"Infused with Carlin's trademark irreverent humor and acerbic cultural observations, WHEN WILL JESUS BRING THE PORK CHOPS? offers an opinion on everything from evasive euphemistic language to politicians, to the media to dead people. The thinking person's comic who uses words as weapons, Carlin puts voice to issues that capture the modern imagination. For instance, why are there Ten Commandments? Are UFOs real? What will the future really be like? About the battle of the sexes, he asserts that all one needs to know about men and women is that women are crazy, and men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid. Carlin's razor-sharp observations will leave you laughing out loud" -- container.… (mere)

I remember some lame TV series on late at night that starred George Carlin so it with a pleasant surprise that I found his books really funny.

Maybe not to everyone’s taste but he certainly never shied away from saying it like it is.

Both funny, poignant and perceptive.

One of the ones I remember is “there are no homeless people in America, only houseless people”

—————– from Napalm and Silly Putty ——————–
Recently I came across a statistic published by the Population Reference Bureau in Washington. It stated that as of 1995 the number of people who had lived on earth was 105,472,380,169. The figure was based on the assumption that “the first two people” had emerged in 50,000 B.C. So I did a little arithmetic of my own, and I’ve concluded that as of 1995 there had been over 987 trillion bowel movements. I was very conservative: I assumed a mere thirty-year life span and only six bowel movements per week. Still, it means that at this point there have been almost 1 quadrillion human bowel movements and most of them occurred before people had anything to read. These are the kinds of thoughts that kept me from moving quickly up the corporate ladder.

Everyone should have one of his books in the toilet. ( )

Although Carlin was a great comedian, this book (as a whole) is not. Carlin's remarks on language are smart, interesting and to the point, much like his stand up. But in between those chapters there are many filler pages, some with funny comments, some with dull ideas. Mostly dull ones.

I believe this book would be a lot better as a shorter set of chapters dealing only with euphemisms, use of language in some circumstances and "my ideas on stuff". The book is a lot slower because of this fluff, which is completely different from Carlin's actual performances. ( )

I never thought of Carlin as a mere comedian so much as our society's archetypal comic curmudgeon. Our society takes itself way to serious and needs a comic curmudgeon to take the piss out of us. We need a replacement for Carlin fast, the egos of the politically correct police are not being pruned with his humor and cutting commentary. That being said Carlin is better in stand up than in print, but this book is still funny. ( )

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."
