RedNeck = RedSkin

The other night Jacob was a cowboy. The criteria for being a cowboy is wearing a cowboy hat, chaps, cowboy boots, cowboy belt, cowboy guns, and talking in a distinct Southern drawl. Chris commented to him, "Boy, you're not a cowboy; you're a redneck!" To which Jacob replied with the deep South accent, "I'm not a redneck!" Chris said, "Do you even know what a redneck is?" With all the cowboy confidence in the world, Jake retorted, "Yep, shore do! A redneck is a person with a red neck which is a redskin which is a Indian which plays football!" Son, are you "shore" your name ain't Billy Bob?

* Redneck Disclaimer: The term redneck used in our family is not meant as a derogatory term. You'd just have to live here to be one. In fact, we can thoroughly appreciate the humor in the "You know you're a redneck if..." jokes because of prior personal experiences!

There is nothing wrong with being a redneck (though I am NOT one!). But being a redskin is reprehensible. GOOOOOO COWBOYS!
