Author Biography

Who are Butch and Louie?

Societally unacceptable—with no plans to change!
Is that it?

We write vignettes about people, places and life events as seen through our bad boy eyes. Here are a few things other people have said about us. Maybe that will provide you a window into our non-redemptive asses.

Sargent Bernard Walsh, “Butch and Louie are two witty guys. They make me laugh every time I have to talk to them.”

Detective Mannie Lopez, “These guys are fun to be with. I never leave the room without a smile.”

Bail Bondsman Martie McGee, “Butch and Louie always have a funny story to tell. I love it when they come in.”

Pastor Michael Washington, “These guys are two dirty a’holes, but I love being around them.”

Did you guys really write this book and why?

Or you asking if we can right? (Mrs. Blanchard, our 10th grade English teacher, used to ask the same question. She was key to our early graduation.)

Of course, we wrote it. Sometimes, when we’re having a bad day, like right after an interrogation, we need a few good laughs to make the day go better. We thought you could use some too.

Do you guys really ride Harleys?

Panhead humorists don’t ride bicycles!

Reviewed by Grant Leishman for Readers' Favorite

The Harley Rider’s Book of Bad Boy Humor (For Adults Only) by Butch and Louie is an irreverent, farcical and at times downright hilarious collection of impressions, thoughts, and life stories that highlight, ridicule, and question some of society’s most sacred cows, especially as they might apply in America. The two authors are proud Harley-riding, one assumes slightly right-wing but not offensively so, politically incorrect individuals, who seek to shine a light on such topics as cancel culture, cosmetic surgery, exercise, the Green New Deal, differing social mores in the different U.S. States, social media, and being totally up-to-date and relevant. There are many vignettes in this collection that cover Covid-19, its handling, its effect on society across the US and, of course, its potential solution – vaccination. Interspersed with the social commentary on people’s gullibility, stupidity, or downright ignorance is a thread of life tales that either piqued the authors’ interests, or provide an insight into the idea that people are people wherever they come from and crassness, weirdness, and downright oddness is not something Americans alone can be pointed at for.

The Harley Rider’s Book of Bad Boy Humor (For Adults Only) is exactly what its title says. It is a road trip for the mind, the imagination, and the “funny bone”. Good comedy is extremely hard to write and whether you agree or not with Butch and Louie’s darkly funny insights into life, you will have to agree they are genuinely funny and for that the authors have achieved their goal, to make you laugh, and kudos to them for that. As with any collection, there are some slices of life that struck me as pure genius and one in particular that elicited a deep belly laugh. A Better World Through Plastics genuinely had me leaning forward and clutching my stomach in hilarity. I thought Chew Toys and a couple of other stories were fantastically cutting in their analysis of what motivates consumer spending in certain areas and who really benefits from stuff like cosmetic surgery or life-prolonging surgery for terminally ill pets. There are just so many stories in this collection (around 45) that I can only scratch the surface here. If you want something to lift you out of your quarantine funk and put a grin on your face, I can highly recommend this read.
