Publisher's Summary

He was the inventor of Past-Tense TV (featuring Got Smart, Father Knew Best, and It Was Left to Beaver); the tireless crusader for such charities as the Center for Research into the Heebie Jeebies, Children of Parents with Bad Teeth, and the State Hospital for Those Who Felt All Right About a Year Ago; founder of the George Carlin Book Club (top titles: How to Act Laid-Back During a Grease Fire, Fill Your Life with Croutons, and The Meaning of Corn); and the only social commentator with the guts to point out that "the day after tomorrow is the third day of the rest of your life."
Yes, George Carlin is here with more of what he did better than any other comic: uproarious observations, laser-targeted crankiness, linguistic legerdemain, and inspired weirdness. ("If the shoe fits, get another just like it." "When you sneeze, all the numbers in your head go up by one.") Napalm & Silly Putty is just what his fans have been waiting for—another generous helping of notions, nonsense, assertions, assumptions, mockery, merriment, silliness, sarcasm, and, to be sure, plenty of disturbing references and toxic alienation. George wouldn't have it any other way.

Absolutely Hilarious | Well Worth Buying!

If you could sum up Napalm and Silly Putty in three words, what would they be?

Hilarious, Comical and Humorous.

Who was your favorite character and why?

George Carlin, this is because he is the only character.... Well, he isn't exactly a character, since this book doesn't include any character... Only amazing, entertaining jokes.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The start... and I quote "I had an argument with my rice crispy's this morning, i distinctly heard 'Snap, Crackle, FUCK YOU'"

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and i did listen to it all in one sitting.
