The sporting life

So I'm walking out of the local sporting goods store this afternoon with my freshly minted fishing license, and in comes a guy with a beer gut so big it practically needs scaffolding, accompanied by an equally well-nourished guy. George Clooneys they weren't.

When I get outside I see a bumper sticker on their pickup truck: "Ditch the bitch. Let's go huntin.'"

Because I'm a bad person, this thought immediately burst in my head:

"She'll be glad to have you out of the house, pus-gut."

I'm not sure how many characters like that you're seeing these days, Jeff, but something tells me Florida has got its fair share of good ol' boys too.

I haven't seen any in NYC yet. What neighborhoods would they hang out in?

Yeah.....Florida has it's share of good old boys. Despite their different exterior, most rednecks are first rate human beings.

His dog will be glad to have him out of the house, too.

If that makes you a bad person, I'm a complete failure of a human being.
