In Inept: Impaired: Overwhelmed, West Virginia tall tale-teller Bil Lepp keeps a smile on your face as he regales you with stories about catfish-grabblin , summer camp, moose-trappin , and a mishap with the FBI. Being a five-time winner of the West Virginia Liars Contest makes Lepp a natural for his two jobs: a state employee and a Methodist minister. From childhood to adulthood, Bil s wacky adventures often include his best friend, Skeeter Barth. Whether you find that Bil and Skeeter are trouble-makers or that trouble just follows them around, you ll be laughing as they test smelly catfish-bait; get stopped by the sheriff; struggle with rock climbing; and get attacked by woodpeckers, catfish, and moose. Bil is often accompanied by his super-dog Buck, whose mother was a German shepherd and whose father was a prolific and extremely determined basset hound. With Buck s help, Bil tries kayak dogsledding on the New River; stops up the Bluestone Dam; and takes the Monster Stick out for one last wild ride.
