25 Reasons That You Might Be A Redneck And Not Know It

Rednecks tend to bear the brunt of many of our jokes. And just so you know, for those of you from Australia, the equivalent of a redneck would be a bogan, or in the United Kingdom, a bumpkin. So you can see why they are at the receiving end of all those jokes. In much of the English speaking world, rednecks (or hillbillies as they are sometimes called) are considered to be lower educated, poorer, and typically living in rural areas. This inevitably leads to vast cultural differences between more rural and urban populations, so just as urbanites are often made fun of in rural contexts, in more educated circles, it is often the redneck that becomes the punchline.

Without getting to much into the socioeconomics of this phenomenon, today we are going to get somewhat of a laugh from a very typical redneck-type joke. These jokes were really propelled to the forefront of popular culture by Jeff Foxworthy and the Blue Collar Comedy tour. Ever since then, other comedians have elaborated upon them significantly. The basic premise, as you will see in a moment, is best summed up in the title of our article. These are 25 reasons that you might be a redneck and not know it!
