Sorry folks...I loved George's final book. I thought his live and recorded performances were great. However, "When WIll Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?" was a major disappointment in my view. There are some wonderful moments in the book -- the various sections on euphamisms is very thought provoking and humorous in describing the way we've PC'd language to not offend anyone.

A good part of the book is filled with vulgar, obscenity-laden, and insensitive rants by a person who had a mastery of the English language and the ability get people to think. There are sections in this book where he shows some of his lengendary satire and sarcasm, but there was just too many other cases where he just ranted.

I have an older book of Carlin's (Napalm and Silly Putty) that I am slated to read. I am hoping that this book reads a lot better than this disappointing effort. It's not George.
