"Learning to Talk More Gooder Fastly" is another essential primer if you want to learn to talk "gooder redneck." It's filled with useful words such as 'canter,' as in "Canter sister watch the baby?" and the all important 'scholar' -- "Scholar after we've had a few more drinks."

P.S.: Foxworthy's past releases in this series have generally reviewed positively and I am surprised to see only negative reviews for this book. It's another fine installment in the series -- I don't see what's wrong with it. The definitions *are* funny, and the style and humor are the same as the past books.
