Yeah, those Amish, they've always been a bad element.

Funny scene I witnessed a few months ago. We could hear the usual steady clip clop of a buggy heading down our road towards us, but we could also hear music being played fairly loud. Then we see the buggy pass, with about 8 teenage male Amish packed inside, one with a boombox playing C.W. McCall's "Convoy". Ah, Rumspringa.

Hezekiah has the dopest buggy out of all the Amish teens. One horse power, two in the winter. Sometimes he hooks up a Shetland pony to make it a low-rider.

Amish have made lots of reforms recently. I would sooner mess with a retarded midget (and we all now how that can get ugly in a hurry) than an Ohio Mennonite. Just sayin'.

Don't confuse Amish with Mennonites. Mennonites use electricity, drive cars, hold jobs in the community, send their kids to public schools (sometimes), etc. Very different than the Amish which are a closed community.

I looked it up and understand what you mean. Just like everyone that carries a Book of Mormon is not a Mormon. Mormons are LDS members headquartered in Utah. RLDS members carries the Book of Mormon, however they don't do any of the weird stuff that gets the LDS church in the news. Other than extra books, RLDS don't really live life that differently than the Mennonites. It is the weird splinter group that draws a lot negative attention.

I remember in the olden days (60s), the Amish kids in our county in southern Indiana would hold "road dances" -- several buggies would meet at a deserted rural crossroads, break out the beer and crank up the music. Due to the limited number of Sheriff's patrols way out in the corn and bean fields, they'd only occasionally get caught, but it always made a nice inside-page story in the local paper.

Good times, good times...

After seeing your pic, it just struck me, no mustaches. Is that Amish or just these 8 individuals?
I always knew they didn't shave, or thought so, never realized they shaved selectively.
Are the Amish girls allowed to shave their legs?
 
2012-03-12 02:43:38 PM  
Sounds like they were drag racing to me. Probably feed the horses rice, too.
 
2012-03-12 02:49:38 PM  
So, what's the legal BAC limit for horses?
 
2012-03-12 02:55:59 PM  
Not that Amish buggies are slow, but the cops could take a coffee break while keeping them in sight and catch up to the buggies 5 mintues later. How would that traffic stop go? "You in the buggy! Turn off your engine, er, unhitch your horse and toss the keys, er, reins out the window!" And what if they have to tow the "vehicle," call Jeddidiah's Buggy Tow? They can't cause there aren't any phones in their homes!!

The men shave, however they grow a beard once they are declared men. Those 8 men are the Mullet gang that was going around shaving the beards off other Amish. How did you miss this? They even used electric clippers.

It brings up a good point though. The Amish are a bit camera shy (stealing their soul or something) How do they handle mugshots? Sketch artist?

/obviously they photo'd this bunch, but they were pretty weird anyway, even by Amish standards

No mustaches, just the chin beards.

2012-03-12 04:11:28 PM  
If I remember correctly, they don't grow mustaches for reasons similar to why they don't wear buttons. Back in the 1600's the military style in the Swiss/Austrian/German region where they came from was all about big brass buttons and big wild mustaches. So, no mustaches and no buttons (only hooks and eyes) applies to both the anti-prideful theme and also the pacifist theme.

It has nothing to do with stealing their soul. It has to do with the biblical prohibition against the making of graven images. It also plays into the "prideful" thing.

Deucednuisance: I have a little Budgie, He is my very pal
I take him walks in Britain and I hope I always shall.

Very possibly obscure, even for Fark.


The Fat Budgie: by John Lennon

The Fat Budgie

I have a little budgie
He is my very pal
I take him walks in Britain
I hope I always shall.

I call my budgie Jeffrey
My grandads name's the same
I call him after grandad
Who had a feathered brain.

Some people don't like budgies
The little yellow brats
They eat them up for breakfast
Or give them to their cats.

My uncle ate a budgie
It was so fat and fair.
I cried and called him Ronnie
He didn't seem to care

Although his name was Arthur
It didn't mean a thing.
He went into a petshop
And ate up everything.

The doctors looked inside him,
To see what they could do,
But he had been too greedy
And died just like a zoo.

My Jeffrey chirps and twitters
When I walk into the room,
I make him scrambled egg on toast
And feed him with a spoon.

He sings like other budgies
But only when in trim
But most of all on Sunday
Thats when i plug him in.

He flies about the room sometimes
And sits upon my bed
And if he's really happy
He does it on my head.

He's on a diet now you know
From eating ear too much
They say if he gets fatter
He'll have to wear a crutch.

It would be funny wouldn't it
A budgie on a stick
Imagine all the people
Laughing til they're sick.

So that's my budgie Jeffrey
Fat and yellow too
I love him more than daddie
And I'm only thirty-two.

I like that last couplet. Cheeky monkey!

This happened half a mile from my childhood bestfriend's house. Most people that live out there have crazy stories about Amish parties and what not. When it all boils down they are just people and make the same dumb mistakes we do, especially when alcohol is involved.

I know folks that have passed Amish buggies going down the road with nobody in them (they got drunk, passed out and fell out but horse knows the way home)
Amish buggies being dragged on its side down the road with the drunk guy still inside
My friend woke up with her large yard torn up really badly and a guy passed out in a flipped over buggie like a 1/4 milke into her back yard that the horse had dragged all over...

The list goes on. Good times.
 
2012-03-12 04:44:17 PM  
That's a bit long, so here's a short one:

If you let the horse have his head, it doesn't matter if you are drunk. He or she will get you home safely, provided the horse is not drunk, or really stupid, even by equine standards of intelligence, which are low. If you are drunk and stupid enough to think you know better than a horse, that's when you are courting trouble.

Let the ass do the drinking, and the horse do the thinking.
