Scuse Me While I Whip This Out: Reflections on Country Singers, Presidents, and Other Troublemakers


Scuse Me While I Whip This Out: Reflections on Country Singers, Presidents, and Other Troublemakers Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kinky Friedman is back with 'Scuse Me While I Whip This Out, and gets it on with all manner of egos. In this collection of twisted takes on life, the Kinkster gives us funny, irreverent, and insightful looks at outsized personalities, from people he's known — Bill Clinton and George W. to Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan, not to mention Joseph Heller and Don Imus — to people he's known in spirit — Moses, Jesus, Jack Ruby, and Hank Williams. With his meditations on subjects ranging from sleeping at the White House to marriage, his pets, fishing in Borneo, country music, cigars, and the tribulations of possessing talent, Kinky doesn't deny us the "flashes of brilliance and laugh-out-loud observations"* that are present in all his other work.

Hilarious and irreverent, and passionately twisted, 'Scuse Me While I Whip This Out reads as if it were written by a slightly ill modern-day Mark Twain.

About the Author

Kinky Friedman is the author of Kinky Friedman's Guide to Texas Etiquette and the novel Kill Two Birds & Get Stoned as well as seventeen mysteries whose main character is Kinky Friedman. He lives with five dogs, three donkeys, one armadillo, a million hummingbirds, and a much-used Smith Corona typewriter on a ranch in the Texas Hill Country. With any luck, he'll be the next governor of the state of Texas.
