Chili Dawgs Always Bark at Night
"A first-rate irascible American humorist...This man Grizzard deserves high honors in the field of fun."
ATLANTA JOURNAL & CONSTITUTION
In his twelfth collection of outrageous writings, he's kinder. He's gentler. He's one unusual American with a whole lot to say about the things that vex us all: like Rice Krispies, funeral preaching, news that's unfit to print (or even think about for that matter), uncommon dawg tales, and the unavaoidable light at the end of the tunnel.

My name is "Bubba" and "Let's Get off Bubba's Back" written in April 1987 was about me. Lewis and I met at a golf tournament in Statesboro, GA called The Southeastern Invitational which is played the weekend following Mhe Masters. It was early in the ecocktail party when we met, and I ask Lewis, "What are we going to do with these carpetbaggers coming down here telling us how to do things?" Lewis replied, "Tell me more." Following a lively discussion, Lewis asked, "Would you like to be in the paper?" When I replied in the affirmative, Lewis asked that I write my contact information on a cocktail napkin. He said he would be in touch with me. Well, he didn't call, and a friend called about two weeks later asking if I had been talking with Lewis Grizzard recently. Everyone in the company, Rich-SeaPak Corporation, as well as several food brokers I worked with knew what had been going on with a newly hired Senior Vice President and me about my nickname. Lewis had writen and published a column entitled, "Let's Get off Bubba's Back." He later mentioned he had not heard from a fellow named "Bubba" he had once writen about when writing another book. I attempted to get in touch with Lewis between Christmas and New Years 1993 before he died in March 1994. Someone signed for and received the letter sent to his office, but I never heard from him. I wanted to get his opinion about Kay Bailey Hutchinson's interview on "Crossfire." Lewis had been on before Mrs. Hutchinson. When asked about his having a little fun with those named '"Bubba", Lewis responded, "Oh, but I think you are mistaken about the context. I rise in defense of those named "Bubba." They went to commercial and when the program resumed, the next guest was Kay Bailey Hutchinson. This Texan didn't sound like a guy named "Bubba" would have a chance to be her friend.
Lewis was just getting started. His humor and wisdom would have gotten better and better as he got older and older.
