What makes a person a redneck?

I just moved to the midwest. Does that automatically make me one now? What mannerisms should I adopt?

  • Calling someone a Redneck is the same as calling someone a niger

  • Oh my God with all due respect...why wouldn't you want to be who you just are.'
    I lived in Kansas..for 2 1/2 years...Lord help me..I did not want to be anything than what I was a Jersey girl with an attitude. Just because you move does not mean you have to be someone else.

  • No dear. It's not automatic just because of geography. Have you started chewing yet? Does your idea of "dressing up" include worn out wranglers and boots? Have you given up on perfume yet because it doesn't do any good when everyone around you smells of manure? Better yet, do you find it acceptable to go out to dinner when YOU smell like manure?

  • Do you have 4 cars, none of which are running, sitting on cylinder blocks in your front yard?
