "Brain Droppings." I can see maybe if you are offended by the language (which is entirely possible), but saying the book is not funny at all just stupifies me. Carlin is a comedy genius and that's all there is to it. Buy this book!
