Pretty funny and irreverent. Nothing is sacred to George Carlin. He attacks religion, politics, modern language, America and the handicapped. Do not read this if you are easily offended. I enjoyed it immensely and it kept me occupied during my breaks at work all week. 4 stars.
Bookfanatic reviewed When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops? on
HILARIOUS! From the opening page to the end, the book made me laugh so many times. I love Carlin's smart alecky sense of humor. If you're thin skinned or sensitive, don't read this book because you'll be offended at so many of the things Carlin says. This book is for those of us who find humor in religion, politics, and just about everything else in life. No one is safe in this book, not even Jesus, as you can tell from the title. I loved Carlin's witty zingers. This book is a keeper.
Collection of short Carlin observations on various inanities of modern life. Slightly broader in scope than "Brain Droppings", and with some genuinely funny stuff in it; however Carlin still indulges himself far too often with riffs that seem to have no purpose but to tickle the gag reflex rather than the funny bone.
A master of observational humor, he bounces all over the place and chances are you've probably noticed the same things. Some profanity is over the top, but it never lasts log and is easily skipped over if you feel the need. I'll be requesting him again.
