Frankly, I was disappointed.

As a huge fan of both food and satire, I was expecting greatness. I expected too much.

"Food is like SEX, ha ha ha!"

There, toss in a bunch of profanity, and you have the majority of the material in this title. Yes, there are some pretty funny moments, but really not worth shoveling through the sophomoric and banal to find them. I'm no prude, but just like listening to someone who drops F-bombs every 3rd word, no matter how interesting the subject...it just gets old very quickly.

If you're the type that snickers whenever someone says crack, bone, or snatch...you'll probably love it.

Some jokes are carried on too long like it was a popular SNL skit that they beat into the ground. Best if read in small doses to maintain the humor and cheekiness otherwise your quickly conditioned to it and find it just oddly silly. There was a reason why Ruth was popular on Twitter where it could be digested quickly and appreciated amongst the more mundane posts from friends and self promotional farce of celebrities and politicians. Lets not even mention the price for so little amount of entertainment.

There were parts of this book that cracked me up, but it became pedantic and I got bored before I finished

Most of this book was mildly amusing to read the first time through it, but not one that generates belly laughs. It was better as a twitter feed, taken in short bursts.
