'When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?' By George Carlin
Just one week after instituting a ban on The Daily Show's satirical tome America (The Book), the retail giant returned its order of 3,500 copies of comedian George Carlin's book When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?. The cover of the book had a painting recreating The Last Supper—except Jesus' seat is empty, and Carlin (an atheist) seated next to it raising an eyebrow. Walmart representatives blamed the whole thing on an ordering mishap. "We did not order this book. It was shipped to us in error by one of our distributors," Walmart spokeswoman Karen Burk told The New York Post.
