Kill Two Birds & Get Stoned (Friedman, Kinky)
2 journalers for this copy...
Musician/comedian/politico Kinky Friedman (of Kinky Friedman & the Texas Jewboys, and aka "the Asshole from El Paso") has written at least 16 books and has a wonderful, whacky sense of humour. One of his better known songs is "They Don't Make Jews Like Jesus Anymore". This book is from a LFL on Broadway Avenue in Toronto - the one between Bayview and Mt. Pleasant. We went to see Kinky about 5 years ago at Hugh's Room and true to form, before the gig, there was Kinky standing outside the venue, in his classic black outfit, big cigar glowing, shaking hands with people as they went in. It was a fun evening. In 2006, Friedman was one of two independent candidates who ran for Governor of Texas. He got 12.6% of the vote, placing fourth in the six-person race. 'Way to go, Kinky!

Picked this up at your meetup today. I ready another of Kinky Friedman's books years ago and it was terribly amusing. Looking forward to an entertaining read with this one!
