I demand an apology from the writer of this headline.

'git' ?? Hersh your fool mouth before I take a switch to ya.
2002-12-31 03:36:44 PM  
Is he a git?

You know you're way down on the totem pole if you're being made fun of by Virginians.

Hey Hey!

Score one for my Alma Mater. UVA has no marching band. The Pep Band is it, and they're independant of the University. It's a club, not a course.

hot gits?
2002-12-31 03:39:54 PM  
AHAHAHAHAHAHA! AAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! West Virginian's deserve it too! What a sad little, inbred, hick-ass state! I have to drive through that hell hole 2 times a year heading to Pittsburgh, and it is the, most, redneck place... ever!

West Virginia Gov. Bob Wise wants an apology from the University of Virginia after a halftime show by the school's pep band in the Tire Bowl lampooned West Virginia's rural image.

Tire Bowl? WTF?

I thought that my Gators having to play the Outback Bowl was the ultimate insult. At least now I can be glad we didn't get the Tire Bowl.
2002-12-31 03:41:29 PM  
The same WV Governor that was completely unprepared for yet agregiously appreciative of the media attention from the Powerball win?

You'd be excited too if you just got TV last year.. [rimshot]
2002-12-31 03:42:14 PM  
*ba doom, chish!*
2002-12-31 03:42:40 PM  
Maybe they'd find it easier to overcome those stereotypes if they would put shoes on.
2002-12-31 03:42:51 PM  
(that was a rim-shot, done by the human mouth, so you know)
2002-12-31 03:43:52 PM  
Dumb Virginia rednecks! Dat ain't how we do it down here in North Carolina!

/laughing quietly to myself/
2002-12-31 03:44:03 PM  
Attic you are going to have to put your hair in pigtails and wear a much more "Hee Haw" dress in your photo if y'all are gonna talk lahk thet.

I like redneck hillbillies.....

Well they're not all that rural if they've got the mock political correctness oh-i'm-so-offended bullshiat down. They've proven they can be as new-millennium retarded as any state with this crap.
You'd get the same reaction if the pep team did a parody of soccer moms in some state in the northeast.
2002-12-31 03:44:54 PM  
"some folk'l never eat a skunk but then again some fok'l, Cletus the Slack jawed yokel."
they should have played that, that'll learn ya ya mouth breathin humungulous mongloids!
2002-12-31 03:45:04 PM  
good one Hassenpfeffer, I'll use it one day
2002-12-31 03:47:36 PM  
Wise wants 'unfounded stereotypes' to stop

But what about the founded stereotypes?
2002-12-31 03:47:56 PM  
You know, that little skit was probably out of line, but when your state's top-ranking Democrat was in the KKK - and a ranking member, too - expect the redneck jokes to start flying.
2002-12-31 03:49:49 PM  
What do you call a girl from West Virginia who can outrun her father and brothers?
2002-12-31 03:50:17 PM  
a virgin
2002-12-31 03:50:36 PM  
like back when they dressed up someone in a prison suit and ran him around the field, as the pep band chased him when they played maryland, and the maryland governor was being investigated by the police?

yea... I hope to join the UVA pep band in 2 years =]
2002-12-31 03:51:03 PM  

2002-12-31 03:51:33 PM  
Unfounded? I thought there was always a little truth in every joke. It was the Tire Bowl, I mean, puhhleeese.
2002-12-31 03:51:54 PM  
2002-12-31 03:52:14 PM  

Sorry about that.
2002-12-31 03:52:38 PM  
It's apprioiate that West Virginia is playing in the Tire Bowl

there's only two ways this WV/UVA thing can go..

#1- 20 more years of not playing each other

#2- an annual rivalry.

this UVA stuff isn't as bad as what has been done before (stanfordcolumbiabands), and plus they must have held back on what they wanted to say.

"One female, purported to be from West Virginia, had blue overalls, no shoes, pigtails, a sexual relationship with her father, brother and cousin, a talent for square dancing, membership in the KKK and a dream to move to Beverly Hills, Calif."

Is there some reason that my font suddenly changed when I hit refresh?
2002-12-31 03:53:31 PM  
Yes, Ad, there is.
2002-12-31 03:53:35 PM  
New font! Sexy!
2002-12-31 03:53:44 PM  
The farking West Virginians are farking with the font thingy.
2002-12-31 03:53:54 PM  
It's only funny because deep down, Virginia knows that it's no better.
2002-12-31 03:54:02 PM  
The West Virginians that I know would have laughed. *shrug*
2002-12-31 03:54:24 PM  
TOO BAD. Rednecks and fat people are still legitamate targets for stereotypes and humour.

That is, until they start calling themselves Fatass-Americans or Whitetrash-Americans and blindly vote for a certain politcal party.......

Maybe these two "disinfranchised" groups could form a coalition political party together. I would call them the NASCARats.
2002-12-31 03:54:54 PM  
If Virginia is for lovers, what is WV for?
2002-12-31 03:55:14 PM  
I am sort of new at the computer stuff and I thought it was my fault.
2002-12-31 03:56:02 PM  
I think that pep band should be punished by making them all squeel like a pig.

2002-12-31 03:56:02 PM  
To bad the band didn't burn a cross or lynch a 'porch monkey'. They would've gotten a standing ovation, with hoots and hollers!
2002-12-31 03:56:55 PM  
Best film ever....

what the heck is the "Tire Bowl"? besides some after season football contest between rednecks? seems the bowl naming thing has become completely out of hand.
2002-12-31 03:58:44 PM  
heh, if the governer wants to do away with these "stereotypes"... I'm really starting to wonder if he's actually been to west virginia. I swear between at least OH/WV you can see the ugliness difference within 50 feet of the border.
2002-12-31 04:00:39 PM  
Tidy Bowl...WTF..er...sorry can't read
2002-12-31 04:00:48 PM  
Ahhh, Errk
the good members of Troma and yet another classic
2002-12-31 04:01:13 PM  
Being from West Virginia, I'd love to defend my state and express outrage at these derogatory stereotypes....

Unfortunately, it's true. Maybe not to the comical extent portrayed by the UVA pep band, but hell, this place is overflowing with dimwitted troglodytes whose aspirations include retiring to Myrtle Beach, SC and owning an F-250. People who come here to get edumakated are out of the state by the time the graduation ceremony is over. However, having Virginia pointing out our flaws is ironic at best; that's like Kentucky badmouthing us for runnin' stills.
2002-12-31 04:01:21 PM  
"Tire Bowl"????

Yep, has to be NASCAR country....
2002-12-31 04:02:25 PM  
mt brother was at that game, considered he went just cause it was a bowl game, i think, and said it was funniest shiat he ever seen at game, and something about the football team trying to run over the band
2002-12-31 04:03:19 PM  
Ummm, excuse me, but they were playing each other in the tire bowl! That means you're all rednecks. Nascar fans for sure.
2002-12-31 04:03:49 PM  
This has West Virginia all over it
