    I got this for my mother for Christmas (nobody tell her), and decided to read it before wrapping it up. I'm glad I did, but I hope she doesn't mind reading a book that someone has already looked at.This contains a lot of sayings I actually use myself, or variations on them, though I reckon it'd be a novelty for anyone who didn't spend a lot of time in some rural settings. It also had a ton that I'd never heard before, as well as a few that that were too corny, even for me.There are some question [...]

    What can you say about a book of country sayings? Well if you like homespun wisdom and wit then belly up to the trough and enjoy. Now My copy is different from this one in that its title is Butter My Butt and Call Me a Biscuit And You're the Butter on My Biscuit. Still it is the same just more of it. What I liked best is it made me laugh as I read it. To anyone, who likes to laugh and think how true, then this is the book for you.

    I loved this book. It was lighthearted, fun, silly, and just warmed my spirit. I’m definitely going to use some of these sayings in my own vocabulary.

    Loved it! Had some good ol' country sayings! I am Charleston Girl so some of these I use or have heard but some I have not. A lot of them will make you laugh and some will just make you think. I like that they included some little short stories too!

    Some of these were so hilarious. There were anecdotes throughout that were pretty funny, too.The main problem was repeats. They weren't exact repeats, but when you replace one word with a similar one, then it's pretty much the same thing. Also, the 'hicks from the sticks' stereotype is embraced here, which isn't necessarily synonymous with 'country', so if that offends you, be wary.

    Fun, quick read. Never would have read this, I don think, if it wasn't for my dad. The sayings are great, but I adores the short stories. They always got a laugh out of me.

    EVERYONE needs this book to keep these Southern phrases alive. Perfect little addition to the coffee table or the "bathroom literature" selection on the back of the commode tank.

    If you need a beak from more serious works, spend an hour or so with this book. Brought forth a chuckle or two.
