 Breakfast, bus, beer, Blackpool…bust!
The Christmas club was a great success, the Christmas club social evening passed by with only one incident and Willie, Arthur and Eustace were feeling pretty good about themselves; especially Eustace who, on the back of that one incident, was beginning to have a turnaround in his life.

But has Eustace bitten off more than he can chew when he decides he is going to organise the Murgatroyd mill trip to Blackpool? He thinks not, but then…it is Eustace.

The normally down-trodden, stuttering, bumbling fool that is Eustace is bound to stumble his way through this minefield of potential problems but, as usual, he has his friends Willie and Arthur to back him up. But could that make things worse?

If organising the trip wasn’t hard enough, imagine the things that could go wrong with a bus full of drunken mill workers enjoying the delights of sunny Blackpool.

Liaisons with ‘ladies’ on another trip?
Escaping the clutches of Madame Zsa Zsa?
Kidnapping a donkey?
Crashing the bus?

How is Eustace and his friends going to get out of this series of mishaps? After all, they are responsible and the police are always involved…

About the author

 Tall, thin and handsome, well educated and extremely suave…well actually this is pure fantasy, just like his writing. In fact he’s short, fat, ugly and an educational failure (in his own words).

Having spent his entire working life as an engineer to the textile trade, he decided to write about some of the characters he had met and their problems. Actually, the personal bit is fantasy again; in fact, it’s all somewhere in between.
Any reference to any person dead or not living is purely coincidental.

In these personal essays, the hilarious comedian and Chelsea Lately host reflects on family, love life, and the absurdities of adulthood with "cheeky candor" and signature wit (Philadelphia Inquirer).
Life doesn't get more hilarious than when Chelsea Handler takes aim with her irreverent wit. Who else would send all-staff emails to smoke out the dumbest people on her show? Now, in this new collection of original essays, the #1 bestselling author of Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea delivers one laugh-out-loud moment after another as she sets her sights on the ridiculous side of childhood, adulthood, and daughterhood.
Family moments are fair game, whether it's writing a report on Reaganomics to earn a Cabbage Patch doll, or teaching her father social graces by ordering him to stay indoors. It's open season on her love life, from playing a prank on her boyfriend (using a ravioli, a fake autopsy, and the Santa Monica pier) to adopting a dog so she can snuggle with someone who doesn't talk. And everyone better duck for cover when her beach vacation turns into matchmaking gone wild. Outrageously funny and deliciously wicked, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang is good good good good!
Chelsea Handler on . . .Being unpopular: "My parents couldn't have been more unreasonable when it came to fads or clothes that weren't purchased at a pharmacy." Living with her boyfriend: "He's similar to a large toddler, the only difference being he doesn't cry when he wakes up."Appreciating her brother: "He's a certified public accountant, and I have a real life."Arm-wrestling a maid of honor: "It wasn't her strength that intimidated me. It was the starry way her eyes focused on me, like Mike Tyson getting ready to feed."
On the heels of George Carlin's #1 New York Times bestseller Napalm & Silly Putty comes When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?--infused with Carlin's trademark irreverent humor and biting cultural observations.

Here we go again . . . George Carlin's hilarious When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops? offers his cutting-edge opinions and observational humor on everything from evasive euphemistic language to politicians to the media to dead people. Nothing and no one is safe!

Despite the current climate of political correctness, Carlin is not afraid to take on controversial topics:

Carlin on the media: The media comprises equal parts business, politics, advertising, public relations, and show business. Nice combination. Enough bull for Texas to open a chain of branch offices. Carlin on the battle of the sexes: Here's all you have to know about men and women: women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid. Carlin on hygiene: When did they pass a law that says the people who make my sandwich have to be wearing gloves? I'm not comfortable with this. I don't want glove residue all over my food; it's not sanitary. Who knows where these gloves have been? Carlin on evasive language: Just to demonstrate how far using euphemisms in language has gone, some psychologists are now actually referring to ugly people as those with "severe appearance deficits." Hey, Doctor. How's that for "denial"? Carlin on politics: No self-respecting politician would ever admit to working in the government. They prefer to think of themselves "serving the nation." To help visualize the service they provide the country, you may wish to picture the things that take place on a stud farm.The thinking person's comic who uses words as weapons, Carlin puts voice to issues that capture the modern imagination. For instance, why are there Ten Commandments? Are UFOs real? What will the future really be like? This brand-new collection tackles all that and more.

In When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops? Carlin's razor-sharp observations demolish everyday values and leave you laughing out loud--delivering exactly what his countless fans have been waiting for.
