Two Funny Not To Share!

Oh, some people are so clever! F.L.Flower was certainly on the ball. After all timing is everything and “Fowler” jumped right on the Fifty Shades craze and ran with it! Don’t you just love the bound and tied chicken on the cover of this book!  Here is a taste of what you will find inside of this “seductive” cook book which promises to “make every dinner a turn-on”. Dripping Thighs, Sticky Chicken Fingers, Bacon-Bound Wings,  Learning-to-Truss-You Chicken  and Mustard-Spanked Chicken. How many brides to be do you think will be receiving this book at their next shower?

“”Like so many others, Fifty Shades of Grey resonated for me,” the writer – working under the pen name FL Fowler – tells PEOPLE in an email. “It evoked something I’d never been able to express. Then one day as I was tying up the ankles of a chicken for roasting, I realized why some of the scenes in the book were so strikingly familiar. It turns out I’ve been practicing BDSM for years – but with poultry.”

Fifty Shades of Bacon looks tame compared to the bound chicken cover and  according to customer reviews it has some really good recipes for bacon lovers. There are recipes for everything from bacon bits to bacon ice cream (which I put in the same category as garlic ice cream….Why?) Now the bacon mac and cheese….that sounds good!

If you have an idea for a Fifty Shades book, you better start writing today!

Fifty Shades Of GREY

Amazing! This guy looks exactly like the Christian Grey in my head! Not at all like my hairdresser! Darn!

Thank you Ed Steiner for your creative cartoon! Videos, cartoons……what is next? I shudder to think!

Fifty Shades Of Grey: To Read Or Not To Read! Help Me Decide!

Filed under: Book Discussions,Fifty Shade of Grey — susanbright @ 10:38 am

It is all I hear about! Fifty Shades of Grey! Everywhere I go women are talking about it. The other day I treated myself to a pedicure, a place where I like to sit quietly, relax and read my book. Impossible! The other three women could not stop talking about Christian Grey. Clearly I was not going to get any reading done so I sat back, closed my eyes and listened. Personally I think there should be a sign on the wall titled Proper Pedicure Etiquette and number one on the list would be PLEASE TALK QUIETLY, but that is a whole other story!

These woman were in love with Fifty Shades, or perhaps they were in love with Grey himself! Apparently he was gorgeous, charming, hot! They couldn’t put the books down. They were addicting, erotic, magical, riveting, suspenseful and even romantic. They even described it as a study in human behavior.

Is this the same book that my fellow book club friend described as trash, porn, boring, stupid and poorly written? One day I decide to read it, the next say NO Way! I am fickled! What should I do. Should I download it on my kindle where it will be accessible to my 28-year-old daughter, my son’s 26-year-old girlfriend and my 80+ year old mother? Help me decide!
