Book Review: Amish Scrambled Eggs with Humor: Bed-and-Breakfast Fables by Joseph “Chool” Crawshaw (four stars)
“If you think you’re too small to make a difference, you haven’t been in bed with a mosquito.”
As the title suggests, this features short anecdotes gleaned from the author’s many years running a B&B in Amish Pennsylvania. The central theme is the culture clash between the attitudes and activities of Old Order Amish and Crawshaw and his English (anyone not Amish) guests.
“Sixteen years after that incident, the floor of the spring wagon is still wet.”
The humor is drool; that is, it won’t appeal to all, but it caused my wife to laugh aloud several times. While Joe decries the lewd connect of much television material, many of his stories revolve around innuendo and bodily functions. Suggestion: If you like practical jokes, book into Frogtown Acres.
“Wow, did anyone see the beautiful sunset this morning?”
Sounds like an humorous read. Thanks for letting us know.
