Is that the mud where they have the, um, redneck games? Or is there another mud puddle somewhere South of the Carolinas.

googled. Answered my own question. The Redneck Games are held in Georgia. A different mire. According to Wikipedia article, "Redneck Games":

Some events that were held during the Redneck Games included:

The cigarette flip
Bobbing for pig's feet
Seed spitting
Toilet seat throwing
Mud pit belly flop
Big-hair contest
Wet T-shirt contest
Armpit serenade
Bug zapping by spitball
Dumpster diving
Hubcap hurling

For each of the events, a trophy is awarded; a half crushed, empty mounted beer can.

Redneck Mud Pit is the name of the most popular Pitbull tribute competitive synchronized dance team.

But if you go to a spa and pay $$$ for a mud bath then you are refined.

Not porcine, just part of our own species' larger attraction to water, I'd bet.

Getting wet and/or dirty scratches some ancient itch in us, that's for sure.

We used to have a redneck bar in my town, which was so bad that every week end the cops just hovered around the place and EMS was a frequent visitor. The cops found it to be a time wasting PIA since even when they jailed the buggers, they went back when they got out and did it again,

The city grew and eventually the Mayor decided that the bar was making the city look bad. They tried to clean it up by parking police officers in their cars in the parking lot. That didn't work. The bar was fined for anything that they could find to fine it for. That didn't work.

Here, a bar has to renew it's liquor license every few years to stay in business. When it came due, the city declined it, citing a looong string of fights, injuries, knifing's, shootings and the cost to EMS and the hospital for the pile of injuries they had to patch up.

It was shut down. A bunch of rednecks were infuriated but could not do anything. Most went to the redneck bar in the next city over which made them someone else's problem.

I worked in the hospital at that time and closing the bar down made a big difference in the ER on weekends. For one thing, I did not get as many calls to go to the ER because a shot up or sliced up redneck was thrashing around, drunk out of his mind and giving the nurses and Dr. hell. Back then, we only had one armed security guard and from time to time I'd get called off the floors to basically back him up.

These days, the place where the bar was is now a new business, the building having been torn down long ago.

I think this place needs to close down that little slice of hell park. Depending on how many of the local politicians the owner knows and how much money it makes.

That would be Dublin, Georgia. East Dublin to be exact. And, yes, the populace of each scorns the other for their behavior.

As a fresh-faced teenager, fleeing parental control, Dublin is where I first landed. Quaint, but not my style. Too "click-ish."

If it wasn't for redneck mud park my wife would not be pregnant now.

Where are the tabacco spitting events? One for distance and one for accuracy!

After the building were torn down did anyone make a blood sacrifice and salt the earth purifying it so the redneck spirit is sent away? If this wasn't done then the rednecks may come back and infect your town again like cockroaches!

If you practiced more you may have won some events and then been a local hero!

Loogie-hocking and tobacco-spitting are both demonstration sports at this year's Redneck Games.

The difference between your redneck bar and this place is that in Florida, most of us seem to somehow like it this way.

Tough mudders have pretty much zero in common with the redneck mud games.

Tough mudders = rich, fit people working their asses off on an obstacle course.
Redneck mud games = poor, fat people driving 1979 Chevy Blazers through mud pits.

the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office said that more videos of the fight exist and are requesting anyone with any recordings to please hand them over for their investigation.

Have they checked Worldstar?

Despite the [wut?] Charlotte County Sheriff's Office said that more videos of the fight exist and are requesting anyone with any recordings to please hand them over for their investigation. a sick fight compilation video they are putting together.

The investigation will include them sitting around computer, picking their favorite hits and yelling, "ohhhh, he got clooocked!", etc.

Sorry to hear about the young man dying for sure. This video is worth watching just to hear the weird accent/dialect Shannon Clowe has. I kept trying to place it and then it would go somewhere else.

If you think that you got your wife pregnant by visiting the "mud park", it might be time to sit down and have a serious conversation. It's time to start asking questions, is what I'm saying. Or you're doing it wrong.

So you decided to move into stupid, what does that say about you? They at least have an excuse they were born there and couldn't get out...

There were so many big stupid trucks on the highway last Friday and over the weekend (Fl 75) - well more than usual.   Now I know why
