Kinky iTunes: Hear the Kinky Friedman Songs that got 60 Minutes in a Twist

Did you catch Kinky Friedman's appearance on 60 Minutes last night?  Our favorite candidate did alright even while Morley Safer tried to find controversy in thirty year-old Kinkster tunes.  "Does he worry that religious voters in the very religious state of Texas might be offended?" asked Safer.  He also asked Kinky's campaign manager if he was "concerned that some of Friedman's songs, such as "They Ain’t Makin’ Jews Like Jesus Anymore," might offend religious Christian voters."

Kinkybw_ex_4 Before he was Texas' Governor in Waiting, before he wrote the 23 mystery novels, Kinky was a song writer and they definitely don't make song writers like him anymore. Sadly, when you speak with a twang, folks often fail to hear that you have your tongue planted squarely in your cheek.

If you'd like to hear some of Kinky's most notorious songs, check out The Armadillo Podcast's Kinky Friedman iMix on iTunes.  For your downloading pleasure, we've put together a mix of five of Kinky's most well-known songs including "Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed" and "They Don't Make Jew Like Jesus Anymore."  This song, according to 60 Minutes, "led to threats by both Jewish groups and anti-Semites, though they all failed to see he was trying to point out the ignorance of bigotry."

Warning: These songs are not safe for work (NSFW), for school, your parents, children, those folks easily offended, lacking a sense of humor or the politically correct.
