How Big 'a Boy Are Ya?, Vol. 6

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Well, life just doesn't get any easier for the ever-beleaguered Roy D. Mercer. On Volume 6 of his continuing HOW BIG'A BOY ARE YA? series, Roy D. gets on the phone and takes on all manner of foe, real and imagined. As usual, the ol' boy stands up for what he knows is right and against anyone who dares dis his family members. Imagine the vitriol aimed at an appliance store salesman ("Spoilt Seed") who sold Roy D.'s sister-in-law a freezer that malfunctioned, spoiling a bottle of frozen semen left there by Roy's late brother Bob for purposes of posthumous "artificial persimination." "I'll be on you like a rat on a Cheeto," Roy promises. How would you like to be the asphalt...

Well, life just doesn't get any easier for the ever-beleaguered Roy D. Mercer. On Volume 6 of his continuing HOW BIG'A BOY ARE YA? series, Roy D. gets on the phone and takes on all manner of foe, real and imagined. As usual, the ol' boy stands up for what he knows is right and against anyone who dares dis his family members. Imagine the vitriol aimed at an appliance store salesman ("Spoilt Seed") who sold Roy D.'s sister-in-law a freezer that malfunctioned, spoiling a bottle of frozen semen left there by Roy's late brother Bob for purposes of posthumous "artificial persimination." "I'll be on you like a rat on a Cheeto," Roy promises. How would you like to be the asphalt company that covered up the grave of Meow Tse-Tung, a pet cat belonging to Roy's stepdaugther Lateesha, when it paved Roy D.'s driveway? "I'm gonna get ready to kick somebody's ass so hard they'll be able to taste shoe polish," Roy advises the hapless soul on the other end of the line. As an extra bonus, this volume includes a 24-second answering machine greeting featuring Roy D., and a musical track, "How Big'A Boy Are Ya?," featuring Charlie Daniels. As usual, this volume of HOW BIG'A BOY ARE YA? should serve as inspiration for those woebegone souls who feel beat down by the indignities of everyday life. Roy D. Mercer speaks for the real America. By God.
All Music Guide - Steve Huey
How Big'A Boy Are Ya? Roy D. Mercer poses the question for a sixth time, and the results are no less hilarious than the first time it escaped his lips. This one features Mercer's first-ever single/video, and of course, it's the title track, now a song featuring Charlie Daniels. Another new feature on Vol. 6 is the "Roy D. Mercer Answering Machine Message," which fans can put on their own answering machines for a hilarious change of pace. But of course, the centerpiece is the prank-call comedy, and it's -- as David Byrne once said -- the same as it ever was. Which is to say, outrageously funny. You just don't hear things like "Bowling Ball Fungus," "Bury'd Cat," and "Stuper Glue" every day.
