Back Cover / Inside Flap:"Being a Redneck has nothing to do with where you live. It's a state of mind, "a glorious absence of sophistication." Some of us live there, and some of us are simply on an extended vacation. So pull up a lawn chair, grab some ribs off the barbeque, and stay a while. You're in for a helluva good time."


Review:As a longtime Jeff Foxworthy fan, I've long since memorized my share of Redneck jokes and have watched more than a few of his TV and DVD specials. This book is chock full of his best stuff - plus a few stories that don't commonly make his stand-up routine.

Honestly, the only reason this fails to get 5 stars is because a few of the background stories just weren't...funny. Now, this is supposed to be autobiographical, and not all of life is funny...but some of the filler stories felt like just that - filler. But the rest? Top notch jokes that will have you turning the pages for more. I recommend!

If you have read or are planning to read this book, please make sure to stop back by and leave me a comment to let me know your own thoughts!

From my library to yours,
