You Might Be a Stiffneck If
Author pokes fun at ‘stiff-necks’ Author and humorist Tony H. Sierk gets laughs with his book, ‘You Might Be a Stiff-Neck If’ BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – Snooty, uppity, snobbish – these are just some of the words that author Tony H. Sierk offers as a synonym to “stiff-neck.” In his humor book “You Might Be a Stiffneck If” (published by AuthorHouse), he takes a lighthearted poke at the smug and uptight, proving that laughter really is the best medicine. Inspired by Jeff Foxworthy's “You Might Be a Redneck If” and the recent housing market crash, Sierk’s book takes a comical look at a recognizable American subculture. An excerpt from “You Might Be a Stiffneck If”: You insist on wearing your mink coat to the flea market to show off, and it’s 95 degrees outside! You insist on having the Wall Street Journal nearby, even in the Jacuzzi, because it makes you look important. “In the last 15 or 20 years, we have seen a rapid growth in our society of stiff-necks, partly in response to the large amounts of money made in the stock market,” explains Sierk. “I felt it was bout time to poke fun at them because there are many things to laugh at – as this book points out.” Featuring cartoons and accompanying jokes, “You Might Be a Stiff-Neck If” is a feisty read. It is also, notes Sierk, constantly relevant. “We recently had a presidential candidate – Mitt Romney – who was the ultra stiff-neck,” he jokes. “They are always in the news.” An excerpt from the book’s forward, written by comedian Jonathan Winters: Tony Sierk’s Stiff Neck book and illustrations will arouse you and tickle your funny bone. He sheds light and insight and helps you see funny and zany behavior traits of snobbish and prudish citizens in our culture! Even Maude Frickert would clean her eye glasses to get a closer look at the drawings and jokes. This book is a barrel of laughs and belongs in every collection of zany humor!
