I'm pretty sure that I can make hide out of it but hair? I don't think so.

Author relates several anecdotes about hick relatives and concludes that "family" means a group of people enjoying the same things, not geneological relationship.

That's the most coherent thing I've seen come out of Troy in months.

So were they shirtless rabbits or something? I'm very confused.

It's like Forrest Gump wrote that.

That's not "folksy". That's someone trying to be "folksy".

As near as I can tell, it's a firsthand account of the joys of excessive inbreeding ;)

I think the important part is the mental image of an old lady in a nurses uniform going door to door with an enema bag.

I thought you tried to make heads or tails out of something if it was confusing and saw neither hide nor hair of something if it was missing. That story certainly is confusing; it's a shame it's not missing.

It's what we call in the business "a piece of downhomey tripe that can be pulled out of one's arse with little or no research in a moments notice when there are column inches to be filled and you're nursing a collosal hangover."

I would give that story a million out of ten if I had gotten to the last paragraph and it read "I whistled for a cab and when it came near, the license plate said FRESH and it had dice in the mirror...".

I think you need to get out more often...

But yes, that would have been awesome.

This. In spades. That's like someone who once read "folksy" and thought it might be cute to try it sometime for fun.

"Like the time I took the ferry to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe so I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them. Give me five bees for a quarter you'd say. Now where were we, oh ya. The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because if the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones."
