With Farmer Tice Book #2 comes even more irreverent humor than before. If you thought the first book was a riot, wait ’til you read I Didn’t Mean To Do It. Those who enjoy Mad Magazine and The Simpsons will love Farmer Tice.
Farmer Tice lives with his wife, Agnes (also known as Honeybunch), on a rickety old farm in a town called Hokum. If all farmers were like Farmer Tice, everybody would starve. His wife isn’t any better. How the two of them ever got married is explained in one of the chapters in my first book, Farmer Tice. Hint: they both were looking for matrimony at the bottom of the barrel at the same time.
Farmer Tice’s nephew is named Wessell, but everybody calls him The Weasel. It’s the perfect name for a scheming, tricky teenager like him. Farmer Tune is a neighbor who is always taking advantage of Farmer Tice however he can. Bum Park is way out on the east side of Hokum and is one of Farmer Tice’s favorite hangouts. The park was actually named after one of Hokum’s most distinguished founders, Horatio Alger Bum II, but that was a long time ago. In recent years, it has become a sort of sanctuary not only for the homeless, but for lazy farmers seeking sanctuary from their daily chores. Farmer Tice is there so much, some people think Bum Park was named after a bum like him.
Who exactly is Farmer Tice? Well, that’s hard to say. Some say he’s a mixture of Snuffy Smity and W.C. Fields. Others think he’s more akin to Homer Simpson and Rodney Dangerfield. Personally speaking, I don’t think Farmer Tice is like anyone you’re likely to find in any comic strip. He’s a mold-breaking entity of his own.
So, enjoy these stories, and remember the whole point is to make you laugh. The stories are short and sweet and bring us into a world of hillbilly locals and yokels unlike anybody you’ll ever meet.
