I’m sure since the election of the first black president of the United States, many racist redneck morons are feeling down this week. Rush Limbaugh in particular. Last week, this fat, drug addicted asshole showed how terrified he is at the reality of a black chief executive that he said, and I quote, “I want him to fail.” What kind of asshole says that about his own president? I, along with most of the literate world, thought George W Bush was a complete fucking retard, but I never wished for him to fail. I didn’t have to, he was incompetent. So, although they are not exactly my target audience, I have decided to dedicate this week’s blog to the redneck in all of us. Have you seen that CMT channel? Since the auditions on American Idol have been uncharacteristically boring and not really worth writing about, I’ve been obsessed with this redneck channel. I mean, it’s hysterical! They have redneck weddings, top 10 redneck moments, even a reality show. It’s like VH1 on four bricks holding up a double-wide.
Now it is easy to make fun of our southern brothers, but I want you to know that I researched this list with BMI (I really need to get a fucking life) and these are all actual registered song titles. I didn’t make them up to be funny, which really should scare the shit out of all of you. I also wanna say that I don’t totally hate country music. Johnny Cash wrote some of the greatest music this country has ever produced. Patsy Cline had a great voice, Hank Williams, George Jones are just brilliant all around musicians, and Chet Atkins was one of the greatest guitar players ever (or should I say “Ghee-tarr”). So, in the spirit of marrying your 13 year old cousin, home made icicles called “beercicles” and driving your lawnmower to the liquor store because your wife hid your car keys, here they are, in no particular order…
