Swimming is not a sport. Swimming is a way to keep from drowning. Is George Carling one of the best American comedians ever? He raised issues that most would not dare mention. He acknowledged the elephant in the living room. Provoked the powers that be. Probably even the best. See 1 question about Brain Droppings….
Lists with This Book. Feb 27, Mousetrap rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was in my high school English class, when our instructor wanted us to choose a book to read, and afterwards, write the author with questions that came up during the reading. I chose “Brain Droppings” as I enjoyed George Carlin’s stand-up routine and had seen him live before. The book was hilarious, as expected. After reading, I brrain Mr. Carlin with a series of questions that came up during the reading.
I did not hear back from him during the school year, which was fine, according to our teache I was in my high school English class, when our brqin wanted us to choose a book to read, and afterwards, write the author with questions that came up during the reading. I did not hear back from him during the ddroppings year, which was fine, according to our teacher, and soon summer began. It was a random day in July that same year when I opened my mailbox, and I had a large envelope from varlin Carlin Productions”.
Inside, I found a picture of George that was autographed as such, “Too many questions, George Carlin”. I cannot think of a carpin fitting response. View all 3 comments. Jul 06, dara rated it really droppongs it Shelves: You got your stuff with you? I’ll bet you do. Guys have stuff in their pockets; women have stuff in their purses.
Of course, carin women have pockets, and some guys have purses. There’s all different ways of carryin’ your stuff. Then there’s all the stuff you have in your car. You got stuff in the trunk.
Just in case you wind up barefoot on the highway some night. And you’ve got other stuff in your car. In the glove box.
Stuff you might need in a hurry: So stuff is important. You gotta take care of your stuff. Droppinsg gotta have a place for your stuff. Everybody’s gotta have a place for their stuff.
That’s what life is all about, tryin’ to find a place for your stuff!
That’s all your house is: If you didn’t have so much stuff, you wouldn’t need a house. You could just walk around all the time. A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it. You can see that when you’re taking off in an airplane. You look down and see all the little piles of stuff. Everybody’s got his own little pile of stuff. And they lock it up! Wouldn’t want somebody to come by and take some of your stuff.
They don’t bother with that crap you’re saving. Ain’t nobody interested in your fourth-grade arithmetic papers. National Geographicscommemorative plates, your prize collection of Navajo underwear; they’re not interested. They just want the good stuff; the shiny stuff; the electronic stuff. So when you get right down to it, your house is nothing more than a place to keep your stuff. Tryin’ to get more stuff. Stuff you don’t want, stuff you don’t need, stuff that’s poorly made, stuff that’s overpriced.
Even stuff you can’t afford! Gotta keep on gettin’ more stuff. Otherwise someone else might wind up with more stuff.
Can’t let that happen. Gotta have the most stuff. So you keep gettin’ more and more stuff, and puttin’ it in different places. In the closets, in the attic, in the basement, in the garage.
And there might even be some stuff you left at your parents’ house: Actually, your parents threw that stuff out drpopings ago. So now you got a houseful of stuff.
And, even though you might like your house, you gotta move. Gotta get a bigger house. Or maybe, put some of your stuff in storage. There’s droppungs whole industry based on keepin’ an eye on other people’s stuff. Or maybe you could sell some of your stuff.

Have a yard sale, have a garage sale! Some people drive around all weekend just lookin’ for garage sales. They don’t have enough of their own stuff, they wanna buy other people’s stuff.
Or you could take your stuff to the swap meet, the flea market, the rummage sale, or the auction. There’s a lotta ways to get rid of stuff. You can even give your stuff away. The Salvation Army and Goodwill will actually come to your house and pick up your stuff and give it to people who don’t have much carllin.
