Review: Rick and Bubba's Big Honkin' Book Of Grub

Book Description:

In Rick and Bubba’s Big Honkin’ Book of Grub, America’s sexiest fat men share wise observations and stories about grub as only they can tell them.

Rick and Bubba’s Big Honkin’ Book of Grub is exactly what a diet/recipe book should be—full of hilarious stories, good eating, and not a single mention of calories! New York Times bestselling authors Rick and Bubba are not ashamed to admit they eat for one reason and one reason only: they like the way food tastes. With family recipes from their wives Sherri and Betty (who have been keeping these two in grub for years) as well as the winning recipes from Rick and Bubba's Big Honkin’ Recipe Contest, this book is a keeper. So pull up a chair, grab a fork, and enjoy!
My Thoughts:
I thought this one was hilarious! Let me share a quote from the first page... "If you ask us, there's a reason that the first three letters of the word diet are d-i-e..."
My husband gave me a few weird looks while I was reading because the book had me chuckling.
The "story" is told by Rick with "interjections" by Bubba. It was an easy flowing type of book that made you feel like the narrator was just a friend talking to you.
I thought that it was also funny since they managed to mix food, religion, and politics. You're probably thinking that's got to be offensive, right? I personally didn't think so...I thought it was all in good fun.
Of course since this one is a "book of grub" they had several recipes that sounded really good. If your looking for a healthy type of book....stay away from this one LOL! But if your wanting a FUN Foodie book then you should pick this one up.
