The latest ploy to drive the Taliban and Al Queda out of the mountains of Afghanistan is to send in a team of Alabama Special Forces. Billy Bob, Bubba, Boo, Scooter, and Cooter are being sent in with the following information about the Taliban: 1. There is no limit. 2. The season opened last weekend. 3. They taste just like chicken. 4. They don't like beer, pickup trucks, country music, or Jesus. 5. Some are queer. 6. They don't like barbecue. 7. They were responsible for Dale Earnhardt's death. Should be over in just about a week. Don't you think?

Automag - don't know whether to take your commentary seriously or as a bit of sarcastic bombast for the sake of domestic consumption. By the way, I'm not a hillbilly and I'm not "from" Tennessee :)

I have at least three family members no more than two hops from me (cousins, nephews, uncles) that are legally named Bubba. Carry on. Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

OK, why don't you get the hell out of the South then! You have no idea of the how many SF troops from our state have served the country well and made us proud. Alabama is heavily depended on when Gaurd units start getting activated. What you meant as funny isn't. [V]

Here, this is clearly meant to be a joke...... The latest ploy to drive the Taliban and Al Queda out of the mountains of Afghanistan is to send in a team of Wisconsin Special Forces. Ole, Bubba, Boo, Scooter, and Frank are being sent in with the following information about the Taliban: 1. There is no limit. 2. They don't like pick-em-up trucks. 3. There's a deer hiding behind them, did ya see da 30 pointer.... 4. They don't like beer. 5. Did I mention they don't like beer. 6. They don't like brats. 7. They said Brett Favre sucks. 8. The sooner the Taliban, are gone the sooner they come home. 9. They have killed people that tried drinking beer. 10. Because they killed 3,000 people in a disgusting attack on innocent people. Not to mention that they are Religous fanatacs that believe women have nor Rights, nor does anyone else that doesn't believe in their religon. Should be over in just about a week. Don't you think? Don't take it to serious, if we can't laugh every once in a while the stress will eat us up. Godspeed. [USA]

BTW, I didn't take offense at the original joke but the statement that he wasn't "from" Tennessee. I'm not easily offended but it kind of seems like he's looking at us Southerners as something less than equals. That pisses me off because it's clearly bogus logic. Alabama does play a disproportionate role in call ups as well.

How can he be a damn yankee--he's from Ohio! The way it was explained to me when I moved down here is: The difference between a yankee and a damn yankee is a yankee is a northerner who comes to the south--a damn yankee is one who comes to the south and STAYS. I'm damn proud to be a damn yankee. [:D]

Christ, Automag! It was a fricking JOKE! But your original post: "A hillbilly from TN calling a special forces soldier a redneck.You should move to the Hamptons if you are going to talk like that about your neighbors.you live to close to TIDE COUNTRY to be such a sophisticated ASSHOLE.Yall come back now ya hea." That was pretty inflammatory - all I did was pass on a joke from an Alabama friend of mine. I was born and raised in Pensacola, which is part of what we call LA - lower Alabama. For you to get your fur all out of whack and immediately assume that I am some "Yankee" who is insulting southerners was pretty insulting and off-the-cuff. Take the joke for what it is, not as some insult. Lighten up, dude - you'll live longer :)

I really don't see this as any kind of dig on actual special forces. This is a joke about hillbillies that happen to come from Alabama (come on, are you going to tell me there aren't ANY there?) Plus, and most importantly, it was damn funny. And BTW, I don't see anything wrong with the listed reasons for going after the Taliban...I mean come on, they don't like beer? and best of all, NO LIMIT? Let's go after the Motherf#$#s. From the ND hillbilly, cause I can take a friggin joke. Mike

You have to have hills in order to have "hillbillies", right? Guess all the Alabama hillbillies live up toward Birmingham. No hills here in lower Alabama.

I re-read the original post and as far as I can tell, he didn't call any SF troops redneck ---, he called people from Alabama redneck. He could have substituted any number of southern states and the joke would still be funny. Get your panties out of a wad, and stop being such a PC whiner.
