Cledus T. Judd stakes his claim as Country Music's prime court jester with "Did I Shave My Back For This?," an album which mixes the Country parodies that made him famous with a few original tunes. Cledus's rollicking, self-deprecating humor is at its highest (or perhaps lowest) on the title track, which finds him enumerating the finer points of a beauty routine which is as funny as it is sickening. "Cledus Don't Stop Eatin' For Nothin'" details Mr. Judd's prodigious consumption to the tune of Brooks & Dunn's "Mama Don't Get Dressed Up For Nothin'."
Judd takes a swipe at Mindy McCready on "Wives Do It All The Time," but not to worry, Ol' Cledus pours out his heart to the songstress on "Mindy McReady," a hilarious reworking of Alan Jackson's smash hit "Little Bitty." Cledus also proves that he doesn't need someone else's tunes to make you laugh. Buck Owens lends his inimitable vocal style to "First Redneck On The Internet," in which Cledus joins the computer age to wreak havoc on the woman who did him wrong. "Psychic To The Stars" finds Cledus supplementing his income by making predictions for Country music's heavy hitters.
