You Might Be a Redneck

By Ruth A. Ringelstetter

Sometimes, when Joann and I finally make it to our motel during our photography trips, we look for something relaxing to watch on TV while we make our dinner and unload the day’s photos. Sometimes we’re lucky and we stumble on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour shows with Jeff Foxworthy. His “You Might Be a Redneck” jokes always make us laugh. Sometimes we remember something from our past or maybe something a relative has done comes to mind. And often we’re reminded of scenes we’ve seen along the backroads.

Here are a few of our favorites:

You might be a redneck if grass is growing in the floor boards of your car.

You might be a redneck if Friday night is “sneak into the drive-in night.”

You might be a redneck if you finally mow your front lawn and you find the pickup truck that you thought was stolen.

You might be a redneck if your bathroom is 50 feet away from your house.

You might be a redneck if taking your wife on a cruise means circling the Dairy Queen.

We often see humorous things along the way as we travel the backroads, so we’ve made up a few redneck jokes ourselves. Here they are:

You might be a redneck if you have to be told not to park on the sidewalk.

You might be a redneck if you need help aiming when you relieve yourself by the side of the road.

You might be a redneck if there’s a sign on your car that says “Honk if anything falls off.”

We often joke with our brother-in-law about being a redneck. Maybe he invites it by wearing shirts that say things like “PETA – People for the Eating of Tasty Animals.” Whatever the case, we always get a laugh out of it and he laughs right along with us.

Laughter is good for the soul, so when you’re out on the backroads, watch for those funny moments and scenes and laugh out loud.

Happy Shunpiking!
