    I think it is not so much a book, but an attempt to break the world record for the usage of the words "wuz" and "coz"

    Jethro an’ ah just kept on sweatin’ like pigs, which wuz’nt so bad coz we’d been laughin’ so
    much at the way the Thai waiters kept prayin’ at us that ah’d actually wet myself. They kept on
    bringin’ their palms together like a little church steeple and right up to their nose whenever show-off
    Jethro gave them a 10 baht tip, an’ we wuz playin’ it for all it wuz worth. An’ the girls were even
    funnier; they’d do this little curtsy bob-down thingy as they did the prayin’ part. Barry said it was
    called a Wai. Real cute it wuz an’ Jethro couldn’t help makin’ fun of them. But we wuz from out of
    town, so to speak, an’ kinda knew we’d get away with some attitude.
    etc.....

    ^ Yup, it tends to drag on a bit. Not a bad idea but sadly lacking in subtlety.
