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
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. 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.

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. 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. 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. 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.
