dv-ous: That's weird... Kentucky wasn't a part of the Confederacy.
Sock Ruh Tease: Wikipedia says there is a "biggest potato" contest. I wonder which Kentucky resident will win that one.
Enemabag Jones: cynicalbastard,Well, they weren't, at first. Neither were they "with the Union". Then technically the Confederacy invaded, thus causing the Union to counter-invade. And the Pro-Confederacy Kentuckians said "That's it, we're seceding" and the pro-Union Kentuckians said "Nu-uh! You're General came in first" and the Confeds were all like "Well, Ol' Polk never could read road maps, and anyhow his favourite niece just lives over the border and he prob'ly just wanted a look-see and it wasn't like a real invasion like your guy Grant did" to which the Union guys said "Says you, we're going Union", and the farmers raising livestock and growing food wiped their eyes of tears saying "My, this war between brothers is a terrible thing, now, who's paying best prices for Cavalry horses?"Do you do historical standup? Because you should.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: What is Tater Day, precious?
squibbits: Are Nazi flags still OK?
DROxINxTHExWIND: I bet there will be a lot of people in attendance who have not showered.
iheartscotch: On one hand; some people consider flying The Confederate Battel Flag patriotic.On the other hand; it represented a contengent of states that rebelled against the federal government./ meh; it's just a flag
Rapmaster2000: This year marks the 168th Tater Day full of classic cars, funnel cakes, carnival rides and a parade.I can't decide which is more impressive; that they had a Tater Day before the Confederacy or that they had classic cars at the Tater Day before they had cars.

bgarrett: No Battle Flags, so are Naval Jacks ok?( I know 90 percent of you dont know what the difference is in our flags.)
Citrate1007: The confederate flag is not about your heritage you racist inbreeds.
Egoy3k: Isn't it a little early to have a largest potato contest? Last time I checked you don't harvest potatoes in March. I'm sure you folks in warmer climates harvest them earlier than we do up here in the great white north but still March seems pretty damn early.
