What can I say. I'm a paradox. Still, how wise can I be if I antagonize a red-head. It is not wise, but at times can be fun. Nobody fights back like a fiery red-head.
Still, we obviously have different definitions of redkneck. Redkneck does not mean slack-jawed yokle. We just tend to be engenious with the situations we have at hand.
Unoading a truck by driving backwards really fast and slamming on the brakes is a timesaving redkneck strategy. Lighting the flexible gas line to the water heater on fire to use it as a blow torch (for soldering newly installed waterheater pipes) seems stupid at first, but when you think about it, it is also brilliant. Planting a garden seed with a shotgun, also a brilliant timesaver. Using sawdust to grow mushrooms and burning the rest to make lye for soap is a thrifty use of resoruces. Fixing a flat tire with engine starting fluid (either) and tossing in a match is also brilliant.
Redknecks are not stupid, we are just akward in the way we approach things. IF we are missing fingers, at least we can say that it was a good idea at the time.
