Humorist Jeanne Robertson has entertained audiences for five decades with her original, hilarious stories. In her new release, this "Grandma Gone Viral" with millions of views on YouTube shares some of her classic stories and introduces new ones. Jeanne's collection of stories, Don't Bungee Jump Naked and other important stuff is worth the time to sit, read and laugh.
A variety of stories included in this collection have served Jeanne well through the years. Most of these older stories have been updated for this book, often with little epilogues that provide, as Paul Harvey used to say, "the rest of the story." Other stories are based on events that happened recently. A few stories even appear for the first time.
All her favorite characters are featured, including Left Brain, Toni - Queen of Everything, "bestest" friend Norma Rose, son Beaver and Jane Tucker from NYC! Some new characters are also introduced - the toothpick man, the young entrepreneur, and a giant marmot - just to name a few.
What could possibly go wrong on a trip to Hawaii, an eight-day rafting trip through the Grand Canyon or a trip with your "bestest" friend to Las Vegas? Why shouldn't you send Left Brain to the grocery store, and how did son Beaver lose his car? Utilizing her charming southern writing style, her descriptive story-telling and her genuine, self-effacing humor, Jeanne provides the reader with answers to these questions and many more.
Get ready to laugh, and constantly be reminded to look for humor - everywhere.
