Gotta Watch: Rednecks at play

Self-proclaimed "rednecks" gather across the country to enjoy some fun in the mud and we've captured them on video. Watch as some swim in a mud pit, hurl hubcaps and compete in beer-related contests. One woman states "what makes it so fun is that it's a bunch of rednecks getting along."

'Redneck Resort' offers fun in the mud

Watch what some drivers do to "mess up" their vehicles at the Redneck Resort.

Beer + cigarettes + mud = Redneck Games

See what happens when a bunch of rednecks roll around in the mud.

Maine town hosts 'Redneck Olympics'

See how beer plays a role in one of the "Redneck Olympic" games.

    Small town folk get along nicer than big city folk, a no brainer.(put 10 cawkroaches in a box they get along fine...10 million and they eat ea. other)
    And just b/c it say's beer and hubcaps doesn't make it redneck, the word oft' times confused with 'hick'. Even a dumb old hick like me knows when to get his neck out of the sun. At least before it becomes a nickname. Sheesh. (acourse the original redneck was a southern American soldier. (not US though)
    But yeah. Hicks owned lots of slaves just like we employ illegal immigrants today. You don't find too many sheep herds or cotton plantations inside of city limits today or yesteryear.

    @Philip:
    As the first sentence reads "self-proclaimed rednecks", in this case it kinda sorta does means exactly that...

    But really, folks. Ecven if you believe that Adam and Eve were just 'story book lessons' like the flood of Noah's day, wouldn't the lesson be this:
    Adam, if a man like myself or any other man not under the influence of mind-altering substances, had have chanced upon a speaking snake woulld have stomped on it till it was dead. But Eve, to her was revealed the snake. And all we men got was what was leftover from it when she was done!
    Not that the stereotypical enabler of violent man isn't woman, like Mrs. Sandusky, but that all we men have left of badness is what you women leave us!
    Look! If one of US men hump on you to pregnancy, you leave US men with NO choice! (but to badness in God's eyes)

    Seriously, what the hell are you talking about and what the hell has this to do with anything? You find a thread that doesn't have anything on it so you start going of on strange tangents that nobody but you understands? Are you seriously trying to blame women for everything that's wrong with the world? Look inside yourself, and where YOU went wrong can only be blamed by YOU. You seriously need massive therapy and stay on meds...you clearly are off the rails nuts! STAY ON TOPIC!!!

    Bobcats jokes are rarely "on topic", no thanks to you. he he
    Think for a minute. Even if the age old story of Adam and Eve isn't as Jesus described, wouldn't the lesson be "Satan" (if real) can get to a woman but NOT a man?

      Somebody needs to reign you in. You constantly critisize everyone's posts...it's about time someone returned the favor to YOU. You are out of control, and you are too blind to see it. Check yourself into a mental health faility, for you truly need some intensive therapy.

    Hey, remember me? The one who was created AT THE SAME TIME AS Adam, out of the SAME MATERIAL as Adam, the dust of the earth? Her sin was not subjugating herself to Adam when he wanted her to, even though GOD created them as EQUALS. So he wanted the upper hand, instead of living in harmony, and what does he get? Eve...who Adam shared the fruit of knowledge AT THE SAME TIME...but that version didn't coincide with what the church wanted to go into their mysogynist book...so out itwent! Your use of the word hump in almost all of your posts also shows how little regard you have to women and children...you need to really, really get a grip on your ideas, because they do no justice to whatever point you are trying to make, and indeed, makes you look as if you are trying out these blogs as your testing ground for a future as a pulp-fiction writer in dirty mags.

      so umm... just a question or 2. i hope the rest of you will excuse my off topic comment, but lilith, i HAVE to know where you come on your information...

      Now, i'm not an overly religious man. i think the last time i was in a church was for marriage counseling. i don't think i have witnessed more than a handful of sermons in the last decade. but i know in the book of genesis, the bible tells believers that adam was created first. eve was created as a companion for adam, FROM adam. now, the 'dust of the earth' and whatnot (are you wiccan by any chance?), i assume he probably did use some of that. along with ashes. but the bible specifically tells us she was made from adam. that god put adam into a deep sleep and took one of his ribs to make eve.

      the bible also tells believers that satan approached eve through the serpent. eve would have known to resist satan as satan, but as a serpent, she might listen. she took the forbidden fruit first, and presented it to adam.

      now, i'm as dubious about the bible being the true, unaltered word of god as you are. but to my knowledge, the bible is the only text that delivers the story of adam and eve directly. any other belief cannot be, in my eyes, based on fact. even the story of adam and eve isn't based on fact as we commonly accept it, but at least it is derived from "the written word of God". any other theory or speculation is just that. theory and speculation. without so much as a single line of scripture to back it up.

      There are books that didn't make it into the Bible. I have studied these ancient books. That's where I got my information. As I explained in my original post, those texts didn't make it into the Bible, therefore you would not find it there. MANY books didn't make it into the Bible; it was editied by men, after all.

      Where do you get this stuff from? You think that God created man and woman equal, that Adam decided he was above all that and that Eve was his punishment? Then you go on to spout that Adam and Eve sinned at the same time and it was religious folk that changed it to read the way it does today.

      Under what authority do you speak of these things? Its obvious you hold no belief that the Bible is accurate. Where do you get your version of events and what makes your source more credible than the Bible?

      Just curious. All day long people share their disdain for their perceived faults of the Bible before they shell out their version of the truth. Occasionally, just occasionally, Id like to know what makes you so enlightened that you know the "real" story. Surely you have some reason for thinking the way you do. Feel free to share with the rest of us.

    Just a little food for thought. I doubt you will, because your ego stands in the way of any common sense you may have had.

      Fine: it uses hump because it get some strange pleasure out of demeaning people. A dog humps another dog. Get the clue itself. And it would know all about such devices, as plugged in as it is into everybody elses bedrooms as it is. I am almost sure that it has quite the collection to aid in its "research".
