Redneck IQ Test Created by a guy who grew up in West Virginia. He says, "I am sick and tired of hearing about how dumb people are in the South. I challenge any so-called smart Yankee to take this exam!"

The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.

The trees are whistling for the dogs.

The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.

Hot water now comes out of both taps.

You can make sun tea instantly.

You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron!

The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.

You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.

You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.

You actually burn your hand opening the car door.

You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.

Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"

You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.

The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.

Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.

The cows are giving evaporated milk. Ah, what a place to call home.

God Bless The State of ARIZONA

I saw a glimmer of hope in congress. I don't know how many of you have been following the CAFTA progress through congress, but many senators on both sides broke ranks on the vote. That is awesome!!! How partison everything is, it is great to see the parties mix things up and have people vote on their own, not on what their party dictates to them.

My feeling on CAFTA in general? Mixed. NAFTA was not the dooms day or panacea it was predicted to be. I do think, in the long term, free trade helps us all. In the short term it will hurt. The idea is some jobs do go south, but with the jobs going south, wages increase gradually in the areas the jobs go to. With their increased money, they buy our products, and money and job return here. Then as the wages in Central America grow to match ours, jobs equalize, trade will be strong, and everyone wins. But there are hazards. We lose jobs to cheaper markets in the short term. Also if the wages in those countries raise to quickly it can cause great strain and inbalance in the culture.

But anyway, I just wanted to hype that there are signs that senators actually do have minds of their own.

Last thing on the Best Cock On The Block contest Shae held... I had a lot of fun making up the posters. People were looking at me funny (at least funnier than normal) as I was sitting there chuckling to myself coming up with ideas. I certainly hope all of you were equally amused. I was hoping a few of you could take the time to rate them.

Thanks for taking part in the contest and for putting up with my flood of images. :-)
