Notes

"Anywhere there are flannel shirts, there are rednecks. It has gone from being an embarrassment to being a badge of honor." --Jeff Foxworthy, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, October 11, 1995

"Other comedians were always razzing me about my accent and being from the South. But I was at a Detroit comedy club one night and it was next to a bowling alley with valet parking. Then I realized there were rednecks up north, too."

"If you've ever put Astroturf in the back of your pickup, you might be a redneck." --Foxworthy

"If you wear a dress that's strapless with a bra that isn't, you might be a redneck."

"If you dad walks you to school because you're in the same grade, you might be a redneck."
