Plant City Fl! We used to pick strawberres there! My parents and brother still live in Fl, but now I live among these Rednecks in Suburban GA! When I moved here, I was surprised by the number of Rural Folk that act like that picture!

LOL ya'll. There was a blog related to this picture and I wish I had captioned it at the time, but someone wrote: 'You sure got a pretty mouth, boy' as one redneck would say to the other while a Deliverance banjo jumps out it's hillbilly twang. And BH - yes, as a matter of fact, the guy that is celebrating with wild abandon for claiming the prized pig's foot just happens to be my half-brother/uncle/stepfather. The rest are cousins.

I saw the website that shows pictures of the people and the events for that redneck festival a month or so ago. I'm from the south but I was shock to see some of that stuff they do.
