    What I meant to say is, I've never had boudin or frogs' legs or crappie or catfish or dove. I didn't mean that I've never had the distinction of eating at Miss Kay's table.

    Another thing: I thought Martin and Godwin were first names, but according to Wikipedia, they're surnames?

    Oh, you just don't know what you are missing! Especially the crappie and the boudin. You didn't mention crawfish, but you are missing out on those too. When the crappie spawn in the spring, daddy used to go out and catch them by the loads. SERIOUSLY good fish! Light, mild and flaky. We mostly ate them fried, but they were good broiled as well.

    I haven't eaten dove since I was a kid, but daddy and mama both were dove (and quail) hunters back in the day. Frog legs are okay...they really do taste like chicken. ;)

    Dove is pigeon, your hunting grounds are legion.

    Um, no, Mayor "Mr. Nanny" Bloomberg of NYC frowns upon people shooting pigeons in his fair city. :D

    I've had all the above, except boudin, as I'm still not entirely sure what it is.
    It looks like sausage, but I'm guessing it's made from meat not normally found in sausage, so maybe I have had it just didn't know to call it boudin.
    ETA: according to the google, boudin is exactly that, sausage made from "exotic" meats, and sounds delicious.

    I've always though of frog legs as being on par with escargot, fancy rich people eat them, didn't think of it as a redneck dish, I tried both on cruises.

    In my youth I had an uncle that took me dove hunting, rabbit hunting, squirrel hunting and fishing for both crappie and catfish.
    We didn't think of ourselves as rednecks, just poor enough to eat what we shot or caught.

    I've never had squirrel, either, although I've had rabbit along with quail, partridge, grouse, venison, and elk at one very memorable dinner back in the 1980s.

    I've been enjoying it more than I'd like. I find Jace hysterical.

    I've known several people-quite a few actually, with Martin as the last name.

    Ack, once again I must clarify. What I meant to say is, why does the show refer (in the on-screen IDs) to Martin and Godwin by their last names? Everybody else is identified by their first name.

    Actually, boudin today is sausage-like, but I wouldn't consider it to be actual sausage- in the sausage family. Boudin stuffing is a rice dressing made with pork, typically. It is usually a bit spicy and often smoky in flavor. The casing is not typical sausage casing either. It is thicker and depending upon how the boudin is cooked, it can be rather chewy. My favorite way to prepare it is grilled. The casing crisps up nicely and you can eat it. Some people steam it, which results in a boudin that you eat basically by squeezing the stuffing out. The stuffing does not firm up like sausage, but remains soft, like rice dressing. Boudin is definitely a treat and one of the joys of living in Louisiana is discovering new sources. Lots of small local shops which sell their own homemade brand. I just recently discovered a new all-time favorite (at least until I try something better).

    I've never seen this show. The only reason I am aware of it was because of all the merchandise for sale at Walmart. Then I saw a chia pet commercial on tv with their faces on it. I got up this morning and they are on the local news. They are supporting someone for political office in LA.

    Have these people totally sold out? These guys have got to be billionaires.

    It's a scripted hunting show? Doesn't sound like anything I'd want to watch. But it seems to be popular here in the deep south.

    I wouldn't call it a "scripted hunting show"....yes, they're shown hunting sometimes, but that's just a small part of the show. It's very difficult to describe other than showing snippets of the family life which is unusual to say the least and funny oftentimes...

    I've never seen the show either but they are certainly cashing in on their "fame" (I would too). Tonight Phil, Kay and Uncle Si are appearing at a "book discussion and Q&A" (Korie was suppose to be there too but isn't due to "family obligations").

    They're doing 2 appearances at a 2,500 theater at $46.50 a pop and it appears as if both "shows" are just about sold out. Ka-ching. Good for them.

    It is not a scripted hunting show.

    just check out a couple minute clip on the website or youtube and you can find out for yourself.

    Someone bought my father a "Happy Happy Happy" baseball cap for his birthday.
    He'd never seen the show, had no idea what the phrase was from.

    I told him to try the show out, he should like it.
    He watched the episode with Phil and Kay renewing their wedding vows, and did not like it at all.
    I tried to convince him to watch from the beginning, but he was having no part of it.


    I enjoy it, but will admit it's getting a bit over scripted, and way, way, way over merchandised.

    Basically, it's a sitcom disguised as a reality show about a family that owns/operates a duck call business. And it's probably the best sitcom on TV.

    I am guessing that's what they go by. I know several people who prefer to be called by their last name.
