Brain Droppings is filled with stand-up comedy material by George Carlin, which includes jokes, assumptions, notions and disturbing references.
In Brain Droppings, the author states the seven things that he is tired of tolerating. He says that people who smoke pipes canât be very intelligent as they have fire sticking out of their mouth. He also complains about car alarms. If these alarms didn't exist, then carjackings would actually decrease. Carlin also has a strong dislike for bearded men and those who walk around listening to their walkmans. Like most people, he also hates having to be put on hold when calling customer care. Furthermore, readers will giggle at how the comedian complains about books that describe clouds. Who cares what a cloud looks like?
Finally, Carlin states that he finds it very difficult to find clothes that don't have sayings, slogans and brand names printed on them. In Brain Droppings, readers will also get to know about the kinds of people that the author thinks need to be phased out. Some of them include guys who wink when they're kidding or people who name their cars or those who propose on the giant screen at a sports stadium. Fans of Carlin will also come across complete versions of two of his most famous monologues, Baseball and Football and A Place for My Stuff.
This book has elements of comedy, sarcasm, silliness, satire, ridicule and mockery. Brain Droppings was published by Hyperion in 1998. It is available in paperback.
