Rednecks Share Their Country Wisdom

VISTA, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Rednecks are more than just beer-guzzling, country-loving folks – they are wise gurus too.

That’s what author Jaimie Muehlhausen learned while compiling Redneck Words Of Wisdom (Chronicle), which features over 500 wise redneck sayings including this pearl: You gotta be 10 percent smarter than the equipment you use.

Muehlhausen, who was born in Oklahoma, says he was inspired to write the book after he asked a hungover uncle how he was feeling and the man replied: “I feel like I got eaten by a bear and s off a cliff.”

Some of the other homespun phrases making the book include...

  • She’s as ugly as homemade soap.

  • I’m happier than a puppy with two peters.

  • That went over like a fart in a wetsuit.

    Muehlhausen says redneck phrases are insightful because they have a “genuine truthfulness to them” – even if they don’t always make sense.
