Rick and Bubba’s Big Honkin’ Book of Grub is a hilarious book about all things food. From diets and restaurants to mixed meats and less than contextual quotes from the Bible, Rick and Bubba share their insights, pet peeves, and self-declared days of food celebration. They certainly had me laughing all along the way.
This is a great book full of southern redneck humor. Rick and Bubba’s Big Honkin Book of Grub contains insights like why you should eat bacon, rules for church pot-luck, real tips on etiquette (like use only one fork and what foods you should eat with your hands) and the correct spelling of giblet (or is it jiblet?). They are not afraid to cover difficult issues and ask hard questions like, “Why isn’t spam on restaurant menus?” and the great dressing versus stuffing debate.
In a world full of diet books and exercise programs it’s good to sit back and laugh about food every now and then. I normally don’t read books like this, but was looking for something out of the ordinary. I’m glad I picked this one up. I needed a good laugh.
Is a great book for good laughs, but it doesn’t really stand out. I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates good southern Redneck humor. The retail price is $16.99 (Paperback), and is available at places like Amazon.com for $11.55. I gave it three stars.
