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.'
