The redneck stuff is pretty common but this one was unique enough to make me laugh out loud a couple times. Thanks, I needed that!
Take care.

Very good, yet another enjoyable blog from you. See, thats because it's QANTAS and us Aussies know how to have a laugh! Just finished your doggie BBQ story too. I look forward to the next one.

I've seen this thing done in a motorcycle version which leads me to think that neither are authentic. What do I know though? I have trouble tying my own shoes and I just recently starting wiping my own ass.
That's not true.....I can tie my shoes just fine.

Laugh out loud funny! I'd seen something similar. It was supposedly a transcript of a radio communication between an aircraft carrier and a lighthouse. :_)

I was in the USAF for many years and yes, I enjoyed reading these. They brought back memoriesof a good time in my life. Folfs in the aviation world have a good sense of humor.
