    You might be a redneck if....


    Your working tv is on top of your non working tv.

    you mow your yard and find a car in it.

    Your house still has the wide load sign on it.

    You think possum is the other white meat.

    The centerpiece on your dining room table
    is an original signed work by a famous taxidermist.


    You think a quarter horse is
    a ride out in front of the Wal-Mart.

    Your huntin dawg had a litter of puppies in the living room and nobody noticed.

    Taking your wife on a cruise
    means circling the Dairy Queen

    You believe dual air bags refer
    to your wife and mother-in-law

    You've got more than
    one brother named 'Darryl'.

    You have a rag for a gas cap.

    Fifth grade was the best six years of your life

    You have flowers planted in a
    bathroom fixture in your front yard

    You've been on TV more than 5 times
    describing the sound of a tornado.

    You know yer a redneck when you take a load to the dump and bring back more than you took .

    Main Entry: red┬Ěneck
    Pronunciation: 'red-"nek
    Function: noun
    Date: 1830

    1 sometimes disparaging : a white member of the Southern rural laboring class

    2 often disparaging : a person whose behavior and opinions are similar to those attributed to rednecks
    http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary


    The term came about from the 'laboring class', most often in the south being farmrs. Who naturally had a red back of the neck, from constant sun exposure.
    So no I guess I would qualify for being a redneck, but my husband would.

    Or for number 2, maybe sometimes I could be.

    I once had the working tv on top of the non working tv.

    Yes, I am red-necked. I went to the Texas v. Baylor football game on Nov. 3 in Waco, and it was a bright sun and about 85 degrees. My neck is still red.

    If you choose to walk the extra length off your pants rather than hem them....You might be a red neck. LoL I laughed so hard when I heard that I almost passed out.

    When going on vacation, your biggest decision is "paper or plastic"?

    Your school colors are flannel?

    You say "y'all" because it refers to everyone, no matter how many people you're talking to?

    Y'all lay off the redneck jokes, ya hear? Some of 'em are just WAY too close to home!.... [​IMG]

    Are all the posts on this thread saying they are rednecks? I'm assuming yes.
    I don't believe I'm a redneck.
    I think I'm just countrified.

    Ok-What's with the south bashin'? ;) If you can't stand the heat down here (actually, today has been cold - 67 degrees) well, go inside. :D Y'all know I'm laughing. Actually, at my house, we don't have any "Stuffed" animals-but we will if my brother ever gets his 8 point buck's head back. I guess, you could say we are red-necked. We eat deer meat at least once a week (never have, never will eat 'possum. Them thangs looks too much like a dirty ol' cat for me) ;)

    Grace, I'm in the south to. We hardly ever see possum, unless it's roadkill.
    We grew up on deer, rabbit, squirl, frog legs, and turtle. My dad liked to hunt. Haven't eaten game in years. Can't stand it now. Hate the game flavor.

    Gina,
    Once the knob fell off the tv(in the 1980's, tv was 1970's model), and one of the kids lost it, we used pliars. Then there was the time lightening ran in the antenna wire, tv still worked, but it came on in the middle of the night. From then on we had to plug it in to turn it on. Got our first color tv in 1991, boy did we feel rich.

    When they do, gonna have to git me one of those.

    Just don't like the idea of game meat.Maybe it's a phobis or something. I can go to the store and buy meat and love it, but I can't stand to put game in my mouth.
    LAst year we had chili at church, a bunch of us brought our own big pot of chili, then we all shared and we everyone elses chili. I ate some that was good, and then found out it was deer chili, almost got sick. Then before I could claim my pot they had pour a bunch of chili in it, layers of different chilis. So I took my pot home, and we had a bowl, got nauseaus just thinking there was deer in it. I don't know what it is I just can't eat it. My mom says I used to love it. But then again I used to love frog legs to, would even think of putting one in my mouth now.

    Katie, I have this horrid feeling ya just wouldn't make it in some of the places I've been, rofl! Sometimes I've just had stuff handed to me and seen eyes or tentacles or other creepy things....you just learn to say "don't tell me exactly what is is, just tell me if it flies, swims, crawls, or walks" and then ya cook it by the color, lol. Yow! Remind me tell you about the first time I was asked to cook some innocent looking eggs for a chinese restaurant once.... ;)(the workers, not the customers...)
