20 Rules of Rural Missouri/Arkansas

Posted on July 11, 2008. Filed under: Humor |

I love this!! Someone emailed it to me so I don’t know where it came from.

20 RULES OF RURAL MISSOURI/ARKANSAS:

1. PULL YOUR DROOPY PANTS UP. YOU LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT.

2. TURN YOUR CAP RIGHT, YOUR HEAD ISN’T CROOKED.

3. LET’S GET THIS STRAIGHT; IT’S CALLED A ‘DIRT ROAD.’ I DRIVE A PICKUP TRUCK BECAUSE I WANT TO. NO MATTER HOW SLOW YOU DRIVE, YOU’RE GOING TO GET DUST ON YOUR LEXUS. DRIVE IT OR GET OUT OF THE WAY.

4. THEY ARE CATTLE. THEY’RE LIVE STEAKS. THAT’S WHY THEY SMELL FUNNY TO YOU. BUT THEY SMELL LIKE MONEY TO US. GET OVER IT. DON’T LIKE IT? I-44 GOES EAST AND WEST, US 65 GOES NORTH AND SOUTH. PICK ONE.

5. SO YOU HAVE A $60,000 CAR. WE’RE IMPRESSED. WE HAVE $150,000 CORN PICKERS AND HAY BALERS THAT ARE DRIVEN ONLY 3 WEEKS A YEAR.

6. SO EVERY PERSON IN THE RURAL OZARKS WAVES. WE THINK OF IT AS BEING FRIENDLY. TRY TO UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT.

7. IF THAT CELL PHONE RINGS WHILE AN 8-POINT BUCK AND 3 DOES ARE COMING IN, WE WILL SHOOT IT OUT OF YOUR HAND. YOU BETTER HOPE YOU DON’T HAVE IT UP TO YOUR EAR AT THE TIME.

8. YEAH, WE EAT TATERS & GRAVY, BEANS & CORNBREAD. WE FRY OUR FISH AFTER ‘CATCHIN’ ‘EM’. YOU REALLY WANT SUSHI & CAVIAR? IT’S AVAILABLE AT THE CORNER BAIT SHOP.

9. THE ‘OPENER’ REFERS TO THE FIRST DAY OF DEER SEASON. IT’S A RELIGIOUS HOLIDAY HELD EVERY FALL.

10. WE OPEN DOORS FOR WOMEN. THAT IS APPLIED TO ALL WOMEN, REGARDLESS OF AGE.

11. NO, THERE’S NO ‘VEGETARIAN SPECIAL’ ON THE MENU. ORDER STEAK. OR YOU CAN ORDER THE CHEF’S SALAD AND PICK OFF A POUND OF HAM & TURKEY.

12. WHEN WE FILL OUT A TABLE, THERE ARE THREE MAIN DISHES: MEATS (INCLUDES FISH), VEGETABLES, AND BREADS. WE USE FOUR SPICES: SALT, PEPPER, HOT SAUCE AND KETCHUP. AND OH, YEAH… WE DON’T CARE WHAT YOU FOLKS IN NEW YORK CITY CALL THAT STUFF YOU EAT… IT AIN’T REAL CHILI!!!!

13. IF YOU BRING ‘COKE’ INTO MY HOUSE, IT BETTER BE BROWN, WET AND SERVED OVER ICE.

14. YOU BRING ‘MARY JANE’ INTO MY HOUSE, SHE BETTER BE CUTE, KNOW HOW TO SHOOT, DRIVE A TRUCK, AND HAVE LONG HAIR.

15. COLLEGE AND HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL IS AS IMPORTANT HERE AS THE BEARS AND THE CHIEFS, AND A DANG SITE MORE FUN TO WATCH.

16. YEAH, WE HAVE GOLF COURSES. BUT DON’T HIT THE WATER HAZARDS—IT SPOOKS THE FISH.

17. COLLEGES? WE HAVE THEM ALL OVER. WE HAVE STATE UNIVERSITIES, COMMUNITY COLLEGES, AND VO-TECHS. THEY COME OUTTA THERE WITH AN EDUCATION PLUS A LOVE FOR GOD AND COUNTRY, AND THEY STILL WAVE AT EVERYBODY WHEN THEY COME FOR THE HOLIDAYS.

18. WE HAVE A WHOLE TON OF FOLKS IN THE ARMY, NAVY, AIR FORCE, MARINES, & NATIONAL GUARD. AND OUR BIKERS ARE PATRIOTS AS WELL. SO DON’T MESS WITH US. IF YOU DO, YOU WILL GET WHIPPED BY THE BEST.

19. TURN DOWN THAT BLASTED CAR STEREO! THAT THUMPITY-THUMP CRAP AIN’T MUSIC, ANYWAY. WE DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT ANYMORE THAN WE WANT TO SEE YOUR BOXERS. (Besides, you’re going to rattle the paint off That flimsy piece of Japanese crap!) REFER BACK TO #1.

20. REFER BACK TO #2…
