Default This is how important air conditioning is in the South...

It's so important that this redneck had to outfit this POS Lincoln with a household window unit and a generator....



The trailer taillights screwed onto the back of the trunk are a nice touch.

Unfortunately, they are everywhere. They are in Belgium, too, you just know them by another name.

(And, for the record, this was NOT taken in Tennessee. I'm not exactly sure where it is -- a friend in Atlanta sent this to me -- but since the land is so flat, I'm guessing Florida or Louisiana.)

LOL! Primer on the truck cab, smoking cigarettes over a plastic sheet (which will catch fire or melt)! Nice!

I don't think I'm a redneck. But I've sat in a pickup truck/tarp pool. More than once!

This one's always a classic...



I've learned that this picture was staged -- the toilet isn't operable -- but take a look at the trailer and deck! Still a redneck if I ever saw one!

Are you gonna make me quote Jeff Foxworthy? "If you've ever gone swimming in the bed of a pickup truck, you might be a redneck!"

That pic isn't true redneck, the truck is a Toyota!

Hey, but is your state home to the American Mud Racing Association?


I rest my case.

BKrell:

As a native Tennessean (30+ years) with over three years of living in Alabama and a year in West Texas and 900,000 miles on Delta Airlines criss-crossing the Southeast, I can honestly say that I know a redneck when I see one.

Louisiana unquestionably has the highest redneck concentration of any place in the Southeastern US. Maybe the whole country.

The only hesitation that I have is that my rare visits to Maine and the Dakotas indicate that either of these places could prove to be higher in redneck concentration if a full audit was done.
If it weren't for Morgantown and Huntington, West Virginia would get the nod. Ditto for Kentucky -- if it weren't for Louisville and the Cincinnati suburbs, Kentucky would be the redneck king.

And here's a surprise: Mississippi isn't even in the running, probably not in the top five. Why? Because there aren't many people there to begin with, and those that are there are pretty much normal people from my experience.

and people wonder what the big deal about Nascar is! I'm not sure about redneck on the Lincoln with the AC unit - screams a little ghetto to me - but the others - no doubt

You know, I thought the same about the Lincoln until I realized two things:

1. The ghetto element generally doesn't have a generator lying around. Rednecks have 'em all the time for their hunting camps and such.

2. Most of the ghetto element around me drive around with the windows down even in new cars in 90 degree heat.

I believe that it's a redneck.

Generators have become quite popular down here recently after those two little storms we had last year.

Yes, yes, I'll bet they have! I hadn't considered that. Scratch number 1, and number 2 is a personal choice, so we're back on the debate: ghetto vs. redneck. Either way, it's still funny!

Oh that's genuine redneck. In Louisiana, we have another element that complicates things-the Cajun. Think rednecks yet harder to understand.

SO TRUE! And then there's the different cajun accents! So confusing!

What kills me about Cajuns is that they are proud to be rednecks!!

There are other versions of the redneck that have similar pride, but with the Cajun, maintaining the redneck cred is very important!
