Synopsis

Kinky Friedman is known for many things. He's the irrepressible future Governor of Texas. He is the "oldest Jew in Texas who doesn't own real estate." And he is notorious for his outrageous one-liners. Cowboy Logic is a distillation of the very best. Complimenting Kinky's timeless maxims are illustrations by the brilliant Ace Reid.
 
Kinky's "Little Red Book" is a compilation of his hilarious, insightful, and raunchy one-liners. Organized into sections including: Cowboy Logic; Things You Would Never Hear a Real Texan Say; Blessings, Curses, & Other Observations on the Condition of Our Condition; All Politics is Yokel; Kinky on Kinky; The Continuing Adventures of God & Man; Treasures & Pleasures; Advice to People Who Are Happier Than I am; The Great State of Texas; Love, Marriage & Other Hopeless Causes; Writing for Fun & Prophet; and Animal Crackers.
 
Some of Kinky's bon mots include:
 
There's a fine line between fiction and non-fiction and I believe I snorted it in 1976.
 
When the horse dies--get off.
 
Always respect your superiors, if you have any.
 
Where there's a will, there's a lawyer.
 
A happy childhood is the worst possible preparation for life.
 
Trust me. I'm a Jew. I'll hire good people.
 
Happiness is a moving target.
 
As the old cowboy philosophy of life sums it up "Hang on tight, spur hard, and let'er buck."
