Who's a Redneck?

Okay, let's admit it. There are all kinds of stereotypes out there about rednecks and rural folks and farmers and bumpkins etc. etc. etc.

All stereotypes have a basis in fact, but it's often difficult to ferret out just where they come from.

Some are blatantly obvious.

Some aren't.

Last night here in our little western Kentucky town the activity d'jour was "Ladies Night at the Hardware Store."

Katie had a great time.

Go figure!

Im really not a redneck but I do redneck stuff.Last winter in Texas I drove by a fox that had been hit by a car I stopped and picked it up it had no damage so it got frozen hauled back to New Mexico where HB thawed it skinned it and now it will get tanned.A really beautiful fur ,I dont hunt but HB was proud I brought home my first road kill he even wouldn't do that.I only did it as it was a beautiful thing and hated to see it go to waste and it was still really fresh.I could never kill an animal on purpose.HB is a guide and a major hunter and people are really surprised we are together since I love animals so much.But I eat meat and yet I would not want to hunt it and I definately do not want to know the details of a hunt.
And actually I also enjoy going to the hardware store.

Last time Halley's Comet passed, my family was in the back yard looking up at it. None of us could see it well, and someone mentioned that a pair of binoculars would be nice. My father got this "Hey! I've got an idea!" look on his face, disappeared into the house and reappeared with his hunting rifle. We took turns looking at the comet through the rifle's scope. After standing back and watching this for a bit, I couldn't help but comment, in true Foxworthy fashion, "If you're standing in your back yard looking at a comet through the scope of a hunting rifle... You might be a redneck!"

For some reason, dad didn't laugh... but everyone else did!

Too good. I'm laughing out loud. Isn't it great that the "real" things are the funniest?

You might be a redneck if you think the Jeff Foxworthy TV Show was based on a true life experience.

You might be a redneck if you think your flannel shirt is reversible.

You might be a redneck if you think the first day of the week is Payday.
