For four decades, George Carlin has been one of America's favorite comics, known as much for his willingness to take on taboo subjects as for his absurdist wordplay. As an author, he has proved equally popular: With combined sales of more than two million copies, Carlin's three books of razor-sharp and hilarious observations have topped bestseller lists nationwide. Now, just in time for the holidays, Hyperion proudly collects all three volumes--When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?, Napalm and Silly Putty, and Brain Droppings--into one hilarious omnibus, a slipcased edition that also includes new material.

It's the best of Carlins books put together. Great conversation starters and will always make a great gift for that person who loves to laugh!!!
If you've read any of George Carlin's best-selling books of his unused material and greatest bits, you'll enjoy this book that puts all three in one package...at a discount price compared to the cost of all three.
If you're looking for something to get you laughing, and at the same time get you thinking in new ways, this book is an excellent way to go. It's packed with funny, random stuff that will also leave you thinking deeply for quite a while.
