Well, having lived in the South for 12 of my 21 years, I can come up with these TRUTHFUL ones:

12.) It's just one bumper sticker too many!
11.) I think the whip antennas on my pickup are longer than they need to be.
10.) Wo cares about the local 3rd grade football standings?
9.) I think I'll take a shower before I go to Lowe's.
8.) I'm tired of eating B's Barbeque everyday for lunch.
7.) I don't think it's safe for Dawg to be in the pickup bed. He might get hurt.
6.) I'm gonna go buy a leash for the dog.
5.) I think I'll stay home and paint the house instead of going to the Mud Bog race today.
4.) Sure I take a break from the NASCAR on TV and go get some milk. It doesn't matter if I miss a couple laps.
3.) We can't have a yardsale here, honey! It's private property!
2.) I'm going to go get a haircut.
1.) I'm gonna have to miss the ECU Pirates game today.

You Know You Are Trailer Park Trash When...

1. The Halloween pumpkin on your porch has more teeth than your spouse.

2. You let your twelve-year-old daughter smoke at the dinner table in front of her kids.

3. You've been married three times and still have the same in-laws.

4. You think a woman who is "out of your league" bowls on a different night.

5. Jack Daniel's makes your list of "most admired people."

6. You wonder how service stations keep their restrooms so clean.

7. Anyone in your family ever died right after saying, "Hey, watch this."

8. You think Dom Perignon is a Mafia leader.

9. Your wife's hairdo was once ruined by a ceiling fan.

10. Your junior prom had a daycare.

11. You think the last words of the Star Spangled Banner are, "Gentlemen, start your engines."

12. You lit a match in the bathroom and your house exploded right off its wheels.

13. The bluebook value of your truck goes up and down, depending on how much gas is in it.

14. You have to go outside to get something from the fridge.

15. One of your kids was born on a pool table.

16. You need one more hole punched in your card to get a freebie at the House of Tattoos.

17. You can't get married to your sweetheart because there's a law against it.

18. You think loading a dishwasher means getting your wife drunk.

19. Your toilet paper has page numbers on it.

20. Your front porch collapses and kills more than five dogs.

More things southern boys "don't never" say:

Well, I've had enough...(beer, steak, fries, whatever)

Anybody got a napkin?

Geez, honey, you oughta wear a bra with that top!

I think wet T-shirt contests are tasteless and offensive.

Moderation in all things, that's my credo.

We should apologize to the "Veet-namese" fer what we done there.

I don't approve of mindless violence!

We gotta clean up the violence in hockey right now!

Where's Canada?

Canada? What's Canada? Is it a new brand of beer?

Too much beer ain't good fer yer health.

* * * * and...

You Know You Are Trailer Park Trash When...

One of your kids was conceived on a pool table. You held your marriage ceremony on the back of a flatbed trailer. You had your honeymoon in Tumbleton, Alabama. And your wife bears an uncanny resemblance to your kid sister.

First I want to say that I hope this doesn't offend anyone.

Dearest Redneck Son,

I'm writing this slow because I know you can't read fast. We don't live where we did when you left home. Your Dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20 miles of your home, so we moved. I won't be able to send you the address because the last Arkansas family that lived here took the house numbers when they moved so they wouldn't have to change their address.
This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine. I'm not sure it works so well, though. Last week I put a load of clothes in and pulled the chain. We haven't seen them since. The weather isn't bad here. It only rained twice last week; the first time for three days and the second time for four days.

About that coat you wanted me to send; your Uncle Billy Bob said it would be too

heavy to send in the mail with the buttons on, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets.
Bubo locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were really worried because

it took him two hours to get me and your father out. Your sister had a baby this morning, but I haven't found out what it is yet so I don't know if you> are an aunt or uncle. The baby looks just like your brother.
Uncle Bobby Ray fell into whiskey vat last week. Some men tried

to pull him out but he fought them off and drowned. We had him cremated, he burned

for three days.
Three of your friends went off a bridge in a pickup truck. Butch was driving. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. Your other two friends were in the back. They drowned because they couldn't get the tailgate down.

There isn't much more news at this time. Nothing much out of the normal

has happened.

Your Favorite Aunt,
Mom

Where's Canada?

Canada? What's Canada? Is it a new brand of beer?

And then there's...

What're them Canadians doing playing our hockey game? Whaddya mean the Canadiens/Expos/etc. won the championship? They ain't even Americans! What the hell is going on around here?!!??

No, you're wrong on that one, LH. Southerners have little or no care about hockey. In our local papers, elementary school & highschool football get HUGE (and I mean HUGE) headlines, while hockey is stuck waaaaay in the back, with just a teeny tiny article. About hockey, they'd say "That's that really cold game that those city boys up in Raleigh play."

Hockey? Yeah right. Columbus, either the worlds biggest college town (Ohio State) or Cow-Town Extraordinaire, has never had a major league sports franchise unlike Cleveland or Cincy. So after great effort and mucho bucks we now have an NHL hockey team, the Blue Jackets. All of the upstanding yuppies are buying season tickets and the news is constsntly playing up the team and the new arena. The rest of us shitkickers are still wondering if we will ever get a major league team, like one in a real sport.

I do find it interesting that there's not a long list of "wherever" men and that southern men are usually the target.

You forgot to mention that a true southern gentleman can charm the knickers off any, and I mean any woman. That a true southern gentleman will say "thank you" when you're "done." That a true southern gentleman would never display humour at disgusting bodily emanations.

That being said ....

"If they put a few sharks into the pool, then synchronized swimming would be a sport."

"While we are pretty good hockey players, I think the Russians have over time shown that they really understand the game"

"I do remember Mr. Tim Horton, but what connection is there between him and doughnuts?"

"One nice thing -- among many -- about Toronto is the way in which gay couples can walk hand in hand without anyone making much of a fuss."

Here's some ways to tell if you are a southern boy:
The rear window of yer car is a plastic trash bag
You know exactly how many bales of hay will fit in that car (cause the pickup's up on blocks on the front lawn)
Your family tree is a straight line
YOu go to family reunions to meet wimmen
Your front porch collapses and kills at least 6 dogs
You've ever used a weed-eater indoors
You see a bumper sticker that says "Say No to Crack" and it reminds you to pull up your pants
You think beer and moonpies are the two major food groups

If you think when you get to the Pearly Gates, St.Peter says "Y'all hop in the pickup, we're goin' up to the big house!" you might be a redneck.

Others:
If you've had to climb up on the town watertower with a can of spraypaint to defend your sister's honor, you might be a redneck.

If your grandma says "Hey everybody, come look at something weird" before she flushes the toilet, you might be a redneck.

There are also the redneck work "ah-ite", "yuntoo?" and "jeet?" BTW "jeet?" is also part of me and my family's Philadelphia accent, along with "Yeeuh".

Being a native Texan (like my bud Willie, Buddy Holly, Bob Wills, Ernest Tubb, George Jones and so many other greats) I am sometimes appalled at how true a lot of these remarks are... many of my Southern brethren are rather... uncouth. I have family in Louisiana, Texas and Florida... ALL of the men are gentlemen and truly genteel individuals. The Southern Ladies in my family are mild-mannered, polite, hospitable and refined. Yes, we like things that are down-to-earth and sometimes a bit "goofy" or "trashy" to the Yankee, but it is because our great Southern Heritage has always been one where your enjoyment and sport developed out of a necessary function (hunting, using a tractor to pull a heavy load) and we were somtimes at a financial disadvantage compared to the "automated, mechanized" Yankee. I laugh at a good redneck joke like anyone; a clean one, of course. But I am saddened by the fact that there are not more genteel Southern men wanting to step up and be the charming, respectable, admirable men that our forefathers were... I grew up in NJ for a number of years and now live in PA... I traveled to New Orleans (the most romantic city on Earth) to ask my sweetheart to be my wife. I would not have done it any other way. There are many things, including saved and bound for Heaven one day, that I am "by the grace of God." but personal salvation notwithstanding, I am truly blessed in THIS life to be Southern.

There is a monument dedicated to the Southern men who lost their lives in the War Between The States... Robert E. Lee is standing at the top, facing north. There is a YMCA building directly in the statue's line of sight. A friend once said, "Mr. Lee thinks YMCA stands for "YANKEES MIGHT COME AGAIN"... He is facing due north because he learned NEVER to turn your back on a Yankee.

"Oh, I wish I was in the land of cotton, Old times there are not forgotten; Look away; Look away. Look away, Dixieland. I wish I was in Dixie, hooray! hooray! In Dixieland I'll take my stand! To live and die in Dixie! Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!"

Hey, GospelPicker, if I am ever down that way I will put some flowers by Robert E. Lee's monument (seriously). He was a great man. His Army of Northern Virginia was an outfit without peer in that war. Only at Gettysburg did he miscalculate (by launching Pickett's charge). Where exactly is his monument located?

Further to that, I can understand your patriotism and loyalty to the South (like mine to Canada), but I will add one additional comment of my own...we are all truly blessed in EVERY LIFE to be human.

Little Hawk My SO showed me an article in the Canada Post September 2000 that says that more than 50,000 Canadians served in the American Civil War it says "Following the war the figure of 40,000 was popularised by Mc Donald the ist Canadian Prime Minster later "Sir Joseph Howe..... upped this to 50,000" and also "Nor was Canadian participation restricted to the North,There were Canadians serving with every Confederate regiment throughout the war"

Hey, Micca...that's quite interesting to know. Thanks for the info. The American Civil War was a fascinating and very tragic conflict, and it must have aroused strong feelings among many in Canada and elsewhere. I appreciate the concerns of both sides in that war...Lincoln's desire to preserve the Union, the abolitionist's to free the slaves, and the Confederates to defend their sovereignty and their State's rights. I must say, though, that the South had a certain style and elan which I find pretty irresistible, and they had generals like Lee and Jackson who were the best of their day.

Plus...they were badly outnumbered. They had almost no chance of survival in the long run, let alone victory, and that has an appeal all its own...the appeal of the underdog. It's a great challenge for wargamers, who usually prefer to command the Southern forces, just to see if they can pull off a miracle and actually win against all odds.

We've done music at a number of Civil War reenactments. I'm not sure if it's my imagination or not, but the rebels always seem to be having more fun.

I'm sure they drink more, on the average...or maybe I'm not supposed to notice that...

Confederate is a lot more popular. I don't know what part of the continent you're on, but if you've ever been to reenactments in the South, the Union is always so badly outnumbered it's ridiculous. My brother's been in situations where the Union is, historically, supposed to win, but is fighting with 15 guys against 90 Confederates (not exaggerating).

Unfortunately, there are also a lot of "biker brigades", where guys want to be Confederate expressly for the ambience and don't care so much about the history. You can usually spot them by their suede kepis and motorcycle boots. I don't care if they want to do that kind of thing, but it hurts when you're trying to create as convincing an atmosphere as possible.

On a lighter note . . .

"That smells nice--is it a new kind of incense?"

Mbo - We Canadians are gonna have to change your official moniker to "Dumbo" for that last remark! Oooo...we're ticked off now! Are you aware that in the War of 1812, the American forces were repulsed on numerous occasions when they tried to invade Canada? We "kicked their butts" (to quote a Yankee phrase) every single time. Furthermore, our redcoats sailed up the Potomac and burned Washington to the ground ("And the White House burned, burned, burned, and we're the ones that did it...in the War of 1812" * contemporary Canadian folksong). "We fired our guns and the Yankees kept a-comin', there wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago, we fired once more and then they get to runnin', across the wide Niagara, boys, and back to Buffalo..."

Add to that the fact that the British Navy swept the sea pretty much clean of American shipping during 1812-1814.

In isolated incidents the American frigate Constitution did very well on its cruises defeating the British frigates Guerriere (formerly French) and Java, but the British Shannon defeated the American Chesapeake, and the British in general ruled the roost at sea.

The Battle of New Orleans is so well remembered in the USA mainly because it's the only really significant land engagement that the Americans won in that war...and it occured 2 or 3 weeks after the war was officially over.

I guess maybe the Canadians who joined the Confederacy were doing their bit to get back at the Yankees who had tried to invade Canada only 50 years earlier...or maybe they figured it would be advantageous to British North America to break up the USA.

Now don't worry, Matt, I'm not actually angry...I just had to retaliate in kind for the sheer fun of it, and I love history. :-)

I'm wondering...was J.Richards killed at Gettysburg?

LH, you mustn't be THAT good at history! Gettysburg was July 1-3 1863. This seems to be more of a minor skirmish. There were a lot of reports of small foraging parties being attacked on this day. BTW he's buried at Arlington.

Little Hawk, a couple of points, well, alongside Lee and Jackson, who have the Yankees gotas colourful, Burnside??? and on the War of 1812, the burnt "white house" is so called because the couldn't remove the scorch marks and had to whitwash over them hence the White House. Yeah for Upper Canada...( esp. the micro brewery of the same name and the beer called Rebellion)

LittleHawk, give Mbo a break. You have to understand that the War of 1812 is skipped over very cautiously in history courses in U. S. public schools; and what is taught stresses the Battle of New Orleans because we did win that. Most U. S. school kids grow up thinking that we never lost a war except Vietnam, and they're probably fudging on that by now.

A few years ago I would have called you a liar. But when I first heard Stan's "McDonnell on the Heights," I was so turned on by it that I started reading about that war, and was very surprised.

Peter.

The reason we won the Battle of New Orleans is that Jackson had so many Louisiana French on his side. They had a score to settle.
