Description (Publisher Website)
The only thing funnier than marriage is Rick and Bubba talkin' about it!

Rick and Bubba are at it again, and this time it is all about marriage. Addressing such topics as apologizing (The Ten Worst Ways to Say I’m Sorry), communication (Grunting Is Not a Language), date nights (Worst Date Nights in History), finances (I Thought You Paid the Gas Bill), and playing sports together (I Did Too Let You Win), the two "sexiest fat men alive" will have couples everywhere tied in knots. With stories, top ten lists, and even a bonus addendum of their oft mentioned, "The Book of Blame," this humorous look at marriage is long overdue. This book will revolutionize your way of looking at married life. And it might just remind you all over again why you fell in love in the first place.

Not knowing who the author's of this book were, I really had no idea what to expect. I have to say that I laughed all the way through this book. There is so much wisdom and truth mixed in with the humor that it's wonderful for anyone who is married. although I'm not sure I'd recommend it for those about to be married.

Fans of the author's radio show will probably love this book. While I got a good laugh out of the book, the book focus's quite a bit on the concept of the wife always being right and the husband always being wrong. It also tends to portray women as nags. These are all jokes though and while it might get a bit old and tired, it's delivery is fairly funny. Probably most husbands would think it quite funny, wives possibly not so much.

To add to the fun, there is an accompanying CD that has highlights from Rick and Bubba's radio show.

One of the things that I really liked about this book though is that there were moments where the hilarity ended and some good stuff came out! For instance, in the chapter "Ball and Chain?" they talk about the fact that marriage is the opposite of a ball and chain, but instead is the opposite of being tied down and is in fact freedom. It is a wonderful description of marriage and the freedom you feel from trusting your spouse. These gems in the middle of all the 'good ol' boy humor" make this a worthwhile read.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
