We'uns Is Gettin' Famous

I don't know how this came about. It's kinda like that salsa from New York city. But in Chicago, CHICAGO (!, ?)there's Leslies Omnibus and she's talkin' 'bout us rednecks. But since we're kinda starved for attention, we'll take anything we can get. So thanks Leslie. George Bush is workin' that angle pretty well.
And I don't understand what Leslie means "From the Rowdies in the Back of the Bus". We ain't rowdy, it's just Jim Bob and that mason jar.

Yeah, we know we're a redneck if:

1. You take your dog for a walk and you both use the same tree.

2. You can entertain yourself for more than 15 minutes with a fly swatter.

3. Your boat has not left the driveway in 15 years.

4. You burn your yard rather than mow it.

5. You think "The Nutcracker" is something you do off the high dive.

6. The Salvation Army declines your furniture.

7. You offer to give someone the shirt off your back and they don't want it.

8. You have the local taxidermist on speed dial.

9. You come back from the dump with more than you took.

10. You keep a can of Raid on the kitchen table.

11. Your wife can climb a tree faster than your cat.

12. Your grandmother has "ammo" on her Christmas list.

13. You keep flea and tick soap in the shower.

14. You've been involved in a custody fight over a hunting dog.

15. You go to the stock car races and don't need a program.

16. You know how many bales of hay your car will hold.

17. You have a rag for a gas cap.

18. Your house doesn't have curtains, but your truck does.

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

20. You can spit without opening your mouth.

21. You consider your license plate personalized because your father made it.

22. Your lifetime goal is to own a fireworks stand.

23. You have a complete set of salad bowls and they all say "Cool Whip" on the side.

24. The biggest city you've ever been to is Wal-Mart.

25. Your working TV sits on top of your non-working TV.

26. You've used your ironing board as a buffet table.

27. A tornado hits your neighborhood and does $100,000 worth of improvements.

28. You've used a toilet brush to scratch your back.

29. You missed your 5th grade graduation because you were on jury duty.

30. You think fast food is hitting a deer at 65.

I find I qualify for several of those, especially number 16...but then my kids brag about being rednecks, so if you get into the apple and gravity thing, I guess I must be one too.
Happened over here from Pure Florida and had a very enjoyable read. Mind if I give you a link in my blogroll?
