50 People Describe The Most ‘Redneck’ Thing They’ve Ever Done

13. I sang the National Anthem at a NASCAR race.

“When I was 7, I sang the National Anthem at a NASCAR race.

Afterwards I hung out in the VIP area with the Incredible Crash Test Dummies (Vince and Larry) and Smokey the Bear. Since they were ‘backstage’ they weren’t required to wear the big dumb costume heads, just the costumes with their people-heads sticking out. I was a weird little kid, so naturally I was fucking thrilled.”

15. Super-Glued a backyard wrestling wound shut instead of getting stitches.

“I was drunk one day and was attempting to wrestle with my cousin, who is about twice my size. I went to jump through the air and give him the people’s elbow, ended up busting my head open on the corner of the table instead. We Super-Glued the wound shut instead of getting stitches.”

16. Lemonade made through a washing machine.

“A buddy of mine once made a few adjustments to an old washing machine (from someone’s lawn, of course) so he could toss in a bunch of water and drink mix, let the machine do the mixing, and have sweet summer lemonade come out of the drainage hose. The idea of drinking lemonade mixed with decades of clothing-filth and years of lawn-rust didn’t seem to bother him, but he labeled the thing a failure, as the lemonade was “too watered down.””

17. Weed-whacker in place of a gas pedal.

“Gas pedal on my truck wasn’t working. Ran some weed-whacker string from the throttle in the engine bay through the driver side window so I could pull it to accelerate. Got me to the auto parts store so I could get it fixed.”

19. A ‘pool’ in the back of a pickup truck.

“I grew up in a small redneck town there have been many. One that comes to mind is a group of friends and I, on a hot day, put plastic down in the back of a friend’s truck and filled it with water then we climbed in and relaxed in our ‘pool’ while driving around town.”
