    schema:description "Kinky Friedman, who would be our contemporary Will Rogers if Will Rogers had been Jewish, smoked cigars, and foolish enough to believe he could govern the great state of Texas, returns with this collection of hilariously raunchy, sometimes poignant, and always insightful essays. With fearless wit and wisdom born from many a late night's experience, Kinky offers both pearls and cowpats that touch on life, death, and everything in between. Considering the current predicament of our nation and the world at large, the question is, "What would Kinky do?" His answers invoke Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Judy Garland, George bush, and other cultural touchstones; reflect on Texas etiquette, smoking in bars, mullet haircuts, immigration policy, and how Don Imus died for our sins; and advise on how to handle a nonstop talker ona long flight, how to deliver the perfect air kiss, and what to do when a redneck hollers, "Hey y'all, watch this!" Whether he's "the new Mark Twain", in a class with Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, Will Rogers, and, yes, Henny Youngman, "a Texas legend", or "the Mother Teresa of literature", Kinky Friedman is an outrageously funny and uncommonly smart observer of our common predicament: life and what to do about it."@en ;
