Book Description

April 24 2007
Cabich, bird fude, nodiles, buttmilk, dog yogurt, bannes, hare sope, cream of salary soup.

What do these things have in common? They're all items from real grocery lists. Whose lists? Who knows. The lists were found discarded in shopping carts, dropped on supermarket floors and parking lots, even tucked in returned library books. But the fact that they were discarded is not what's interesting about them. It's that they were found - found and/or collected by Bill Keaggy, proprietor of Grocerylists.org and the author of the world's first compilation of lost grocery lists. This book.

If we are what we eat, then this book reveals deep and strange truths about the average food shopper (not to mention more mundane facts like a lot of people love vodka, banana is actually very difficult to spell and that butter used to be dyed yellow using marigolds).

Separated into chapters - funny lists, sad lists, unhealthy lists, organized lists - the book also includes humorous commentary by the author and some delicious recipes created from found grocery lists. Quirky sidebars and odd food facts round out the menu.

*Translation: Cabbage, bird food, noodles, buttermilk, dog yogurt (duh), bananas, shampoo, cream of celery soup.

4.0 out of 5 stars You will find one of your OWN shopping lists in this collection! May 23 2007
By R S Cobblestone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
How often do you drop your used shopping lists into the shredder? I would expect you would reply, "Never". And because of this, Milk Eggs Vodka: Grocery Lists Lost and Found, by Bill Keaggy, was born.

I was just walking by a bookshelf when my eyes lingered for an extra second on this book. I think my first impression was that it was a cookbook by some over-the-hill rock stars... I mean, milk, eggs, and vodka? But where was the subtitle, "Meatloaf's/Pink Floyd's/Grand Funk's roadie cookbook."

Then I caught the real subtitle: "Grocery Lists Lost and Found."

It was intriguing enough that I picked it up off the shelf.

This was a really entertaining collection of real shopping lists, with the wrinkles and creases, the torn edges, the use of scrap paper, the misspellings, and America's diet (there is a reason obesity rates are on the rise) all laid out in their glory.

There is enough of a collection that at least one of these discarded lists will look familiar.

Is it yours?

Fine literature these lists, and this book, are not. However, the collection was interesting to peruse, and I'll bet this would be a great icebreaker at a party (take turns trying to read the lists on each page... "hookers and blow"?). This book would also be a great present for that friend or family member with that good sense of humor.

Now that I've read Milk Eggs Vodka, I suspect I will pay a bit closer attention to what I write down on that scrap of newspaper. After all, Bill Keaggy may be the next person to use my grocery cart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny Nov. 1 2007
By Jennifer A. Wickes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Bill Keagy shares his love of the unusual, your discard shopping list. At his website and his book, Milk Eggs Vodka, we get to see what some people are shopping for, as well as Keagy's humorous commentary. It is completely amazing to see the misspellings and how our own shopping list can be seen as a source of amusement for others. This book is funny and irreverent and worth taking a peek.

4.0 out of 5 stars good buy. Sept. 29 2008
By C. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
If you're into quirky, voyeuristic looks into other peoples lives, you'll love this. Some of the commentary on the lists is a little pointless, but the lists provide more than enough humor. On the other hand, if you looked at this page wondering why anyone would want a book of other people's grocery lists, stay far away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spy on America Nov. 12 2007
By K. Meier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Gave this gift to an English Professor and then bought one for myself. It is unique enough for the coffee table and fun to read aloud with the family. Seeing photos of the grocery lists makes you feel like a spy into our commercial culture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Book Oct. 21 2007
By Eric Schultz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a very clever book. I like how it is in full color and is organized very creatively. My reccommendation is that you read the lists FIRST, then read what Bill Keaggy has to say. Sometimes it's not funny if you read his snipit first. I also love how he created some recipes based on the lists he's found. I can't wait to try some out. Very good book to add to your collection.
