Category – Humor Publication Date – October 01, 1991 It is never too late to read Lewis Grizzard, even though he is no longer with us he will live on in his articles and books. Grizzard was a true Southerner, raised in Georgia, and graduated from the University of Georgia. However, one does not have to be a Southerner, from the South, or from Georgia to appreciate his wit and sometimes an astute awareness of the world around him. He has written over 15 books and cut four comedy albums. Most of the material for them comes from the articles he wrote for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Even though he had a fear of flying, he was a frequent flyer traveling across the United States for public appearances. There was no subject that was sacred to Grizzard, he attacked all political parties, governments, education, and even his beloved University of Georgia, to say nothing of the, at the time, inept Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta Braves. He even took on both Ted Turner and Jane Fonda. Grizzard was not only funny but biting; if he thought that the situation warranted a sarcastic remark. In emphasizing his fear of flying he wrote, “Ever notice the first thing you see at an airport? It’s a big sign that says, Terminal”. How about The Lone Ranger, “Frankly I lost a lot of respect for The Lone Ranger when I found out what “kemo sabe” means – “sweetie pie”. All the stories are 1 or 2 pages long and can be put down and picked up without missing anything. The books are a great change of pace for those readers who need a break in their serious reading.

    The Mark Twain of my Generation I grew up reading Lewis Grizzard's daily newspaper column and I am a big fan of his books. You Can't Put No Boogie-Woogie on the King of Rock and Roll is a collection of his columns from the early 1990s. Some of these narratives have not aged well. After all, does anybody even remember Dan Quayle or Milli Vanilli? However, most are as spot on today as they were when written 30 years ago. Masculinity is a thing of the past, common sense is dead, and Lewis Grizzard i The Mark Twain of my Generation I grew up reading Lewis Grizzard's daily newspaper column and I am a big fan of his books.

Masculinity is a thing of the past, common sense is dead, and Lewis Grizzard is still hilarious. His Southern wit and charm will leave you laughing out loud.

    As a collection of humorous newspaper columns, many of which are about current events, it can seem outdated. And yet, some of his criticisms are still as relevant today as they were decades ago. I wish Grizzard were still around today.

    Had to read in small portions or the historical references that are repeating themselves today got to be too overwhelming. Does have some good parts that made me laugh.

    Collection of Grizzard's columns from the mid-90s. The inimitable humorist takes on everything from 90s music to The Donald, and delivers the goods with every one.

    This fell somewhere between 2 and 3 stars, close to 3 actually (for me). It was interesting also in that it was published in 1991 and we get to see a lot about the current events (wars, politician scandals, etc...) of the time. As I lived through them all (although I am quite a bit younger than the author)I got things a lot more than if you hadn't seen those events live (as it were). It is amazing though how times seem to mirror each other in some of the events then and now. Still, you get the hu This fell somewhere between 2 and 3 stars, close to 3 actually (for me).

It is amazing though how times seem to mirror each other in some of the events then and now. Still, you get the humor of things all the way through here. A lot are truths told in a humorous way for sure. One thing I have to mention. It bothered me a lot when reading the book. I kept waiting for Lewis Grizzard to make a joke of it somewhere in the many (quite a few, no lie) places he used it, to just be kept waiting. To be fair it may not have been him at all and some kind of auto correct when the book was edited. For those who have read it you probably already know. In many cases the word "write" was used but it apparently needed to say "right". As I said, I thought at first it was deliberate and he would make it into a joke. Not so it seems.

    I guress I have read every book Lewis Grizzard wrote, but i wasnt' keeping records then. I'm sure I have read this one before, too, but I I just reread it. It wasn't his very best work -- or maybe he's just better in short doses. I loved his regular columns in the Atlanta Journal and Constitution back in the 70s and 80s. All his books are collections of individual columns. He was a funny man. I guress I have read every book Lewis Grizzard wrote, but i wasnt' keeping records then.

    This was funny in a southern grits kind of way. You have to be from the south to appreciate some of Grizzard's humor and takes on life. This was funny in a southern grits kind of way. You have to be from the south to appreciate some of Grizzard's humor and takes on life.
