Comedian Jeff Foxworthy has been making people laugh since the mid-1990s. Best known for his “you might be a redneck if” jokes, he also appeared on “Blue Collar TV” and currently hosts the popular game show “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?”
Now he turns his hand to children’s literature with Hide!!!, and in a Q&A he tells BookPage why it’s important for children to get off the couch:
“I recently read an article that said that children that play outside develop better problem solving skills and have a stronger ability to work within a group. But my generation, as parents, has been so overprotective that we have taken away many of those opportunities. I’m not sure how you fix it.”
But it’s not all serious: Foxworthy’s choice of authors to have dinner with will have you laughing out loud. Read the full Foxworthy Q&A.
