    1. This is a nice collection of humorous essays, written by a guy who s seen and done all the sorts of stuff I should have seen and done before I married, had kids, and got old and crotchety.Highlights include a loving tribute to an unforgettable grandfather how to outsmart a bully some hilarious and touching confessions about old memories stirred up by Facebook friends mastering meditation to join the Fraternal Order of Enlightened Ones Booya I did it in a day, and it took you six years of sitting [...]

    2. The Fried Twinkie Manifesto had me both laughing out loud and crying The stories ranged from childhood adventures, to those about being an adult Many of the stories I could personally relate to or I knew someone who went through something similar But Ryan Moehring was able to articulate the humor and horror for those experiences far better and funnier than I ever could have Ryan has a very witty voice, and under the layers of all the humor lays a deeper understanding of what all the craziness me [...]

    3. Blegh Not a good writer No coherent thoughts or feel Mysogynistic comments at times when he s trying to be funny Super bummed to read this Skip this author and read Dave Hill or Sedaris if you want funny essays.

    4. I won this book from GoodReads and was excited to read it It is hilarious I actually found myself laughing out loud I will definitely be reading by Moehring.

    5. I picked this up because I like memoirs and I liked the title Straightforward autobiographical essays are interspersed with satirical pieces that tend to strike one note and hold it overly long Moehring has been compared to David Sedaris, and I guess Sedaris also writes some satirical fiction, although I prefer his autobiographical essays As far as comparisons go, Moehring reminds me of Josh Hanagarne The World s Strongest Librarian , for his honesty and self deprecating humor I warmed to Moehr [...]

    6. This book, and the author specifically, got increasingly obnoxious the I read I really just paged through the last half Less David Sedaris than conventional White Bro with tired cliche ideas about life The unfunny story he had rejected from The Onion and still thought fit to include in the book tells you everything you need to know Related I m very disappointed with Kindle Unlimited.

    7. Some of these short stories are laugh aloud funny Most are amusing and fun I think that Ryan Moehring aspires to be David Sedaris and he has some of those qualities but he s not there yet I do recommend the book.

    8. Very much enjoyed this memoir Reads like a casual conversation in a bar with a friend who always has a good story to tell Many times I laughed aloud, and I wonder if the author will try his hand at fiction.

    9. I gave this a fair shot I read through three chapters and 25% of the book Nothing about it was funny and I just can t waste my time when there are so many books I want to read I m glad I got this one for free.

    10. The Fried Twinkie Manifesto is absolutely hilarious, and incredibly thoughtful Be warned you will laugh so hard you ll be in tears, and then you will cry because you ll be so moved by the lessons illustrated through this collection of short stories.

    11. This book is hilarious Just my type of humor.I don t need to write a huge review because you will either read it, or you won t Either way, I think it was awesome.

    12. This collection of personal essays started off relatively strong I really enjoyed the first story, and also thought the Amber Anderson story was told well Unfortunately, as it progressed, it became really, really clear to me why this book was self published the author just doesn t have enough good material to fill out a whole book of personal essays Ultimately, with the exception of the first and third essays, the author didn t seem to have anything to say that hasn t already been said successf [...]

    13. I found this book to be not evocative of any of the authors mentioned in the description Robbins, Sedaris, and Vonnegut This was a bait and switch It tried to hard to funny It sort of screamed look at how banal yet interesting my life is, just like Sedaris It didn t need to do that The stories might have been good on their own merit if they were rounded out and complete Finally put it down 66% through.

    14. I read this because I m obsessed with Augustine Burroughs and I heard Ryan Moehring is similar I d somewhat agree There were a few odd moments in his life he wrote about that would embarrass most people, and I did laugh My favorite thing about this memoir is his beliefs on religion because ours are the same If refreshing when someone can find the words to explain how you feel I m not good with words Ha ha

    15. I will give this one a solid 3.5 Some of the stories made me laugh out loud and I found the writing style to be easy to read Theh author tries a little too hard to be meaningful than I would have liked, especially in the final story It is a challenge to buy into his melancholoic walk down memory lane after his story about foreskins.

    16. Most of this the essays in this book or mediocre at best The story about his grandfather Fatman and Robbin is my favorite and I loved it Without that, the I would have given this book one start because some of the essays are boring and not very good and there are many places where it s just flat out misogynistic No thanks.

    17. Waste of timeI read this book off and on for a while It didn t hold my interest enough that I would be anxious to read , but enough to finish it It s not a well written book, part of it is humorous, other parts are lame Not a book I would recommend.

    18. I ll begin by saying that this book isn t for everyone I am part of the intended audience, being as how I am in my 30 s and I do not have an aversion to crude language Great first book, despite the writing requiring a bit of polishing I look forward to seeing of this author.

    19. Generally enjoyable It reads kind of like David Sedaris, but much crude That is not to say that I had a problem with crude, it is a lot of fun Basically, just a book of fun biographical sketches.

    20. I received this book through a giveaway The title hooked me I enjoyed the stories, they were fun and had me chuckling Though the end of the stories always tied back to their beginning, I sometimes was vaguely anxious in the middle when the story seemed to wander.

    21. LOVED this book Hilarious I laughed out loud It is completely inappropriate for those with modest sensibilities, but terribly funny What an interesting adventure this man s life if, even if only half of it it true.

    22. I just could not get into this book I can t say that it s bad, it just couldn t grab and hold my attention I couldn t even finish reading the book.

    23. Funny and full of heartI will admit, I wasn t immediately taken by this book but after a few chapters it grew on me Such honest humor and it gets better with every chapter.

    24. Easy readMildly offensive at some points but over all a a pretty Sunnybrook Easy to read and relax with Not quite as good as david Sedaris books

    25. Loved this book My friend called me up and attempted to read parts of it aloud She was laughing so hard she couldn t I got the book and read and laughed even harder

    26. Good bookWas a quick easy read, very cute great beach book I like it that he didn t hold anything back very honest
