You Might Have a Good Head on Your Shoulders If . . .
TALK ABOUT ONE-SIDED
Jeff Foxworthy is a very wealthy man thanks to his book, video, and stand-up comedy routine, “You Might Be a Redneck If . . .” Foxworthy also went on to several successful tours entitled: “The Blue Collar Comedy Tour,” and joined Bill Engvall, Larry, The Cable Guy and Ron White for what most comedy experts would say was the funniest and best-performing comedy troupe ever.
These four geniuses with comic minds also had a successful television show on the CW Network and it bore the title of their tour, “The Blue Collar Comedy Show.” The show played to filled arenas far and near.
FOXWORTHY: A MAN OF MANY TALENTS
Foxworthy even tried the sitcom game with a show entitled, naturally, Foxworthy, where he owned his own heating and air conditioning company and was married to a knock-out blond, and for some reason, the show “didn’t make the cut.” He also had a show entitled, “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth-Grader?” that ran for four years and currently, Foxworthy is starring and producing another hit show: “The Great American Bible Challenge,” so although Jeff Foxworthy is wealthy enough to retire, he chooses to do what he loves: Bring happiness to people.
One night this week, I began thinking about how Foxworthy, bless his heart, left us hanging with his “redneck routine,” because he didn’t produce a funny counterpart telling “You might be an intelligent redneck if . . .” routine. That almost irritated me. We rural rednecks of Hamilton, Ala., my hometown, deserve better. We deserve the entire picture. Yeah! Can I get a loud “You bet?”
Well, since Jeff will not return my calls or answer my emails as to why he “deserted” us, I am going to man-up and take care of this loose end myself and provide my very own sequel to Foxworthy’s redneck “money maker,” with my . . .
