                  There was a sign for about a year and a half, along highway US 23 in northern Michigan

                  It said in giant letters:
                  LAND FOR SALE: 1 ACRE

                  Underneath in much smaller letters:

                  with house.


                  I don't see it up there anymore, so apparently they suckered somebody into buying property with a house on it. shhhh!

  8. habee profile image90

    Tantrum, I think that depends on your definition of "redneck." Many in the South consider a redneck someone who's down to earth. Someone unpretentious who enjoys activities like sports, camping, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, and gardening. Someone who doesn't take himself too seriously. Most rednecks are conservatives or moderates. They're not limited to the South, either! The Midwest has loads of rednecks!

      1. Michael Willis profile image77
        Michael Willisposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        It can be an attitude as well for those in the south. Most think of a redneck as a poor dirty uneducated hillbilly.....but that is not all true anymore.

    Tantrum, I'll give you my husband's definition of a redneck woman: A woman who will fish with him and get down and dirty cleaning the fish. Then she'll be able to make a delicious meal of fried fish, grits, slaw, and hushpuppies. This same woman should be able to to transition easily the next night, getting all dressed up to go out to a fancy party!

        There is a shop in Gatlinburg, Tenn. which sells those type of signs.  Can't remember the name though.  I started to buy a street sign which said "Asshole Alley" and another one with "Cold Hearted Bitch Way" on it.

        A shop called "The Acorn" may have been the one, if not, they can tell you which shop it was.

    i think if everyone lived on houseboats it would be a better world. if you don't like your neighbors  you could just go set up shop somewhere else. plus you could just fish for catfish when you get hungry. i even like trailers and i don't live in one but i secretly want to.
