Once you step into the strange and irreverent world of award-winning humorist Mike Ball, you won't want to leave. Like that cool neighbor who doesn't seem to mind the kids cutting through his yard, Mike invites you sit a while and chat on the front porch. He shares his family, his life, and his screwball sense of humor in intimate snippets that sometimes give you a peek at his "sensitive side."
He banters about eggnog, pirates, plumbing, pets, speedboats, Bill O'Reilly, Snow Days, Craigslist, dogs, cats, seagulls, beer, hot sauce, Japan, football, turkeys, and guitars. He can have you laughing with him one moment, then wiping away tears in the next paragraph.
So if you've ever spent a sleepless night thinking about the pivotal role Tater Mitts are destined to play in our modern world, you need to read this book.
If you've ever wondered why a woman would want her hair to smell like pomegranate, rather than something that would interest a man (like bratwurst) you need to read this book.
If you've ever marveled at how a columnist can seemingly maintain focus and professional discipine in the face of a boatload of friends taste-testing beers of all nations, you need to read this book.
If you've ever considered how a guardian angel might feel about being assigned to take care of a guy who is a total jerk, you need to read this book.
Look, do yourself a favor - just read the &#@* book.
