A whole lot of redneck fun

I was supposed to blog about a whole bunch of funny redneck stuff after a lengthy conversation with someone who lives in Georgia...but I cant remember what any of it was. I think that I was so horrified by the concepts that I was learning about, that my brain immediately blocked them all out.

Except dipping.

Shoving tobacco into your mouth, and like...sucking on it. And as if that wasnt bad enough, people have to spit the black tar out into cups that they constantly carry around with them. I cant even BEGIN to imagine what that would smell like....a cup, just for spit.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think this sounds incredibly sexy??

The 2 people I work with are from the South and both admit to chewing tobacco, although they dont at work. These are financial consultants in senior positions and incredibly smart.

One of them was traveling a few days ago and told me that he was sitting between 2 southern gentlemen, who put tobacco in their mouths in front of him. He said that during the duration of the flight (over 4 hours) he never saw them spit. He believes they swallowed the juice. Yummy!

Y - I cant even begin to imagine what swallowing tobacco juice would taste like...probably like puke. Or worse.

I've heard that tabaccoo causes small cuts in your mouth through which the tabacoo is absorbed - ewww!

Px said...

great stuff

so glad we don't have hicks and rednecks in the UK

Lindsey said...

yeah...see the REALLY bad part of it is when they have their dip cup in the cup holder in your car next to YOUR regular cup and you grab the wrong one accidentally. Yeah...that's happened to lots of people. Not me of course...but yeah. It happenes.

Princess Pessimism said...

Rawbean - That sounds horribly unplesant....

PX - You've got them as tourists right? Can you pick out tourists immediately? Would you freak it you saw a redneck?

Linny - OHHHH thats SO bad!!!

Phil said...

Was it Lindsey you were talking about? I think she must be a tobacco chewer.

Phil said...

I have a great story from college about chewing tobacco that would just kill you. Maybe I'll e-mail it to you.

Natalia said...

I so don't get it. I am an ex-smoker and I can attest to the bad smelss and tastes. But ciggies make more sense than just sticking the was in your mouth....ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

Zack said...

I don't dip but I have to say the people that do make it work somehow.

Except for all the nasty shit they spew out of thier pie holes.

Princess Pessimism said...

Philly - I would LOVE to hear that story....as well as the one about how hard it is to buy patns. LOL!!!!!

Natalia - I couldnt agree more. Wadding up slimy tobacco?? And then sucking on it? No thank you.

Zack - Make it work? LOL!!! I'll have to take your word for it becuse Ive never actually witnessed it in real life.

Ewwwww... I had a friend who had lived "somewhere down there" explain this concept to me. ugggg

I didn't see any rednecks in the UK, but the chavs are almost as bad.

Scott said...

Oh man dipping is as gross as it gets.

Trib said...

One of my old roommate's friends used to chew and once threw away his spit cup in our trash. After a couple of days the smell was awful. So much worse than the regular ol' rotting garbage smell that it took us awhile to figure out where it was coming from. Disgusting habit.

Amichai said...

That's why we should bring back the spitoon for public places (but really just because I like saying the word "spitoon").

And I will admit thinking there is nothing sexier than a big black wad of black/brown ooze shooting out of someones mouth.

Wait, no, I must be confusing me with someone else becuase I don't think that's sexy at all.

Princess Pessimism said...

Bleph - Was that H? When she lived in Alabama?? If yes, we never discussed this. :o)

Scott - Its pretty gross...but not as gross as having to mop the floor at a XXX theater after the late show. LOL!!!

Trib - Lysol doesnt even kill that smell?

Amichai - I also like the word spitoon. Its like Cartoon...but not really. LOL

Katie said...

lol...that is so funny

a know people that dip and it really is nasty.

not all southern poeple are like these. I'M NOT lol

blepharisma said...

No, no... was not H (was it Alabama or Arkansas?). I'm sure she saw her share of rednecks, tho! Hahahaha...

Steven Novak said...

I suddenly have the urge to do a little dipping....

Is that wrong? ;)

Steve~

Princess Pessimism said...

KT - LOL!!! It is nasty.

Bleph - I thought it was alabama...but you might be right now that I think about it.

Steve - Ohhhh you are trying to turn me into one of your swooning fans by talking about such things. LOL!!!

Big Ben said...

More the half of the guys I played baseball with in the States "dipped" as it is called. Nasty habid, especially when you spill a cup of dip on the floor (of someone else's car).

Princess Pessimism said...

Ben - EWWWWW....gag! LOL

Miss Ash said...

EWE so gross. I can't stand when people spit in general let alone carry around a cup of it.
