When Jeff Foxworthy first emerged into the public consciousness, his regular-guy persona and neo-HEE HAW humor seemed unlikely for the makings of the biggest-selling comedy album of all time (YOU MIGHT BE A REDNECK IF?). Of course, these qualities are just what make him so accessible--while critics continue to underestimate the smarts that go into creating his brand of gloriously dumb jokes, the small-town Georgia boy just keeps getting better. Like Bill Cosby and Bernie Mac, the key to Foxworthy's success is his ability to describe the ridiculousness of life's everyday foibles with vivid detail and all-inclusive charm. That the comic manages to put a new spin on tried-and-true topics such as rental cars and going to the grocery store is no mean feat. One listen to HAVE YOUR LOVED ONES SPAYED OR NEUTERED reveals a keen cultural observer who always laughs with, and never at, his audience.
