Another chukleworthy episode of Tweep Nation. Our guest today is author and journalist, Donna Cavanagh. I’ve actually reviewed her book, Try and Avoid the Speed Bumps, on my website. I loved her book. She’s a funny lady so it’s no surprise that we share the same birthday ;). Topics discussed today include being a reverend, bellybutton displacement, Jesus and his robe and the godawful reality tv show Honey Boo Boo (I’m shuddering as I type this). One last thing—please, if you enjoy our show, vote for us in the Stitcher podcast awards. We are always hoping for more listeners, and we need your help :). Thanks guys, hope you enjoy this week’s show!
Donna’s the man! Well, maybe not the man, but The Woman. She’s hilarious! While reading this book, I pretty much had a smile on my face the whole time and I laughed out loud, or for you social media whizzes I lol’d. Her take on every-day situations, some of them ridiculous in themselves and just waiting for someone to take the piss (that’s an Australian term for those of you who don’t know—it means to make fun of) was freakin’ hilarious. She covers everything from avoiding speeding tickets to contemplating a career as an animal psychic. There is something here to make everyone laugh. The only thing I could say Donna has not done successfully is avoid those speed bumps, but she sure bounces over them in style.
I gave it 5 big, round… speed bumps.
