Oh this will do NOTHING to eliminate the stereotypical jokes about Iowans and farm equipment.

I wonder if they're related to Jango and Boba?
2002-10-15 08:34:25 AM  
And if you do, for God's sake, don't use a Cockshutt.

Some folk'll never assault a cop, but then again some folk'll...

This is satire, right? No, seriously, this really didn't happen, it couldn't have. The guy's name is Virgil Dean Fett. His son's name is Billy Dean Fett. They were pulled over for driving past a horse-drawn wagon, intentionally spraying it with gravel. Then Virgil tells Billy to run over the officer with a combine??? These people are living, breathing "You Might be a Redneck..." jokes.

I wonder if the mom/wife is Bobbi Dean Fett (or some such variation).

Anyone care to guess what their favorite sausage brand is?

WHALE - I came into here just to say the Boba and Jango comment! Good work.
2002-10-15 08:51:28 AM  
The Judge should sentence them to 80 hours of community service with PETA, for spraying gravel on the horses. Heh heh.

Kids now a days just don't listen to their parents anymore. If this kid was better disciplined he would have taken out this cop with the combine. Sheesh

2002-10-15 09:16:58 AM  
No, that's just the face he makes when he's getting a hand-job..

I'm going to hell..
2002-10-15 09:27:18 AM  
Huh? (conf00sed!!)
2002-10-15 09:27:25 AM  
BOBA Fett wouldn't have missed!
2002-10-15 09:31:02 AM  
***cough,redneck, cough*** Released after they promised to return for court. Let me guess, the court house is in the Judge/Mechanics backyard on days that don't start with an "S".

The officer, Nora Springs' Police Chief Alex Leu, was not struck by the combine operated by Billy Fett, but he cut his hand on barbed wire while chasing the younger man, authorities said.

i was going to make a reference to the eternal life device, but the cops name only sounds a little similar
2002-10-15 10:06:30 AM  
Just I the only who saw "combine" and thought "concubine"?
2002-10-15 10:13:17 AM  
Whoa, you could hit me with a concubine any time!

I live my whole life in the city. I've never been to a farm. I've studied engineering, english, history, philosophy...yet when people hear I'm from Iowa, this is the kind of thing they think of. Damn yokels.

WafflesAreGreat: yes, waffles are great. i think i'll get one now

Squidhead - well, that's what happens when you live in a state where everyone is a redneck hayseed who drives his tractor town.

Guess they couldn't get tickets to a White Sox game.
2002-10-15 11:22:43 AM  
Damn. Don't mess with the Fetts.
2002-10-15 05:31:37 PM  
Getting your nuts cut off in a combine, that's the way to go... </naked gun>
2002-10-15 06:10:36 PM  
Are the Fetts related to the LaGues, or whoever it was the
attacked the Royals first base coach?
2002-10-15 06:24:19 PM  
I'm dumb, what does PSA stand for?

"Some folk'll never assault a cop, but then again some folk'll..."

Like Cleetus the slack-jawed yokell.
