Why did I love this book?
Any collection by Carlin is bound to be brilliant. It was a tie between Brain Droppings, Napalm and Silly Putty, and When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops, so I put them in alphabetical order and went with the first one. I still recall being delighted with his bit about how 'Fuck' is an all-purpose word. (I was a Literature major at the time.) (Decades later, I incorporated that idea into Jane Smith's Translation Dictionary.) But he's got so much good stuff… Yes, he sometimes crosses the line from being amused at stupidity to being angry at it—but who wouldn't?
