I never lived in a house trailer or dated my cousin, but I am a redneck and proud of it. I believe in many of the fundamental redneck values. I believe in God, honesty, self-reliance and a simple way of life.
But I also like computer's, high end stereo equipment, electronic fuel injection and other non redneck values. I am ... a complex redneck.
I have enjoyed redneck jokes for years, and after Jeff Foxworthy and the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, it became cool to be a redneck. If I were face to face with a group of terrorist's, I'd want six or seven rednecks with a pickup, keg o' beer, shotguns and tire irons at my side. We might go down, but we'll take 'em with us!! Just boils down to good redneck work ethic, clean up what you started.
I love a good redneck joke and one of my favorites is :
A teacher is giving a lecture around Halloween.
"Okay, how many of you have seen a ghost?" A few of the students raise their hand.
"Okay, how many of you have actually touched a ghost?" Two or three raise their hand this time
"Okay, how many of you have had sex with a ghost?" Silence, until a redneck boy in the back row puts up his hand.
"You've actually had sex with a ghost?"
"Ghost? Oh. I thought you said goat!"
Just for the record, I've never done my cousin, ... or a goat.
