Oct. 20, 2009 — -- He might seem unnerving and irreverent, disturbing and downright insane, but you've got to give Tracy Morgan credit: the man thinks like no one else ever to grace the face of the earth, past, present, and probably future.

In "I Am the New Black," the "30 Rock" mainstay reveals where he came from, how he rose through stand-up comedy's rough ranks to spend seven years on "Saturday Night Live," who, exactly, he really is, and where he's headed. To read the almost 200-page-thick tome, co-written with Anthony Bozza, is to trip down a path as strange as it is hilarious, as dark as it is uplifting.

But we're wasting words -- better to let the man speak. (And he did today, to, about his love for Wendys and how the new season of "30 Rock" promises to be as "funny, funny, funny" as the last one, all while walking through a revolving door in the same compartment as this reporter.)

Below, check out the 15 most shocking, for myriad reasons, bits from "I Am the New Black." To relish the full ride -- including many more passages that can't be posted here -- pick up the paper copy, in bookstores today.

WARNING: Explicit Content Follows

1. On using humor as armor: "This mouth of mine and my goofy face have kept me from getting shot many times, particularly that one time when I stole a drug dealer's girl."

2. On hating ex "SNL" cast members: "I had my finger on the pulse of urban comedy, but when I brought my act to 'SNL,' those motherf*****s just felt bad for me. None of the cast i came up with saw this future for me. No, sir. All i have to say about that is, where's Chris Katan now? Where's Cheri Oteri now? That b***h can't even get arrested. ... It's all right; I don't mind. It's hard to get mainstream America to catch up. Mainstream America has just learned the words to Sugarhill's 'Rapper's Delight'! And we don't do that s*** no more! Jay-Z and Lil Wayne don't sound like that! No one sounds like that no more!"
