You know you're a redneck when you have a rare skin condition causing ruddy blemishes on or around your throat.

....get it?

I get it.

Really, the origins of the term involved a nutrient deficiency in isolated, backwoods communities which caused the necks to swell and turn red. It was a lack of blood, or oxygen flow to the brain - thereby causing the person with a red-neck to have a lower mentality and using very poor judgment.

This is a classy series of jokes and I'll email it to all my friends, and probably the others as well.

Jupiter's Girl: thanks for the information. I never knew that, and always thought the name came from the sunburnt necks country folks get from hoeing the fields all day long.

I feel a story coming on, somewhere down the line.

FE, love your stories; you are so clever. Can't wait to see what the rednecks inspired you to write.
