When Will Jesus Bring The Porkchops by George Carlin

Wal-Mart is refusing to sell George Carlin’s new book “When Does Jesus Bring The Porkchops” in its stores, insisting that it would not appeal to a majority of its customers. Wal-Mart objects to the cover of the book, which depicts a parody of da Vinci’s The Last Supper with George Carlin, taking the place of one of the apostles, sitting next to an empty chair where the figure of Jesus is depicted in the original painting.

America (The Book) by John Stewart & The Daily Show

This comes only a few days after Wal-Mart banned Jon Stewart’s new book America (The Book) because it contained a faked nude photo of the members of the Supreme Court. Although the book includes cut-outs of judicial robes so that the reader can “restore their dignity,” Wal-Mart cancelled its order.

Wal-Mart will continue to sell both books through their web site. Wal-Mart spokeswoman Karen Burk insists that people who buy products from Wal-Mart online are a “different audience.”

Personally, I think Wal-Mart needs to find a sense of humor. Why in hell did America find a collective need to become so serious? Has political correctness completely destroyed our ability to laugh at ourselves?

Carlin spokesman Jeff Abraham said

They did not like the cover [of the Carlin book] because it was a parody. George attacks everything in this book, but it does not have any nude photos. He said he thought the title would offend everyone.

Good call, George! 😆
