Humor Articles - What Me A Redneck?
The sad truth is that I received another in a long, long, list of redneck jokes the other day and couldn't help but note how many of them applied to me. For example: You can entertain yourself for more than 15 minutes with a fly swatter. Boy that one sure hit home with me. I once spray painted the logo of my alma mater on fly swatters, then wrote a story about how the fly swatter was invented by an undergraduate of that university while he was milking a cow. The story was reproduced in pamphlet form and attached to the fly swatters which I handed out.
You have a complete set of salad bowls and they all say 'Cool Whip' on the side. Here's the truth about that one. This is not a Southern thing as much as it is a man thing. Most men care a lot more about what they eat than what they eat it on. If I wasn't married Cool Whip salad bowls would be the standard on my table.
Your working TV sits on top of your non-working TV. Back in the day I've had as many as three TVs sitting on top of or next to each other. Each one resting on the scrap board and concrete block entertainment center that I was darn proud of having. In those days it was possible to have a TV fixed and it was barely possible that I would someday have the money to have one of those sets put in working order. Not likely mind you, but possible.
You know how many bales of hay your car will hold. Well in the first place most Southerners own or at least have an uncle or cousin or neighbor who owns a pickup truck. But in all honesty there have been times in my life when it was easier to throw a few bales of hay in the car. The answer is six.
Your boat has not left the driveway in 15 years. This is just wrong on so many levels. If the boat floats it would be in the pond so that it is actually possible to go fishing on your lunch break. If the boat doesn't float it would have been sold on e-bay or borrowed and never returned by a cousin with four kids, six dogs and no job. While there may indeed be a gravel road or at least a couple of worn ruts leading up to the house or mobile home, calling it a driveway is just way overstating the case.
You've used your ironing board as a buffet table. With an appropriate covering I see nothing wrong with actually using the ironing board for something since it surely never gets used for ironing. Unless it is outside for a back yard pig roast do not cover with a tarp or anything plastic and never use old clothes even if they are clean. Beach towels or an old bed spread will suffice assuming the dogs haven't slept on either one.
Can you imagine Larry The Cable Guy with a Boston accent? Me neither. Let's just laugh, enjoy life, and be glad we live in the South.
