GUEST,daylia Redneck is an insulting word (140* d) RE: Redneck is an insulting word 09 Dec 02

Last year I spent a few months on beautiful Vancouver Island in a little fishing village. I'm from Ontario, so I was aware that plenty of people on the west coast don't care much for Easterners. I was ready to take it in stride ...

The first day I was walking on the beach, I happened by an elderly couple gathering seaweed for their garden. We chatted a little, and when I answered their question "Where are you from?", the old man looked at me and grumbled "Ahhhh ... everyone from Ontario is a REDNECK!"

Now I could have been insulted, but as he said it I couldn't take my eyes off HIS neck. It was wrinkled and flabby and so red - purple really - he looked like a rooster! This really tickled my funny-bone, and I walked away laughing, pleasantly wishing them a good day.

Guess it takes one to know one, eh?
