George Carlin - Brain Droppings

George Carlin - Brain Droppings

I felt I needed to recommend something George Carlin related because he died yesterday. I am a big fan of his ever since I first saw his HBO special "Complaints and Grievances" at age 13. Carlin was one of the most influential people in my life and I regret the fact that I'll never get to see him in person. Brain Droppings was the first of Carlin's books I read and although it wasn't as funny as Napalm and Silly Putty it is still something to be treasured. Carlin would probably hate it if I said rest in peace so I'll end this recommendation in a way Carlin might have and just thank him for the good times.

  • Certainly one of the funniest movies ever made, but it also has an often overlooked, but tightly wound and very enjoyable plot. The dude just wants his rug back. Hilarity ensues.

This particular design has a silicone lid that securely attaches to the cup. The outside is matte and the inside is glazed. I prefer a version that Starbucks put out a few months ago. Their version is pretty much the same, but the outside is glazed (and of course has their logo) and the lid is plastic with a silicone liner to keep liquids sealed in. The key difference between the two is the price. "I Am Not A Paper Cup" is roughly $20 and the Starbucks version is $12. The upsides to either is that if you are a daily coffee drinker, you don't have to trash a paper cup and plastic lid every time you get take-out coffee. The downside is that both of them hold about 8 oz. - not favorable if you normally order a "grande" at Starbucks. Another issue for commuters is that it is not spill-proof or splash-proof. And finally, the Starbucks version CANNOT go into the microwave.
