    I couldn’t even watch the whole thing. It made my ears bleed

  2. Tango says:

    Have you encountered Brad Paisley’s “Online”?

    Cletus was always a bit annoying…

  3. mark says:

    yeah, i thought it was shit.

  4. Momoko says:

    I think this entertains me far more than it should. *grins* It just cracks me up.

  5. Gary's Friend Mike's Friend Jim says:

    If you want to hear a song that really rips rednecks apart, check out the song “Six Guys, Ten Teeth” by Paul and Storm, at http://www.paulandstorm.com. Click on “Songs” and scroll down until you get to the “Opening Band” album.

  6. Aaron says:

    That’s a riot. Thanks for the warning on the country music, I would have just shut it off if I hadn’t had the warning.

    Sadly, I get students in who:

    A. Talk like that.
    B. Have less knowledge of the computer.
    C. Are usually trying to fight a drug charge by looking up legal info.
    D. Openly admit “this new fangled technology dun wurk gud fer me.”

    If you selected

    E: all of the above

    you’d be right.

    Southern GA; Where hick and tech are like oil and water.

    (The above is intended as a joke. There are plenty of nice southern GA folks who are highly adept at computer tech. I just never see them. Ever.)

    Next time more Buck and less Cledus, please. ;)

    And I loved the Hee-Haw reference at the end.

  8. Avaz says:

    I know I shouldn’t have enjoyed that…

    But I did. >_

  9. Tyrel Lohr says:

    Sadly, as Aaron stated, the fictionalized redneck character in the video actually had greater computer skills than most of the folks I run into here in Wyoming.

    In particular I have found that individuals in the the 40-60 age group are extremely hostile towards technology of any kind, computers included. They have to use one (or at least think they do), but they hate the experience and hate the computer. You can’t do anything for this group; you can’t train them, and you can’t get them to quit doing whatever they were doing wrong because it *can’t* be their fault! Oh no, it has to be the computer! *rolls eyes*

    Gotta check this one out… I remember following it when it was new (sadly), but man it cracked me up. My friends and I still refer to JD8 fondly. Well, it doesn’t come across as fond when we use it to describe someone…

  11. Rebecca says:

    I don’t get it. There are plenty of Southerners on the Internet and poor people, in general, have less access to technology … I’m trying to see the point but I can’t.

  12. Cenobite says:

    The first redneck on the intarwebs…and he uses the access to wage war against his ex-wife? How very strange. I would have thought his first priority would be searching for Elvis sightings.

  13. Tylhandrias says:

    And all the intarwebs cried out in pain.
    >_>

  14. Davesnot says:

    Saaaahuhaaalute!

  15. Kristin says:

    The video’s about 10 years old.

    Brad’s is better. And *he* can sing!

  16. TalrogSmash says:

    that Paul and Storm site is rather exhaustive, and I laughed so hard that no operation was required to lower my num organs!!

  17. Marril says:

    Yeah, the Brad Paisley video is much funnier.
