Hold my calls and cancel my appointments. I'm heading to Kentucky in search of a better way of life at the Big Fib Trailer Park Cul-de-sac. And it's a good thing there's room in the back, because after you meet Paul Strickland's cast of familial characters and their cohorts, you're going to want to join me.
How can you argue with a woman who puts Band-Aids on the cracks in her crockery, a man who's known to be the world's first ambidextrous pea puncher and Siamese twins who were born in different years but have now fused together to form a human Venn diagram? And really, why would you want to?
These people live life writ large and through Strickland's pitch perfect storytelling and verbal acrobatics (oh boy, can this man spin a yarn), we're transported to a magical place where common sense may be in short supply, but wisdom abounds.
