How to Tell if You have White-Trash Roots

HILARIOUS: 'You Know You're A Redneck When' Pictures

[This one is kind of autobiographical… tell no one!]

Your dad spends an entire afternoon explaining to you how best to head-butt a bouncer.

You go to a family wedding and they need a best man and a maid of honor because the bride and groom got into a fist fight with the ones they had.

Your great-grandmother is forty-five years old.

Someone in your family has flipped a pickup truck and that pickup truck wasn’t moving at the time.

You inherit a still from your uncle.

They catch your aunt in bed with your second cousin and everyone is relieved that neither of them is a cow or a goat.

Your grandpa turns his old septic tank into a media room…

At your family reunion, someone gets shot in the leg in a dispute over a can of beer.

Officially, you are still feuding with the family on the next property over.

When applying for work, at least two of your cousins has “lap dancing” under special skills.

Your grandma can spit a watermelon seed through three sheets of saran wrap.

Two words: Squirrel lasagna.

      … just in time for the Vietnam War!
