“You’re redneck if entertainment is a bug zapper and a six-pack”

A popular redneck joke is:

“You might be a redneck if…
...you consider a six-pack and a bug zapper to be quality entertainment.”


American stand-up comedian Jeff Foxworthy wrote a book of redneck jokes titled You Might Be a Redneck if... and has included this joke since at least 1990.
